New College of Florida and our Board of Trustees value our residential requirement and firmly believes that it is an essential part of our academic experience. It is so highly valued that we require our students to reside on campus. By living on campus, you can be fully engaged in student life while enjoying a strong sense of camaraderie and community. The integration of our academic component and our residential experience strengthen the overall educational and social development of our community members. As you get ready to move onto campus, we just want to take a moment to stress how important and valued this experience is for our student body. There is a great deal of research that reveals that students who live on campus are academically more successful and socially more integrated and have a higher retention rate than nonresidential students.
Most first-year students are assigned rooms in the Pei Residence Halls. Upper-class students can choose to live in a variety of apartment-style, lodge-style, or traditional dormitory accommodations.Learn about our residence halls
