Department Mission Statement

The Department of Housing & Residence Life at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Daytona Beach is committed to supporting students' personal and professional growth as part of their residential experience. We create positive, safe, and inclusive residence hall communities that promote a culture of academic achievement.

Future Students

Living on campus is an exciting opportunity for Embry-Riddle students. Our eight residence halls and one off-campus housing complex are a great way to make positive and lasting friendships. ERAU Students often characterize their time in the residence halls as the best part of their college experience. In the words of a student of Class 2016, "Without a doubt, living on campus is my favorite thing about being in college."

All first-year students under the age of 21 are required to live in university residence halls and apartments managed by the Department of Housing and Residence Life for their first two (2) years on campus unless they meet the following exemptions:

  • Student lives within a 50-mile radius of the Daytona Beach campus (Florida Residency requires student to live at address for a full calendar year prior to starting classes at the University – documentation is required).
  • Student is 21 years of age or older.

Housing & Residence Life staff strive to support a positive living and learning environment through programs and events in the residence halls. Living on campus will keep you involved with the university and connected to new friends.
