The Stetson University College of Law libraries in Gulfport and Tampa support the research efforts of students, faculty, and staff. 

The libraries are a significant part of the Stetson University College of Law. The combined collections of statutes, court reports, journals and treatises, in a variety of formats, is above the median size of academic law libraries in the United States. The facilities and collections have been enhanced by major gifts by alumni and friends.

The libraries feature extensive electronic resources, abundant study space for individuals and small groups, and both wireless and network internet access.
