FSU's welcoming campus is located on the oldest continuous site of higher education in Florida, in a community that fosters free inquiry and embraces diversity, along with championship athletics and a prime location in the heart of the state capital.
Florida State University owns more than 6 km² of land. Apart from classes, on-campus students can attend free movies, go bowling, attend one of the university’s many athletic or artistic events and much more.
Students also have access to many resources to keep them safe and healthy — like a state-of-the-art fitness facility and an on-campus health center. The university also houses seven libraries, bowling alley, student life center with a cybercafé and cinema, museums and many other organizations.
The campus territory is served by bus routes, so students can easily go around campus and to the nearest cities. There is also lakeside recreational area near the campus.
Florida State University has more than 700 organizations and clubs for students to join, as well as adventure trips for kayaking, backpacking, whitewater rafting and more coordinated through the school’s Outdoor Pursuits program. They range from cultural and athletic to philanthropy.
Florida State University provides undergraduate students with housing on the main campus. FSU is a traditional residential university wherein most students live on campus in university residence halls or nearby in privately owned residence halls, apartments and residences.
Florida State currently has 18 residence halls on campus, housing undergraduate, graduate and international students. Residence halls offer suite-style, apartment-style and community-style accommodations.
Freshmen are not required to live on campus, and typically, there is no room for every student, so it’s important to apply early to live in university housing.
The Florida State University career center aims to provide comprehensive career services to students, alumni, employers, faculty/staff and other members of the FSU community. These services include on- and off-campus job interviews, career planning, assistance in applying to graduate and professional schools, internships, fellowships, co-op placements, research, and career portfolio resources.
The Career Center offers workshops, information sessions and career fairs. Staff at the FSU Career Center advise students and alumni regarding resumes and portfolios, tactics for job interviews, cover letters, job strategies and other potential leads for finding employment in the corporate, academic, and government sectors.
