About Campus Housing

Florida Tech is very proud of its student housing because it's more than just a simple room or apartment. We offer a variety of services and activities that makes it feel more of a community. The campus continues to renovate and upgrade facilities to meet the ever-changing needs of our student body. 

Freshman Student Housing Options

First-Year Students Housing Assignments

First-year students who completed their housing application will have the option of selecting their room from April 2nd - June 1st. Starting on June 2nd, the Housing Department will make all housing assignments. Florida Tech emails out all active housing assignments during the 3rd week of June. The Housing Department processes housing applications by the date they are received, and we do our best to accommodate building/roommate preferences. 

Room Change Requests

The housing department will take room change requests during the third week of the semester. The requests are considered on a case-by-case basis and processed on an individual basis, pending space availability. Space is limited, and reassignment is not guaranteed. You are encouraged to work with your RA and RD staff to assist you with any roommate concerns you may be experiencing. 

Two-Year Residency Requirement

Recent research of college students across the nation shows that students who live on campus are more satisfied with their college experience, earn higher grade point averages, and are more likely to graduate than their commuting peers. Residence hall programming also enhances a student's educational experience by providing the opportunity to be involved in various activities and programs. Students find that with this involvement, they achieve more professional growth and are stronger candidates when pursuing their career goals. 

Florida Tech established an educational-based policy requiring all new full-time first-time students to reside in university housing and participate in a meal plan for their first two years in college. (For the complete policy, please see the Student Handbook

Note: If you are a first-year student (or student with fewer than 56 credit hours), do not sign an off-campus lease unless you have received an exemption to the Two-Year Residency Requirement by the Dean of Students office.

Sophomores through Seniors and Graduate Students Housing Options

Please Note:

Spectrum provides Florida Tech Residence halls with a digital signal cable hook-up. Therefore, all televisions must be able to receive a digital signal. Digital conversion boxes are not available through Spectrum. Please check to see that the television you plan to bring with you to campus will receive a digital signal before you arrive in August.  

Housing Deposit Refund - A portion or all of your housing deposit may be forfeited upon check-out if your assigned room or common areas need repairs, replacement, maintenance, disinfection, extermination, or cleaning. Students must submit a housing deposit refund request within 60 days of departure of their housing assignment. Once the request is received and processed, your PAWS account will be credited, less any monies owed to Florida Tech. Please allow six weeks for deposit processing after submission. Deposits over 60 days from last enrollment in housing will be forfeited.
