The Experience

Life on the Saint Leo University campus is pure bliss with sunny Florida skies, palm trees, and plenty of green space. You'll enjoy the breathtaking views of Lake Jovita that can be seen from many of our residence halls. Classrooms, laboratories, and other essential facilities are all within a short walking distance from the residence halls or only a brief shuttle ride away.

All full-time University Campus students are required to live on campus. Exceptions are allowed for those students living and commuting from home, married students, veterans, non-traditional students, or senior students who have earned more than 90 credit hours. The university does not inspect, endorse, or recommend any off-campus properties or external housing. We think you will agree that the Saint Leo campus truly feels like home, and the friendships made in the residence halls at Saint Leo University will last a lifetime. Welcome!

The Office of Residence Life is open Monday through Friday 8:00am-5:00pm and is located on the first floor of Apartment Six. You can also reach us at or by calling 352-588-8268.
