University 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. NSU’s residence halls enhance your educational experience by providing all the comforts and conveniences you need to succeed. Recent studies demonstrate that students who live in campus housing have higher graduation rates, higher GPAs and report greater satisfaction with their collegiate experience.
Nova Southeastern University offers on-campus housing to undergraduate students. Students that have over 48 credits or who are 20 years of age or older are not required to reside in our residence halls and University Housing cannot guarantee on-campus housing for all students that request it. University Housing aims to accommodate all new incoming students who request housing, and they will be assigned on a space-available basis. Please note that on-campus housing assignments are impacted by the housing contract submission date. New students should submit their housing contracts immediately after deciding to attend NSU.
Please note, unfortunately, due to the unprecedented high demand for University Housing, we have reached full capacity. Therefore, please note that if you submit a 2022-2023 housing contract now, you will automatically be placed on a waitlist, and your assignment will be based on the next available space.
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:
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 20 or married, you have the option to move into the apartments or live off-campus.
University Housing is excited to welcome back all returning students and incoming first-year students to our communities. Students will be assigned a check-in date during the week of Monday, August 15th through Friday, August 19th. Some students have been assigned a date of Saturday, August 13th.
A staggered check-in process is necessary to provide the best service and care to our students as well as to prevent overcrowding. Each student will be assigned a check-in day and time throughout the week. Check-In times will range from 9:00am – 5:00pm during the days listed above. The earliest date any student will be permitted to check-in is Saturday, August 13th, for students in special programs and/or NCAA pre-season athletes. There is no check-in on Sunday, August 14th as our office will be closed. Students that arrive prior to their assigned check-in date or time WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO CHECK-IN! This is for your safety.
Students received their check-in day and time to their NSU email address on Wednesday, June 1, 2022.
