How Housing Works at Full Sail
Published on Apr 10, 2017 by Stephanie Rizzo
From the immersive environment to accelerated degree programs, one big difference at Full Sail University is the fact that there are no dorms on campus.
“Considering the type of student we attract, this is good news,” says Shaun Moore, a Full Sail Campus Admissions Representative. “Over the years, I’ve seen students turn their apartment breakfast nooks into recording spaces, miniature game studios, or edit suites. The extra room you get with an apartment makes a huge difference when it comes to outfitting your creative space.”
Barbara Smith, Director of Housing Resources, agrees. “We’ve found our students prefer the flexibility of being able to choose an apartment that suits their individual needs and situations,” she says. “Plus, you don’t have to share a 10 x 10 room with someone else.”
Built right into the admissions process, housing resources at Full Sail begin with the online housing guide, outlining the more than 40 Full Sail-friendly complexes in the Winter Park area.
The Housing Guide will give you a good idea of what’s possible when it comes to choosing a place to live, and the fact that it’s updated every few months ensures you’ll get the most pertinent information. Each complex offers a unique host of amenities – from recreational perks like basketball courts and pool and jacuzzi access, to practical considerations like laundry facilities.
Don’t have a vehicle? That’s okay, says Barbara. “Many of the complexes we work with are located within walking distance of campus.”
Lot of students choose to live with roommates during their time in school. Barbara and her team of housing coordinators will walk you through the process of filling out a roommate profile. Once that’s complete, you’ll be automatically added to a list of potential roommates, a resource provided to all new Full Sail students seeking housing. If you’d rather live alone, you can request to have your name removed from the list upon enrollment.
