Main Campus Housing Residents


Living on campus is part of the full college experience! Our staff is committed to making a living/learning center for our on-campus community. By planning programs, activities of interest, and by advising and counseling, we hope to assist you in your personal growth.

Your Resident Assistant (RA) is a helper; use him/her to help you in any number of ways. For example, they can help you solve a problem or answer a question about campus life, or help you become involved in educational and social activities at NSU.

Step 1: Your Student Account

Please make sure you have satisfied your student account balance. This is accomplished by meeting all financial aid requirements, signing a Promissory Note and/ or signing up for an NSU payment plan. If your student account balance is not satisfied (your financial package covers your entire institutional costs, you have entered into a payment plan or have a signed financial agreement for any uncovered balance) prior to check-in day you will need to report to the Welcome Center located in the Horvitz Administration Building prior to checking into the residence halls to meet with an Enrollment and Student Services (ESS) representative. Prior to check-in day you can schedule an appointment by phone or in-person with an Enrollment and Student Service representative by contacting (954) 262-5200 to ensure you are in good financial standing.

Step 2: Check Your Room Assignment

Before arriving on campus, you will need to log into the Residential Management System (RMS) to check your Room Assignment. At the check-in desk, you will receive your room key, mailing address and other pertient information.

Step 3: Review Moving Checklist Guide and Bed Linen Requirements

To prepare for moving on-campus, the Office of Residential Life and Housing has put together a list of items you should bring to campus before moving into the residence halls.

  • Moving Checklist for the Residence Halls
    Please Note: This list may not contain all the items you need, and is only intended to get you started in the right direction.

Please remember that the residence halls at Nova Southeastern University have extra long twin beds and it is important to purchase the correct sheet size that fit our beds. Please feel free to use the links below to order what you need:

Step 4: Complete Room Assessment Form

The check-in process includes completion of a room assessment form. Your Resident Assistant will review the condition of your room prior to your arrival. It is your responsibility to review the room assessment form when presented to you by your Resident Assistant. If there are any corrections prior to completion of the room assessment form, you need to contact your RA within 24 hours of your check-in date. When you check-out of your room, the room assessment form will be used to assess the condition of your room once again.

If the condition of your room has changed during your stay, you will be assessed for the repair or replacement of items which may have been damaged or are missing from the room. Once again, it is very important to review the condition of your room carefully upon your arrival. Make certain that any problems are noted and contact your RA immediately after checking into your room. This is your opportunity to attest to the condition of the room. It is also important throughout the semester to report any necessary repairs to your RA.
