Housing Selection

Welcome to the 2018-2019 Housing Selection Process! All housing selection processes will be completed through our online RESIDENCE system by Symplicity. All Saint Leo University residential students will complete their housing application and room selection by logging into their RESIDENCE account at www.saintleo.edu/residence. Your log in information will be as follows:

  • Username: firstname.lastname@email.saintleo.edu
    Password: is set as your Saint Leo email password



If you are new to Saint Leo University housing, there are a few things to know before logging into RESIDENCE for the first time. To access your new RESIDENCE online account you will first need to set up your Saint Leo University email account. You can do this by logging into your student portal account at https://my.saintleo.edu. Please make sure that your passwords are strong (at least 8 to 10 characters and include number(s)/symbols). Please note that newly admitted students will have to wait a minimum of 48 hours from the time of their deposit before they can access the RESIDENCE system.
