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.

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.
