Residence Life at The University of Tampa

The mission of the Office of Residence Life is to foster an inclusive residential community and dynamic learning experiences that promote student development and academic success.

The University of Tampa offers on-campus housing to new undergraduate students, new graduate students and continuing students. Students are not required to reside in on-campus residence halls and the Office of Residence Life cannot guarantee on-campus housing for all students. The University aims to accommodate all new and continuing students who request housing, most new UT students will be assigned to on-campus housing on a space-available basis. Please note that on-campus housing assignments are impacted by the housing application date and roommate requests. New students should submit their housing applications soon after deciding to attend UT.

The University of Tampa's residence halls enhance your educational experience by providing all the comforts and conveniences you need to succeed. Recent studies demonstrate that students who live in campus housing have higher graduation rates, higher GPAs and report greater satisfaction with their collegiate experience.

We encourage students to request needs directly to The Office of Residence Life versus families and third parties, in alignment with our family communication and customer service philosophies.
