All full-time freshmen are required to reside in University housing. Algonquin Hall is a suite-style building available to both upperclassmen and freshmen. Glades Park Towers is the newest residence hall, specifically designated for students who will be taking college courses for the very first time. It's a suite-style residence hall consisting of both double and single rooms. The University Village Apartments accommodate more than 500 upper-division undergraduate and graduate students. In general, first-year college students are not eligible to reside in the apartment community. The apartments offer both studio efficiency and four-bedroom apartments. Indian River Towers is a suite-style residence hall featuring both double and single rooms, and is open to both upperclassmen and freshmen. Located adjacent to the barbeque pits and sand volleyball court, IRT offers unique amenities such as a two-story lofted lobby area and a furnished sun deck. Heritage Park Towers is a suite-style residence hall for both freshmen and upperclassmen. All dorms have unlimited Ethernet Internet, cable TV hookups, laundry facilities, computer labs, study lounges, and multi-purpose rooms with large-screen TVs. Heritage Park Towers, Indian River Towers, and the University Village Apartments also offer a community kitchen.

The dorms at Florida Atlantic University are, by far, some of the nicest and most spacious around. All are very new in comparison to other universities and are in equal vicinity to key points of the University. Indian River Towers, although the oldest of the dorms, is the best pick because the rooms are larger and each suite includes its own furnished living room. Even the student apartments are a great option for upperclassmen because not only do they include their own kitchen, but they are also still within walking distance from campus.
