Flagler College Campus Ariel View

Hotel Ponce de Leon, the Campus Centerpiece

The centerpiece of the campus is the former Hotel Ponce de Leon, a grand resort built in 1888 by Henry Flagler. This imposing structure is an intricate complex of four buildings representing a melange of historical styles. The distinctive architecture is complemented by beautiful grounds and an impressive interior, which includes ornate hand-carved wood, panels of imported marble, elaborate murals, and Tiffany stained glass windows. The highly- centralized campus consists of four other historic structures, a library, a student center, an auditorium, a gymnasium, an art museum, a laboratory and radio station for the Communication Department, and five residence halls.

Ponce de Leon Hall has earned the distinction as a National Historic Landmark, the highest designation for a historic building or place. Markland House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the nation’s official listing of sites and properties of historical and cultural significance. Eight of the twelve College buildings are historic structures.

The campus is located in the heart of St. Augustine, the nation’s oldest city, near the Restoration Area and other points of historic interest. The ideal climate, historic landmarks, numerous attractions, magnificent beaches, and Old World ambiance of St. Augustine provide an inviting campus environment for an institution of higher learning.

Ringhaver Student Center

The Ringhaver Student Center is centrally located between the three residence halls, opposite Ponce De Leon Hall, and down the street from the Proctor Library. The Ringhaver Student Center includes:

  • a bistro
