Residential Life & Student Living

Get the full Phoenix experience by living on campus! The residential student experience is a critical component for the success of our campus and for many of our students at Florida Poly.
Florida Poly’s Department of Residential Life oversees residence hall programming and initiatives, supervision of resident assistants (student employees), resident emergency and crisis response, and student conduct to offer students a living-learning environment that supports and promotes leadership, collaboration, innovation, adaptability, and development.

The department's goal is to provide students living in university housing with safe, well-maintained facilities, and programs that are conducive to student learning and success.

Student Living handles the leasing and maintenance for the on-campus residence halls. The buildings are owned by Vestcor Communities.

Residence Halls

Our residence halls are steps away from the main classrooms and share similar amenities including study lounges, computer centers, an entertainment room with billiards and ping pong, gaming areas and more. 

Residence Hall I

From high-speed, wireless Internet access to a fitness facility and game room, the 90,000-square-foot Residence Hall I is designed with the modern student in mind. Comfortable, secure and fully furnished, the three- and four-bedroom suites have the latest technology and accommodations to make learning and living outside the classroom comfortable and easy. There are two bathrooms per four-person suite.

Residence Hall II

The majority of Residence Hall II is made up of “Semi Suites,” two double bedrooms furnished with two twin beds, a desk and chair, sharing a common bathroom. It was designed with a more traditional residence hall feel and features twice as much communal space as Residence Hall I, encouraging students to leave their rooms and create their own social hub.
