Moving to Saint Leo

We are thrilled to welcome you to the Saint Leo community!

When Do the Residence Halls Open for Spring 2015?

For new domestic incoming students, the halls will open on Saturday, January 10, 2015. For new international students, the residence halls will open on Friday, January 9, 2015.

NOTE: This information is applicable for students entering Saint Leo University beginning in the Spring 2015 semester. Information for students entering in the Fall 2015 semester will be posted here beginning in March.

How Do I Choose a Roommate?

Roommates are either selected or assigned through the online Housing Selection system available at www.saintleo.edu/residence. After you complete your Housing Application, be sure to complete the Roommate Matching questionnaire and begin your search within the Roommate Matching tool. You can be as specific as sharing passcodes and matching yourself with another roommate, or you can allow Residence Life to assign someone to you based upon your responses to the questionnaire.

Please understand that residence hall and roommate assignments for the upcoming semester are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. While every effort will be made to accommodate your request, assignments cannot be guaranteed.

If you require specific housing accommodations, please contact the Office of Disability Services to place a formal request for ADA accommodations. You may contact their office at (352) 588-8464 or via email at christine.georgallis@saintleo.edu.

If you have any questions/concerns regarding housing, please contact the Office of Residence Life at (352) 588-8268 or via email at residence.life@saintleo.edu.
