Where will I stay?

FSU-LEAP students will stay in New Residence Hall for the duration of the program.

New Residence Hall is a three story residence hall located on the east side of campus. The hall can accommodate up to 186 residents in suite style living arrangements. Each suite contains four double occupancy bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a living room. Each suite in New Residence Hall has its own unique personality and charisma.

The lobby of New Residence Hall is oversized with space to study, access the internet, watch television, or enjoy the view of its spacious courtyard and enclosed residence hall area. This hall also hosts a fitness center with several modern fitness machines, workout equipment, and student staff on duty who are trained to help residents meet their fitness and health goals.

The room you live in during LEAP will be your room for the fall semester. You will not need to remove your belongings from your room when LEAP ends. Keeping that in mind, you are welcome to bring almost anything to make your room comfortable, including rugs, refrigerators, DVD players, dishes, computers, lamps, and microwaves.

FSU-LEAP students must follow all Residence Life rules and regulations. Violation of Residence Life regulations may result in dismissal from the program.
