About Stetson and Our Community

Balance is important to our employees' personal and professional lives. The active yet relaxing Florida lifestyle is an ideal counterpoint to the rigors of working in a dynamic educational institution.

The main campus of Stetson University College of Law is located in a beautiful, Spanish-Mediterranean complex originally designed as a 1920s resort hotel. The local community offers a full complement of cultural and social events. We have an on-site fitness center and swimming pool. We also have courts for tennis, volleyball and basketball, and fields for football and softball. Stetson's Tampa Law Center is located at the entrance of downtown Tampa and overlooks the Hillsborough River.

As part of the exciting metropolitan area of greater Tampa Bay, Stetson offers you access to one of Florida's most vibrant business and legal communities. The St. Petersburg/Gulfport area boasts magnificent beaches, palm-lined boulevards and sunshine throughout the year. Relax to live jazz at one of the many beachfront or downtown restaurants and clubs. Refine your tennis stroke or golf swing. Attend a spring training game. Or spend a day on cultural pursuits at the Museum of Fine Arts or Salvador Dali museum in St. Petersburg.

Tampa offers Busch Gardens theme park and animal preserve, the Florida Aquarium, and the nightlife of historic Ybor City and Channelside. The Tampa Bay area also is rich in parks, biking paths, playing fields, fishing piers, boating, shopping, marinas and golf courses. The temperate climate allows you to enjoy these activities year round.
