ON-CAMPUSHOUSING

Dear Wave Makers, Living on campus is one of the best ways to get connected and begin making waves here at Florida Atlantic University. Studies show that students who live on campus are more likely to succeed than those who don’t. They tend to have better grades, higher levels of overall satisfaction and better graduation rates than students who reside off campus. The Department of Housing and Residential Life wants to help you make your college experience the best and most successful it can be. We provide many options for you to choose from, whether you’re interested in suite-style rooms or apartment-style accommodations. We’re sure you’ll find a place on campus you can call “home.”

ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING & RESIDENTIAL LIFE Residence Hall Staff

All students residing in on-campus housing have access to student (Resident Assistants) and professional (Hall Coordinators and Resident Coordinators) staff members within their residential communities. Resident Assistants are upper-division students who have been specifically selected and trained to provide assistance and maintain a supportive academic atmosphere within the community. The full-time staff members are professionally trained and live on campus in the housing communities they supervise.

Freshman Residency Requirement The Department of Housing and Residential Life strives to educate our students outside of the classroom in order to provide them with a collegiate experience that better prepares them for a pluralistic society.

Our Mission Statement

The Department of Housing and Residential Life creates a seamless environment of living and learning in a safe and welcoming community. Through opportunities for leadership development, civic responsibility, self-exploration, and student involvement, we assist in building a lifelong connection between the student and the University.

Exemptions from this policy are made for students who: • Are 21 or older by the first day of class. • Reside with parent(s) or legal guardian(s) within a 30-mile radius of the Boca Raton campus. • Are married.

Our Vision

All full-time freshmen are required to reside in on-campus housing. Any freshman who wishes to receive an exemption must complete a Housing Exemption Request Form. This form is available at www.fau.edu/housing or by calling the Department of Housing and Residential Life at 561-2972880. Exemption requests must be received and approved before August 1 for Fall and December 1 for Spring. Freshman student residency will be verified for compliance at the start of each semester.

I absolutely love living on campus, it makes everything so easy. All my classes are so close and all my friends are in one place. I love living on campus most of all because it is so easy to meet new people and get involved in the FAU community. I wouldn’t change living on campus for anything. Taylor Hoff Chicago, IL

SOPHOMORE YEAR & FRESHMAN YEAR EXPERIENCE FRESHMAN YEAR EXPERIENCE Students who reside in any of our freshman residence hall communities will be able to interact with FAU and experience their freshman year in a unique way. They will have the opportunity to experience the following: • An academically enriched living area with computer lab access, study rooms, classrooms and strong faculty partnerships • Programming initiatives focused on the needs and interests of students going through their freshmen year transition to their new home away from home • A diverse community of individuals living together with other first year students • The ability to network with other first year students, Residential Life staff, and campus resources • Learn what it means to be part of the FAU family • Access to student and professional staff 24 hours a day, 7 days a week The relationships students form during their freshman year will create the foundation of their college experience while setting them up for future success. Research has shown us that students who reside on campus achieve higher GPAs, are more likely to graduate in four years and develop a deeper connection with the greater university community. It is our goal to enhance the first year experience by providing a safe, welcoming, and educational environment. We know that students who make the choice to live on campus “Love Where They Live”.

SOPHOMORE YEAR EXPERIENCE The Second Year Experience (SYE) is a partnership with Academic Affairs and Student Affairs. The second year of college brings about new and exciting challenges for students. They begin to take on added responsibilities and make decisions that will affect the rest of their lives. Through the SOaring OWL Program, second-year students will build on the career, personal and academic foundations they established during their first year of college. Fundamental to this process is the continued development wtih advisors, recognition of self and wellbeing, and advancement of learning and leadership. Participants in the SOaring OWL Program will reside in a cohort within Innovation Village Apartments South (IVAS), where many of the program’s planned activities will be offered. Information sessions, geared to educate freshmen about the SOaring OWL Program, are offered in late fall.

NATIONAL RESIDENCE HALL HONORARY

NRHH is a premiere honorary organization dedicated to recognizing the top 1% of leaders living in the residence hall, NRHH acknowledges those leaders who always go above and beyond the call of duty making their collegiate experience living in the residence hall more than living in a “dorm.” NRHH is a national organization founded on the four primary principles of scholastics, service, recognition, and leadership. The FAU Chapter of NRHH strives to crete opportunities for our members to excel in these areas and connect with like-minded students.

Hello Future NRHH-ers! My name is Taylor Eljaua; I am a senior at FAU working toward my Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art. I am a Resident Assistant in Heritage Park Towers and I also serve as the National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) President. I have been involved with NRHH since my third year here at FAU. Prior to joining NRHH I have held other leadership roles throughout the Department of Housing. My freshman and sophomore year I was involved in community council in my hall and I also became a Student Assistant for the University Village Apartments. My junior year, I applied for NRHH and was inducted in the Fall of 2011. Being involved in NRHH has been my favorite leadership role that I have been a part of to date. It has really helped me to grow and develop as a leader, an individual, as a student and as a role model. NRHH has helped me make some great friends too. It’s a close-knit group of people who WANT to see me succeed! My grades have gone up since joining, more opportunities to get involved have been presented to me, and stronger links have been formed! If there was one thing that I would urge you to do as you all embark on a new year here at FAU, it would be to GET INVOLVED! My college experience would not be the same with out my on campus involvement! I would not have the friends I have nor the opportunities I have now if it wasn’t for my involvement. NRHH is a great place to get involved! We would love to see all of you apply come this fall! Thank you, Taylor Eljaua NRHH President

ON-CAMPUS DINING & CAMPUS MAP

FREQUENTLY ASKED Q I HAVE THE FLORIDA PRE-PAID “DORMITORY PLAN.” WHAT DOES THIS MEAN AT FAU?

When you request a residence hall, you will be given a priority assignment, provided the completed Housing Contract is returned by May 1. The “Dormitory Plan” portion of the Florida Pre-Paid College Program covers only the rate for our least expensive double room in Glades Park Towers or Heritage Park Towers. You may “upgrade” your requested preferences, but you are responsible for paying any additional costs. You must indicate on your Housing Contract that you are a participant in this plan to get a priority assignment. The “Dormitory Plan” will not cover the $300 deposit.

I HAVE A HEALTH AND/OR MEDICAL CONDITION AND NEED TO MAKE A SPECIAL REQUEST. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Students who have a health and/or medical condition that requires special accommodation or consideration in the room assignment process must contact and register with the Office for Students with Disabilities (OSD). The specific nature of your health and/or medical condition must be identified so we can work with you to accomodate your needs. Specific written documentation will be requested from you and your physician or diagnostician to support the request. OSD staff will evaluate the documentation and make recommendations to the Housing Office regarding appropriate modifications/assignments required to accommodate your specific needs. The process of review does take some time. The Department of Housing and Residential Life is not able to honor requests for special accommodations without an evaluation from OSD staff, and you need to complete the Housing Contract and OSD paperwork prior to May 1 for fall or November 1 for spring.

WHAT TYPE OF FURNITURE IS PROVIDED BY THE SCHOOL?

Every room on campus is provided with a bed (extra-long twin 36” x 80” in all buildings except Innovation Village North and South which come with standard full-size beds), desk, desk chair, and dresser in every student room. Indian River Towers, University Village Apartments, and Innovation Village Apartments also have furnishings provided in the common areas.

IS INTERNET PROVIDED?

Yes, all residence hall rooms and apartments come with Internet service, known as ResNet. ResNet is the high-speed computer network for the FAU residential student community. It is a shared resource, available in all on-campus housing locations. Since the campus network is a shared resource, actual transmission speed from a given workstation will vary depending upon network traffic load. You are provided with your own data port, and in most places within the residence halls, you will be able to access the network wirelessly.

QUESTIONS AM I ALLOWED TO BRING PETS TO MY ROOM?

The only pets allowed are fish kept in tanks that are no larger than 10 gallons. All other pets are prohibited. You are responsible for maintaining the tanks and are responsible for any and all damages caused by the keeping of fish or any unauthorized pets. Any cost associated with the possession of an unauthorized pet will be charged to the responsible resident(s) or to all residents of the room/apartment (e.g., damaged furniture, cleaning, pest control, etc.).

No, the painting of resident rooms, suite areas, or common areas is prohibited.

Yes, you are permitted to remain during Thanksgiving break, winter break and spring break. Staff coverage may be limited during these periods. A separate contract is required for the Summer term.

ARE MY PERSONAL BELONGINGS INSURED BY THE UNIVERSITY?

The University is not responsible for the loss of or damage caused to personal belongings of residents living in the residence halls or on-campus apartments. It is strongly suggested that residents check their parent(s)’ homeowners’ insurance policy for coverage, or purchase renters insurance. Two companies that specialize in renters insurance for college students are: GradGuard Renters Insurance (www.gradguard.com/renters) or National Student Services Incorporated (www.nssinc.com).

MAY RESIDENTS HAVE GUESTS IN THEIR ROOMS, AND CAN THEY STAY OVERNIGHT? Residents may have guests in their room only with prior approval from their roommate/suitemate(s). All overnight guests (any guests present between midnight and 7:30 a.m.) must be registered with the Area Office or RA on Duty by 10 PM. Hosts may have overnight guests for up to 15 nights per semester with prior approval of roommate/suitemate(s). Hosts may have a maximum of two overnight guests at any one time, and guests can stay for a maximum of three consecutive nights. Hosts are responsible for the behavior of their guests at all times.
