On behalf of the University and Housing staff, I welcome you to Florida A&M University,
home of the Rattlers.  We are very happy that you chose to continue your education at
Florida A&M University. This letter serves to inform you that as of August 14, 2018, all on campus
housing spaces have been filled.  Although the University requires First Time In College (FTIC)
students to reside in a University owned or leased housing facility; we will grant an exception to
the FTIC on campus residency requirement for those that have not received a housing assignment
prior to August 14, 2018.

We truly regret our inability to provide on campus housing to all of our students who wish to live on
campus. We strongly encourage you to consider the following housing alternatives as you plan your
attendance for the 2018-2019 academic year.

You may request, in writing, that you be placed on the waiting list by sending an email that includes
your name, FAMU ID number and contact information to famuhousing@famu.edu. Along with your
request to be placed on
the waiting list, you must submit an on campus Housing application with the advance payment.


Submit form by mail to:

Office of University Housing
1596 Gibbs Hall Trail
Tallahassee, FL 32307

Or deliver in person to the Housing Office, lower level Gibbs Hall.

Should vacancies occur, we will fill those vacancies with students on the waiting list on a first
come, first serve basis.  Please note that the waiting list does not guarantee a room assignment. 
If you are not placed in a University owned facility by August 22, 2018, your university account will
be credited.

You may research the local community rental properties via the Internet or personal visit to acquire
off campus housing for the 2018-2019 academic year. The University has invited management teams
from local rental properties to set up information tables in the Grand Ballroom for the Off-Campus Housing
Fair on August 23 – 24, 2018, 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. to assist students with their housing needs. We
encourage you to be mindful that off campus rental facilities will be on a first come, first serve basis as well. 
Additionally, you should visit the off campus facilities and then make an informed decision regarding the
accessibility and safety of the facilities.  Florida A&M University and its University Board of Trustees do not
assume any liability regarding any off-campus facilities or with the agreements that you may enter with the
off-campus rental facilities.

Should you have any questions or comments, please contact our staff at
(850) 599-3651 or e-mail at famuhousing@famu.edu.
