Returner Room Selection

Welcome, current Shark Residents!  It is important for each of you to understand the details and steps related to the room selection process.  It is particularly important that you make yourself aware of the roommate matching system, as this will play a role in your room selection start time.  Please review the information below.

NSU Residency Requirement

Nova Southeastern University requires all undergraduate day students carrying 0-48 credit hours of study to live on campus unless one or more 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, or Palm Beach counties).
  • You are a veteran or active United States military personnel.

If you meet one 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 residential apartments depending on availability or to live off campus.
