Discover the Habitat That's Right for You

Not all sharks want to live in the shallow shoals, nor do they all thrive in the deep ocean. We all have preferences when it comes to our living environments, and over the years, Nova Southeastern University Housing has made efforts to provide a variety of on-campus housing options to match various needs.  

  • Perhaps you’ve been planning to share a room with your closest friends since the 4th grade. 
  • Maybe you’re a social butterfly planning to get involved in multiple student organizations. 
  • Or you’re in a challenging, high-stress program and need a relaxing, resort-style outdoor space to help unwind at the end of the day. 

It’s time to make NSU your home. Find your habitat today!

First-Year Students

Leo Goodwin Sr. Hall

Double- and triple-occupancy rooms for the budget-minded student with a number of communal study and living spaces.

The Commons

The suite life with an abundance of vibrant social spaces and quiet study areas for the student who values calm amid the hustle and bustle.

Cultural Living Center

One- and two-bedroom apartments centered around a unique green and open-air courtyard.

I love NSU’s community—I immediately felt like I belonged here because the people are so inclusive. I like living on campus because I am always able to meet new people and gain a holistic college experience. I love casually going to friends’ rooms throughout the day and spontaneously going to Starbucks at 3 a.m. to get a Caramel Frappuccino.
