It is the intent of the College to make the residence hall environment an integral part of the total college program. To this end, the College brings together individuals of widely varied backgrounds, personalities, and educational interests and endeavors to provide an environment in which the students can develop both intellectually and socially. Moreover, it is believed that the residence hall program complements the total College program by helping students to realize their educational goals, to work toward solutions of personal problems, to refine personal values, and to develop greater concern and respect for one another. Additionally, the residence hall program is intended to encourage students to be participating individuals and to take a greater role in regulating their living conditions. The residence halls are located in Ponce de Leon Hall, Lewis House, Cedar Hall, and Florida East Coast Railway (FEC) A, B and C towers. The residence halls are within close proximity to all other campus facilities including classrooms, faculty and administrative offices, the auditorium, the library, the dining hall, the gymnasium and other recreational facilities.
Resident Advisors are experienced upper-class student leaders who are here to serve as a resource and develop a positive community in the Residence Halls. RAs live in the Residence Halls and are often the most visible link in the Residence Life program. RAs are peer counselors, friends, policy enforcers, fellow students, party planners, and great sources of information about everything Flagler College.
Head Resident Advisors are undergraduate students who have served as RAs for at least two semesters. There is an HRA in every Residence Hall to be an additional resource for residents and RAs. HRAs fulfill all the vital roles of Resident Advisors, plus additional supervisory and administrative duties. Head Resident Advisors are a key resource in after-hours assistance.

A large part of the educational experience at a residential college is life on campus. For this reason, all Freshman must live on campus unless they have received prior approval from the Office of Admissions. Transfer students who have completed less than 24 semester hours of credit are also required to live on campus unless otherwise approved by the Office of Admissions. For returning students, housing is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, regardless of the student’s year in College. For students who enroll for the fall semester, housing contracts are for the full academic year; thus, the student is responsible for the yearly room and board charges, as stated in the Flagler College Catalog. Students entering Flagler in January will contract for housing for the spring semester only. Students who will graduate in December, or students who will study away in the spring, should contact the Office of Residence Life regarding revision of the housing contract.
Signing of the Flagler College Contract for Student Housing and the submission of the required deposit serves as a binding agreement to fully pay for room and board for the associated academic year. Students wishing to discuss this policy further must submit an e-mail to the Dean of Student Services at email@example.com
