housing

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 seven residence halls, where you and 1,500 of your fellow Fighting Knights live, has its own style and South Florida flair! Check out the benefits of living in each hall and learn more about their features here or here
