Residence Hall 2 rendering

We Need Your Support!

Our first residence hall has been a resounding success. It opened to full capacity in Fall 2022 and is currently at full capacity in its second year of operation.

We know that students who live on campus are more engaged with their instructors, utilize academic support systems more frequently, and participate more in on-campus activities. With that in mind, we’re launching a $12 million capital campaign to build a second student residence hall on the Daytona Beach Campus. 

Donations from the community will ensure our residence hall will be an affordable and accessible option for students.
