Mark your calendarsFirst Year Experience

Congratulations, you're #NewToJU! Mark your calendars- we have a fun-filled summer planned for you.

Get familiar with your campus by joining us this summer for one of our Summer Splash sessions and learn more details about Dolphin Dive In, our orientation experience in the fall. 

First Year Experience


Welcome home, Phins! Immerse yourself in the student experience, be a part of a community of students to do and explore, and understand what it means to be a Jacksonville University Dolphin. Our first-year student housing options are located on the South end of campus- Williams Hall and Botts Hall. 

Students who have accepted their spot in the Honors & University Scholars program will live in the Honors Residential Commons. This living-learning community is located in North Hall and is led by a Faculty Principal (live-in faculty member) with support from a live-in residential life staff member and honors student mentors.

Looking for a roommate? Join our student community on ZeeMee and meet some of the students that will be joining you in the fall!
