4 Steps to Living on Campus
Step 1: Complete the housing Application
Complete the housing application in the Housing Portal.
All Students residing in the Sarasota-Manatee Residence Hall may be required to purchase a meal plan. More information on meal plan options can be found at USF Dining.
Step 2: Submit the Application Fee
Submit your $50 application fee.
This fee will be billed to your OASIS student account one business day after you complete the housing application. Please note, your admission deposit does not pay the $50 housing application fee. You will need to make a separate payment for the housing application fee. Learn how to make a housing payment in OASIS.
Step 3: Complete your Orientation Reservation
New USF students will need to reserve and pay for an orientation session. Orientation sessions will go live in Spring 2024. For more information, click here.
