Welcome to On-Campus Living!

NSU Residential Life and Housing is committed to fostering student success and a university community. You have made the right decision to inquire about living on campus at Nova Southeastern University: Home of the Sharks! You are perhaps considering your options when it comes to choosing a college, but most importantly, you are probably wondering why you should live on campus.

Undergraduate housing for both new and returning NSU students is currently full and all housing contracts are not being accepted. We encourage all NSU Sharks to visit our Off Campus Housing resources and our NSU Realtor, Jill Sivert to identify alternative housing plans this academic year. 

Please note that any undergraduate student assigned during the academic year, must wait until they are approved by Enrollment Student Services (ESS) to check into their fall 2021 assignment. A check in email will has been sent to students who are assigned, detailing check in instructions after they have been cleared by ESS.

Residential Life and Housing Guides

Hello Shark Resident!

I hope that you are remaining safe and healthy during this time.

These are challenging and uncertain times and we respect how important it is for you and your family to make the best decisions about your education and living plans for the upcoming 2021-2022 Academic Year. The Office of Residential Life and Housing is excited to welcome you back to housing and eager to help you continue your academic journey. As such, we want to maintain our transparency and responsibility in bringing relevant policies and arrangements to your attention this Winter 2021 semester, so you can make the best choices for your return to campus this fall.

As you all may know, NSU continues to experience historic growth even during this unprecedented time of COVID-19.

Many of you are excited for this year’s housing selection process, inclusive of housing rates and the options that will be available for you to select. In recent meetings with our Executive Leadership, President Hanbury has made clear our commitment to ensuring first year and sophomore students are able to reside on our main NSU campus. Conversely, given the success of our partnership with University Pointe, we are continuing our relationship this fall, providing this exclusive opportunity for our returning juniors and seniors to reside within this community. 

Housing Contracts for 2021-2022 Academic Year will be available on this Monday, March 29th, 2021 at 9am EST on our website’s Housing Contract Page. Summer 2021 housing contracts will also be available on Monday, March 29th, 2021 at 9am EST.

NSU is currently finalizing the locations of all the UPointe spaces we will have available. We will be offering Juniors and Seniors who have 4+ terms lived on the opportunity to complete the UPointe Preference Form via the student housing portal, which will be available starting on Monday, April 5th, 2021 at 9am. This form is where Juniors and Seniors who have 4+ terms lived on will be able to tell us their top 3 UPointe apartment preferences and with whom they wish to be assigned with at UPointe. The UPointe Preference Form will go live and be accessible only to Juniors and Seniors who have 4+ terms lived on and who submitted their 2021-2022 Undergraduate Housing Contract by the April 1st deadline. This preference form will be due by Friday, April 9th, 2021 at 9am. Once the University has finalized all UPointe spaces, we will notify all students who submitted the UPointe Preference Form about when they can expect to be assigned to UPointe for the 2021-2022 Academic Year.

Please take some time to review our returning resident page, to familiarize yourself with your housing self-selection process. As we await final approval, please review our anticipated 2021-2022 room rates page to see what types of rooms we will have available next year and their costs. Similar to last year, you will be able to self-select your room and roommates if you submit your housing contact by the returning resident deadline of April 1st, 2021 at 5pm EST. Also, similar to last year’s process, students with the most semester (terms) lived on campus, will able to self-select their rooms, before students with the least amount of terms lived on. Please see the attached flyer for the full 2021-2022 Returning Student Self-Selection process details.

As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Office of Residential Life and Housing via email at or by phone at (954)-262-7052.
