Housing and Residence Life

Special Interest Housing


The underlying principle of special interest housing at FGCU is to link residence halls with academic or general interest themes, and to create communities of residents with shared interests and goals.  Special interest communities are composed of students who live together in a residence hall and have a common interest or purpose that serves as the focal point of the community. Each special interest community is assigned a Resident Assistant who has been specifically trained to work with the community members and to assist them in developing community norms that promote their interests.

 Honors Community

The Honors Community is an ideal place for students participating in the University Honors Program to share their passion for learning.  The Honors Community, in partnership with the University Honors Program, works to integrate the experiences obtained inside of the classroom into the residence hall by offering programs/activities that contribute to the students’ intellectual engagement.  Centrally located and lakefront, the Honors Community provides a living environment that allows students to interact, grow, and develop together. Priority will be given to students accepted into the University Honors Program.
