New Graduate Student Housing

The University of Tampa offers on campus housing to new full-time graduate students (enrolled in at least 8 credit hours each semester). Students are encouraged to submit their housing applications prior to the May 1 deadline for fall, and Oct. 1 for spring.

A $500 admissions deposit is required prior to submitting a housing application. Students who initially paid the $300 deposit can pay the remaining $200 on SpartanWeb. Information is available on SpartanWeb; under the applicant tab click new student housing on the left. After the housing deposit is paid, the application will be available in Residence by Symplicity.

Please be sure to answer all housing application questions. The Office of Residence Life uses this information to make room assignments. Graduate students and students age 23 and older may be assignwed to Urso Hall. Studio apartment-style living is enhanced with programs and activities designed especially for older students. Space is limited and new students are assigned based on their completed housing application date.

New student assignments are made based on completed housing application dates. Room assignments are sent in mid-July for the fall semester and the third week of December for the spring semester. After assignments are made, students will not be able to make changes until the open room change period after the third week of the semester.

Students with special medical needs must submit documentation to Residence Life from a physician before the housing deadline or May 1 for fall and Oct. 1 for spring. Documents will be reviewed by a health consultant. If documentation is received after the deadline, students may not be reassigned until open room change.

Students interested in being roommates must mutually request each other on their housing applications. The University reserves the right to change or cancel a room assignment if it is found to be in the best interest of the student or the University.

The University of Tampa does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, creed, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status in the recruitment, admission and advancement of students, or in the recruitment, employment and advancement of faculty and staff, or in the design and operation of any of its programs and activities.
