The dormitory rooms are located on the campus grounds surrounding the beautiful main courtyard area and are only a few short steps from the classroom building. The dorms are located in five different buildings and on 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors.
The Stetson Law dorm rooms are designated as single occupancy spaces and are not co-ed spaces. If you reside in a campus dorm room, an occasional overnight guest(s) MAY be permitted with advance written notice to the Assistant Director of Residential Life. Permission must be requested and granted for each guest visit. The adjoining suite mate must also agree to this accommodation. Please review Over Night Guest Policy.
Additionally, in the five dorm rooms that have private bath spaces permission must be requested before an overnight guest can stay in the dorm room. In either situation the guest stay is limited to one overnight stay or a period of no more than 24 hours. Extra bedding requests such as cots will NOT be provided.
For visiting guest of those who reside in Stetson-owned houses and apartments, permission from the Office of Residential Life should still be requested in advance of the guest(s) visit.
Any guest(s) using the campus amenities such as the fitness center, swimming pool or the ball courts will need to be accompanied by the student, faculty or staff member at all times.
For guest(s) visiting for more than 24 hours, accommodations may be available in one of the Stetson-owned campus suites or furnished apartments. Some fees may apply and space may be limited. Sorry, no pets.
Stetson Law maintains a list of hotels in the area that offer discounts to Stetson students and their families. Visit Tampa Bay Hotels for more information.
The walls are made of plaster and we ask that no nail holes or other penetrations be made to the walls. Damage to walls could result in forfeiture of your security deposit. There is a fabric material on a designated wall in the room. Please use this surface when hanging or tacking things on the wall.
A duplex electrical outlet next to the bed has one side connected to a switch adjacent to the entry door. The other is not switched and would be used where continuous power is needed for a clock, radio, etc.
Under the bookshelf that is above the desk, there is a fluorescent task light for illuminating the surface of the desk. On the wall under the desk there is an outlet for a telephone.
The desk has a specially designed drawer for a computer keyboard and all shelving has a grommet for running wires vertically.
Each room has a ceiling fan and an overhead light, each of which is operated separately. These are on a motion sensor that automatically shuts the lights and fan off when the room is unoccupied. The motion sensor should be kept in the on position. The motion sensor device is located next to the front door.
There is a thermostat in each dorm room to control a comfortable setting for heating and cooling. Use the MODE button to change from heat to cooling mode, and wait for the control program to scroll before changing temperature settings. Use the up and down arrows on the thermostat to control the desired room temperature. The AUTO fan is part of the HVAC system and it will operate at all times, while in heat or in cooling mode.
With the exception of four rooms designed for students with special medical needs, all rooms share a bathroom with an adjoining room. There is a soap dish in the shower for each student and the vanity has several drawers to serve each student. A dead bolt lock is on the room side of each bathroom to secure each room individually. When you are not in the bathroom, you should keep this door locked. It is also considerate to knock before entering this shared facility.
While an attempt was made to standardize each room you will see subtle differences in layout and size. Placement into another specific dorm room may be requested in writing and may be accommodated on a first come first serve basis. Changes in room assignments are subject to a room change fee in addition to a possible increase of dormitory room fees if changing from a standard dorm to a premium dorm.
