Typically, if you submit your contract, you will receive an automated email confirming the submission within a minute. However, in the rare case that you do not receive the email, you can always count on receiving a confirmation email from firstname.lastname@example.org between 1-2 business days after submitting your contract. Please feel to contact us at (954) 262-7052 or email us at email@example.com with any questions or concerns about our assignments process.
It is your responsibility to ensure/confirm that your housing application submission was successful.
The majority of incoming first-year students will end up living in Leo Goodwin Sr. Residence Hall, The Commons, or the Cultural Living Center (CLC). Incoming students in the Razor's Edge programs will live in The Commons on the 3rd floor with their cohort.
All current undergraduate residents who have under 59 credits (i.e. Sophomores) by the end of the Winter 2022 semester will reside in Mako Hall and FFV.
Undergraduate students who will have over 59 credits (i.e. Juniors and Seniors) by the end of the Winter 2022 semester will reside in UPointe and Rolling Hills Buildings A & C
Undergraduate students who are 20 years of age or older may live in upper-class apartments depending on space availability. Housing is not required or guaranteed for students who are 20 years of age or older.
Due to yearly changes in occupancy, students may not retain their current housing assignments between academic years.
ALL undergraduate students who want to be able to select their own roommates during our self-selection process must:
The short answer is “no.” During the self-selection process, a suite will be locked for a few minutes while a student is selecting their bedroom. Students wishing to live together should go through the roommate selection process.
Please note that the roommate selection process starts after they receive their self-selection day and time email, after submitting their housing contract by their contract deadline.
You will not need to resubmit a $500 deposit each year, as we hold onto your original deposit until you choose to leave housing altogether. When you submit a new contract, our system will see that you have a deposit on file and should not ask you to submit another one.
All our housing assignments are decided on a space-available basis. As all students will be participating in a self-selection process this year, you may select a single room for yourself if there are any available at the time you try to select your room. If there are no more singles during this process, it means we do not have any available and you will need to self-select a space. After selecting a space, you can add yourself to a waitlist for your desired room type.
Every single student who wishes to live on campus needs to submit a housing contract, Razor’s Edge included. Razor's Edge first years can only live with other Razor's Edge first years in the Commons. Razor's Edge sophomores can only live with other Razor's Edge sophomores in Mako Hall.
Razor's Edge first years must live in the Commons Residence Hall and Razor Edge Sophomores must live in Mako Hall.
Please check out our Room Rates page for more information about housing costs.
Undergraduate students wishing to reside on campus for the Summer semester must complete a separate Summer Housing Contract for that term. University Housing will then assign you to a space in the apartment area(s) designated for summer housing. Students living on campus during the summer are expected to be available to move from their Winter semester assignment to their summer assignment during the first few weeks of the summer housing term, and from their summer assignment to their Fall semester assignment during the weeks following the conclusion of the summer housing term. Students who are not available during these times may face additional charges to have their items moved/removed. Students assigned to summer housing will receive their summer assignment email with their check-in instructions prior to checking in. This process will vary from student to student due to the small amount of summer residents anticipated. Summer residents must follow the specific instructions given to them by University Housing.
Residents in Leo Goodwin and The Commons will have a $1,660 mandatory meal plan per semester. Residents in Mako Hall, FFV, CLC, and Rolling Hills will have a mandatory $470 meal plan per semester. Please keep in mind that Dining Services and meal plans are managed by Nova Southeastern University Business Services and that these rates are subject to change from year to year. To learn more about changes in meal plans please contact Business Services at 954-262-8839.
A student’s mandatory declining-balance plan rolls over from the fall semester to the winter semester, but expires at the end of the winter semester. There are no mandatory meal plans required or provided during the summer term.
In our apartments (Mako Hall, FFV, CLC, and Rolling Hills), students are provided with a full-sized refrigerator and a stove/oven. Only Mako Hall has in-unit dishwashers and clothes washers & dryers. The rooms and suites in Leo Goodwin and The Commons do not come with any kitchen appliances. Students may bring microwaves up to 900 watts, mini-fridges up to 4.0 cubic feet, and any other appliance that does not have an external heating system. This means something like a Keurig is allowed, but something like a hot plate is prohibited.
All of our beds in Leo Goodwin, The Commons, FFV, CLC, and Rolling Hills Building C Quad rooms require Twin Extra Long (Twin XL) bedsheets. The mattress dimensions are 39 x 80 inches.

AFTER you have created your account and submitted your required immunizations, you may log back into your account to check the status of your immunizations by going to: https://login.castlebranch.com/login. It is important to note that the student is required to confirm if their immunizations have been approved by the specialists at CastleBranch.

Nova Southeastern University has a residency requirement for all undergraduate day-time students entering an academic year with fewer than 49 credit hours, except for in the following cases:
At this point in time, we do not have any kind of family housing and do not allow children to live on campus.
These questions all have different answers depending on the year and depending on each individual situation. We have a number of camps and conferences on campus each summer, and many of our summer move–over dates are dependent on the dates and locations of these groups. Additionally, our summer housing is located in our upper class apartments, many of which will not become fully available until after graduation.
In general, move-over into summer housing occurs within the first week of the summer housing term and move-over from summer housing into fall housing occurs either toward the end of the summer housing term or shortly after. If you currently live on campus, will live on campus during the summer, and will live on campus in the fall, you will never be completely without housing. We try to communicate specific move-in details at the end of the winter term and provide move fall move instruction in the summer term via email.
Unfortunately, if a student is not registered for classes, they will not be able to reside in on-campus housing. If a student is only registered for courses for the first eight weeks of a semester, they will not be able to live on campus for the second eight weeks unless they register for more classes. The same applies to students who are only registered for the second eight weeks of classes within a semester.
The only exception to this rule is undergraduate housing for the summer term. An undergraduate student may live on campus during the summer without being registered for summer courses, provided they are registered for courses the following fall semester.
