Residence Life


Our Mission
The Office of Residence Life empowers students to develop a safe and inclusive living experience and promotes a thriving community of holistic student learning.

The Experience
Life on the Saint Leo University campus is pure bliss with sunny Florida skies, palm trees, and plenty of green space across our 153 acres. You'll enjoy the breathtaking views of Lake Jovita and the open green spaces throughout our campus 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 via landscaped, oak tree-lined paths.

Our live-in Residence Life staff team includes full time professional staff members, Graduate Assistants (GAs) and graduate/undergraduate Resident Assistant Directors (RADs) and Resident Assistants (RAs). The residence hall staff works together to provide services, programs, and activities that connect students in friendship and fun.

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 over 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 a 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.
