Campus Life and Residential Services
Stetson University has several housing options both on and off campus as well as a student union that provides dining services, coffee shop and snack bar. We also have numerous clubs, Greek organizations and intramural sports teams.
DeLand is a growing community centered around Stetson University and the revitalized main street/downtown district. The small town feel and being the skydiving capital of the world, it is no wonder our community was the first community to receive the MainStreet designation and was the sole recipient of the "Great American MainStreet Award." DeLand has been voted as the best MainStreet in Florida from 1999-2003. All these things and more make DeLand, and Stetson University a great choice.
This is a great place to build a family or home at whichever stage of life you are in. There are plenty of things to do for all ages and walks of life. Below are some links to the major areas to consider:
