Residential Life

Our residence halls are far more than a comfy place to lay your head at night. They’re living-learning communities where you can prepare to ace your midterms, share a home-cooked meal with your besties, and unwind after a long day. Whether you’re a social butterfly or an introvert, we’ve got housing options to suit every kind of person. Each of our residential communities offers unique amenities, from poolside paradises and rooms with a view to classrooms and eateries right inside the building. We could go on and on about life on America’s most beautiful campus, but it’s honestly better if we just show you. So explore your options, take it all in, and see exactly what we mean by easy living.

Take a Look Around

They say the best way to get to know a place is through its people, and nobody reps Rollins and Winter Park better than our students. Join a group of Tars as they show you where they live, work, eat, relax, and go to stay active. We think you’ll like what you see.
