Mission
The mission of the Office of Housing and Residence Life is to create a home away from home where everyone belongs. We are dedicated to promoting a safe and positive learning environment in which healthy relationships are formed, individual differences are appreciated and residents are encouraged to take an active role in their community and education.

 

Resident Assistants
A resident assistant (RA) is a student staff member working and living in a residence hall. Resident assistants provide support, guidance and assistance for resident students.

 

Community Advisors

A community advisor (CA) is a student staff member living, working and supervising RAs in the residence halls. Community advisors are there to lead the staff team in resident programming and community development and provide additional support and care to residents.

 

Area Coordinators

An area coordinator (AC) is a professional staff member who oversees one half of campus staff and residents. The AC lives and works in the residence halls and is there for critical issue response, resident  follow-up and sets the standards for establishing a positive community on campus.

                 

Director and Associate Directors

The Director of Housing and Residence Life and Associate Directors are full-time professionals who serve as the chief administrators for the supervision, management and personal and community development of on campus students at Lynn University.  

  

Student Residency Requirement

As a residential institution, Lynn University expects students who have completed less than 60 credit hours to live and board within the University residential system. Undergraduate day students with over 60 earned credit hours may request to live in housing owned or controlled by the University however; assignment is based on space availability, which is not guaranteed. All other degree-seeking students may request to live in housing owned or controlled by the University however, assignment is based on space availability, which is not guaranteed and will be given consideration only after the undergraduate day student population has been accommodated. 

Students meeting any one of the following conditions may be permitted to live off campus:

  1. Students 21 years of age or older;
  2. Students who are married and/or have children;
  3. Students who have completed four (4) semesters of college as a full-time student; and
  4. Students residing with their parents or legal guardian within commuting distance of Lynn University. In this circumstance, eligible students will be required to provide a notarized letter from the student’s parents or legal guardian stating that the Florida address is the parents’ or legal guardian’s permanent residence. In addition, a copy of one parent’s valid Florida driver’s license (which shows proof of Florida residency) is required.

Living in one of Lynn's residence halls is not just about where you sleep - it's a way of life. That's why we call it "residence life." And each of the six residence halls - where 1,200 of your fellow students live- has it's own style and South Florida flair. Check out their features here

RA Selection 2021-2022

 

The Resident Assistant (RA) is a student staff member within Housing and Residence Life at Lynn University. The most important component of the position for Resident Assistants is to spend time getting to know each of the residents that live in their assigned community and promote individual and group development through the implementation of programs and purposeful interactions. The Resident Assistant is expected to cultivate a sense of community and an environment of purpose, respect, and discipline.

RAs are expected to serve as role models on campus, exhibit the ability to be effective listeners and excellent resources, and show ethical behavior at all times. The nature of the live-in position often requires work outside of traditional business hours, including weekends and university academic breaks. The RA position requires both regularly scheduled responsibilities and times at which student staff are available and accessible to community residents.
