The Commons, which opened in 2007, is NSU's newest undergraduate residence hall. This coed, state-of-the-art, living learning community includes over 500 student beds, various classrooms and meeting spaces, 16 community living rooms, 16 study rooms, and plenty of indoor and outdoor common space.

The Commons is unique and dynamic for the inclusion of living-learning spaces within a community. The 16 community living rooms have comfortable furnishings that create social spaces for our students and groups to conduct study sessions, group meetings, or to congregate with friends.

Nova Southeastern University requires all undergraduate day students with 0-48 credit hours to live on-campus unless one or both of the following criteria applies:

  • You are married or in a domestic partnership;
  • You reside with a parent or legal guardian within the tri-county area (Broward, Dade, and Palm Beach)
  • You are a veteran or active United States military personnel

If you meet one or both of the above criteria, and choose on-campus housing, you must honor the entire term of the housing contract. If you are over the age of 25 or married, you have the option to move into the apartments or live off-campus.

Greek Village Community

This community brings together members of all recognized sororities and fraternities on campus to support the mission of Greek Life.  The Office of Greek Life at Nova Southeastern University is dedicated to the intellectual and personal development of students through membership in Greek-letter organizations. We encourage all members of our community to avail themselves of the scholarship, leadership, and philanthropic opportunities of Greek life membership. Students must be an active member of the NSU Greek system to request a room in Greek Village.

All undergraduate students living in the Commons Residence Hall, regardless of credit hours, must purchase a mandatory $1,495 declining balance plan per semester. If a resident chooses to apply additional funds to their card, they are able to do so at any time.

If a balance exists on a resident's declining balance plan at the end of the fall semester, the resident's funds will roll over to the winter semester. Once the winter semester has ended, the remaining balance will no longer be available to the resident.

All rates include unlimited laundry, NSU secured wireless internet, furnishings, utilities, air conditioning, cable TV, and local telephone service. All housing and declining plan rates and configurations are subject to change.
