Emily Hall

Built in 1955, Emily Hall is named after Emily Edmunds, the wife of Stetson's fourth president, J. Ollie Edmunds. Emily Hall houses residents in shared-occupancy rooms with suite-style bathrooms. Emily Hall has resident assistants on every floor that help students by providing opportunities to develop deep and meaningful relationships not just with their roommates, but with members of the entire building. Located on the third floor main is the 24-hour quiet community. Residents who live in this community have a need for an environment that is created to focus on serious academic study, light sleepers, or those with non-traditional sleep schedules. Selected individuals will be responsible to agree to the 24-Hour Quiet Agreement. Emily is located across the parking lot from Chaudoin Hall and directly across the street from University Hall.

Emily Hall FAQ

Love where you live. Live where you learn. Discover a lifestyle that keeps you closer to the things happening on campus: friends, classes, dining and boundless opportunities. Students who live on campus have greater opportunities to become involved not only in student organizations across campus but with their residence hall and the people living with them. There is evidence showing that students living on campus have a higher academic achievement, stay in school until graduation at higher rates and are generally more satisfied with their college experience. Recognizing this evidence, Stetson University requires all undergraduate students with less than 90 earned credit hours to live on campus. There are some exceptions to this requirement and this information is outlined in the Residency Exemption.

The dimensions of rooms in Emily Hall are 14' x 11'. Students can find more information about floor plans and layouts in Housing Central. They should go to the "More" tab and then click "Documents."


As a part of the Stetson residential community, we have compiled a recommended packing list of items we suggest you bring and those that you leave at home. This list is not meant to be all-inclusive, but instead to give you a good idea as to what is and isn't allowed. The list is divided into different areas to help you consider all the items you may want to bring with you. We encourage you to speak with your roommate, prior to moving in, about what each of you can bring to the room due to space and economic considerations. Learn more about our residential policies in our current student website's policy section.


Stetson University has a centralized, full-service post office. All undergraduate students who live on campus are automatically assigned a campus mailbox with a specific unit number. John B. Stetson / 421 N. Woodland Blvd. / Unit #### / DeLand, FL 32723. The #### is your four-digit mailbox/unit number. To avoid delays, make sure to put the mailbox number on all incoming mail and packages.

We recognize that some residential environments and configurations may not be completely accessible to all students. Students who are seeking additional consideration in the housing assignment process or reasonable requests for modifications to their housing assignment must submit a Request for ADA/Accommodation. Learn more about our ADA accommodations process!
