The Quiet Corridor
This community brings together students who prefer a quiet, studious environment. These students set their own community standards in regards to quiet hours and use of the study lounge. These students create a community of engaged, academically focused students.
The Quiet Corridor is offered in both Goodwin Hall and the Commons Residence Hall. The members of the community in the Commons will assist with mentorship of the members of the community in Goodwin Hall.
Leadership Theme Community
The “L.E.A.D.” (Leading Empowering Aspiring Developing) community brings together leaders from areas such as the executive board of clubs and organizations, Student Government, Leadership Roundtable Scholars, the LEAD 3000 class and members of the Leadership certificate program to learn more about themselves as leaders and to service the campus community with their leadership skills.
This community will support the mission of the Leadership Development Program to develop leaders who can effectively lead themselves, their peers, and their organizations as students, professionals and citizens. LEAD 1 is a freshman community of leaders who live in the Commons and LEAD 2 is upperclass community of leaders who mentor the members of LEAD 1.
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. Must be an active member of the NSU Greek system to live in the Greek Village.
All undergraduate students living in The Commons, regardless of credit hours, must purchase a mandatory declining balance plan. The minimum amount a resident can apply to their NSU ID Card is $1,300 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.
