Each residence hall has a Residence Hall Director (R.D.), a full-time, non-student staff member who lives in the hall and supervises the overall operation of the building, including leadership development, and student conduct. Resident Assistants (R.A.s) are students who live on each floor, helping to develop and ensure a sense of community among the residents.
How We Assign Housing Locations
Since USF accepts applications on a rolling basis, we also accept Housing Contracts on a rolling basis. For incoming freshmen and transfer students to have the best opportunity to secure the housing of their preference, their Housing Contract should be received by our office around June 15. Incoming freshmen and transfer students mark their building preferences on their Housing Contract. In order to accommodate our entire residential population, it is impossible to give everyone their first choice.
We ask that students be open-minded and remember that we have an open room-switch period two weeks after classes begin and at the semester break.
