On & Off Campus Housing

On Campus Housing

Rollins College’s College of Arts & Sciences and Crummer Graduate School of Business offer on-campus housing for students.  Those students who have less than 60 credit hours are required to live on-campus.  There are a variety of housing options for on-campus living for A & S students.  They include traditional dormitory-style residence halls with single, double, and triple rooms and apartment-style residences. 

For A & S, the Office of Residential Life manages the operations of all on-campus living.  For detailed information on the facilities available as well as their rates, please contact the Office of Residential Life (407) 646-2649

For Crummer students, please contact the EAMBA Office at (407) 628-6374.

Students studying at the Hamilton Holt School will need to secure their own housing off-campus.
