Students with complete housing contracts, paid admission deposit, and complete registration for orientation by May 1 will receive their housing assignment in late June. Rooms will be allocated in contract number order based on the building and room type preferences provided by the student. Remember that if you mutually select a roommate on your housing contract, you and your roommate will receive an assignment at the later/worst of your two contract numbers. Assignment in a building and/or room type that is not your preference is not grounds for cancellation/termination of this contract.
Rental rates vary by building and room type. Our current rental rate chart is available on our website.
You will list building and room type preferences on your housing portal. Housing staff will assign you to your room. Your assignment information will be available on the housing portal in mid-June for Summer C, and late June for Fall/Spring We have many types of buildings, room types, and programs. You are encouraged to research options and call us with questions. Click here for more information about our residence halls.
Each residence hall may contain several room types. These are the most common room types available for new incoming students:
Townhouse with two double bedrooms. Two students are assigned to each bedroom, for a total of four students in the apartment. Each apartment has a full kitchen, one bathroom, and a shared living room area.
|Salley Suite Double with Shared Bath||
Two people are assigned to a bedroom that shares a common room and bathroom with another double room. The bathroom and common rooms are contained within the suite.

Students should complete their Fall/Spring housing contract as soon as possible.

If you mutually request a roommate, your roommate pair will be assigned a room based on the worst of your two contract numbers.
University Housing is committed to providing as many students as possible with the out-of-the-classroom learning and life-enriching experiences that come from living in student housing. As more students choose to attend FSU, the demand for student housing continues to increase. Due to the continued popularity of living on campus with both returning students and the incoming class, not every student can be assigned to a standard residence hall space immediately.
To house as many students as possible, University Housing has arranged for alternative spaces referred to as overflow housing spaces. Based on the number of standard spaces available and the date of receipt of your signed housing contract, you may be assigned to a space in overflow housing for the start of the semester.
University Housing has extensive experience with overflow housing, and steps have been taken to ensure that you will experience the same benefits of living in a residence hall as those who have been assigned to standard spaces.
University Housing has converted study rooms/lounges and other common areas to provide additional space to house students. These spaces have been equipped with furnishings similar to those in regular residential rooms; each resident will have a bunk bed and a hanging rack for clothes. In addition, a refrigerator/freezer and internet access will be provided. Most important, the residential life activities and support will be available to students in these spaces, just as they are to students in regular spaces.
As soon as a standard residential space becomes available, you will be assigned to a permanent living space on campus based on your priority number and contract submission date. We aim to reassign all students in overflow housing within the first few weeks of the semester, as cancellations are received. However, if we are unable to move all students out of these spaces, some may be converted to permanent spaces for the remainder of the semester. The occupancy of these converted rooms is similar to standard rooms of the same size. If an overflow room is converted to a permanent space, the hanging rack is replaced with an armoire, a desk and desk chair for each resident is placed in the room, and the bed may be replaced.
Rent for overflow housing is originally billed at the rental rate for a suite double. This allows students assigned to overflow to have a better sense of what their rental rate may be, especially since most students assigned to overflow housing will be reassigned before hall opening.
Students that are still assigned to overflow housing at hall opening will have their rent reduced to $15/day for each day they were assigned to overflow housing. Their rent for the remainder of the semester will be prorated based on the daily rate for their new room. This may result in a small refund after the student is reassigned if student's rent is paid in full before being reassigned.
When room assignments are made, residents are assigned to the room assignment that is as close to their preferences as possible based on their housing contract number. After students are assigned, they may request a reassignment.
The reassignment request website will open approximately one week after room assignments are released. Students that are assigned to permanent (not overflow) spaces may submit a reassignment request. If a vacancy occurs, University Housing staff will review reassignment requests on file in contract number order, from those with matching hall and room type preferences.
Prior to Hall Opening
After Hall Opening
Prior to hall opening, students requesting to change rooms with another student within the same hall, if they are assigned to the same room type, can submit their request online. Both students agreeing to change rooms will need to submit the request before any reassignment can be processed. Room change requests within the same hall and room type will be processed once the two students agreeing to change rooms have submitted their request online. Requests will remain on file until both students requesting to change rooms have submitted their request, or until approximately one week prior to the official hall opening date for the requested term.
NOTE: In most cases, requests to swap between Returning Residents and Incoming students cannot be honored. Requests to swap involving one LLC and one non-LLC student cannot be honored.
A mutual swap is not the way that two students that want to be roommates indicate their request to room together. If two students want to be roommates and neither of their roommates are interested in moving, the students must submit a regular reassignment request. In this case, University Housing will only be able to assist if 2 vacancies occur in a room together and both students that want to be roommates: 1) have the best/lowest contract numbers for that vacancy, and 2) both students requested the building and room type that match the vacancies.
Please follow the instructions below to submit a reassignment request unless you are trying to swap rooms with another student in a specific room or, after halls open, if you would like to change to a different room (excluding single rooms) within the same building.
Before Halls Open
If you no longer wish to be reassigned, you must cancel their request before a reassignment is made, as reassignments are completed before the halls open without students accepting the room change. You are NOT able to later cancel/decline your reassignment, as a new student will already have been assigned to the previous room. You can cancel your request by logging into your myHousing portal, and making your Reassignment Request "Inactive".
