Study and Play in Year-Round Beach Weather

If you’re a new or first-year student interested in apartment-style living, the Cultural Living Center (CLC) is the hall for you. Design your space the way you like with your single or shared double room. Invite friends over for movie night in your living room or cook something that isn’t ramen in your fully equipped kitchen.

At the CLC, you’ll experience all the advantages and amenities of apartment living. Soak in the sun and beautiful Florida weather with an open-air courtyard and wrap-around balcony walkways. Easily greet your neighbors and meet your peers with a layout that promotes community while enjoying the sunshine and palm trees.

Meal Plan Requirement

As an on-campus resident, you will automatically be enrolled in one of two Declining Balance (DB) meal plans each semester. Apartments with full kitchens require a lower Declining Balance plan than those without— such as Leo Goodwin Sr. and The Commons.

Note: Your Account Billing Statement will list your meal plan as Declining Balance.

What is Declining Balance?

All students living in on-campus housing are enrolled in a mandatory declining balance (DB) meal plan for the Fall and Winter semesters.

Your Declining Balance plan is loaded onto your Shark Card and works like a debit card that can be used at any on-campus Shark Dining location. All DB meal plan transactions are tax-free and any remaining balance at the end of the Fall Semester will roll over to the Winter Semester. Any remaining balance at the end of the Winter Semester will expire, and no longer be available.
