If you start in the summer B term and wish to live on campus for the summer B, fall, and spring semesters, you will need to repeat steps 1 & 2 for the summer B application in addition to the fall/spring application.

Want to live in a Living Learning Community (LLC)?
Students who would like to live in an LLC must complete the LLC application in the Programs & Events section of the Housing Portal.

Apply early!
Once the first two steps are completed, your place in line is set. Your place in line determines the earliest date and time that you will be able to participate in room selection (check your USF email regularly). However, you will not be eligible to participate in room selection until the first four steps are completed. If you decide not to attend USF, it will be your responsibility to cancel your housing contract before the cancellation deadlines to avoid charges. View the cancellation deadlines in the housing contract.
