How to Apply for Housing

To apply for main campus housing, follow these steps.

  1. Submit your housing application online. If this is your first time applying, you will also need to pay a $500 housing deposit.  Once we have processed your application, we will contact you regarding next steps.
  2. Scan and email your Immunization records to housing@nova.edu, or submit them by fax to (954) 262-3812.
  3. All students living on campus are required to carry adequate health insurance coverage and will automatically be enrolled in the NSU Student Health Insurance plan. Students’ accounts will be charged upon class registration for each semester. If you are insured under another insurance plan, you must opt out of the NSU Student Health Insurance Plan by the given waiver deadline. For more information, visit the NSU Student Insurance page.
