University Village Apartments 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 an individual room in University Village Apartments are approximately 12' x 8'. 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 the Guide to Residential Living.
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.
Students must complete the Request for Animal-in-Residence Application on Housing Central. Continuing students must select animal-friendly housing options during the standard room self-selection process. This application will require the student to attach a photo, proof of one-year ownership, veterinary vaccination records, and answer several questions in relation to their ability to care for an animal while living on campus. If approved, the student will receive written notification to their stetson email and a displayable animal tag once they arrive on campus. Students looking to request accommodations for an emotional support animal (ESA), must complete the Request for Animal-in-Residence application and are required to additionally, upload a completed ESA Health Provider form.
