Student Living & Dining Services


FOOD & DINING Services

Florida Polytechnic University Dining Services, managed by Chartwells, is committed to providing quality food and excellent service. The food court and main dining room is located in our Wellness Center. The food court offers a variety of food options, including retail options provided by Mosaic Cafe, Einstein Bros. Bagel, and Tu Taco. For more information on campus food and dining services, including hours of operation, see the University website

Per university policy, all residential students are required to participate in a residential meal plan membership.  Students need to log into CAMS to sign up before the default dates each term or their will meal plan will default to the 10 meals per week plan:  Fall term-2nd Friday of August; Spring term-2nd Friday of December. Students have until drop/add day each semester to upgrade their meal plan selection.  After that date, students will be billed and locked in on their selected plan for the semester.

Vending Services

Vending machines are available in several locations throughout the campus, including canned/bottled beverage machines, featuring a large selection of popular brands. All machines will accept cash as well as credit cards. Individuals who lose funds in vending machines should contact the Auxiliary Enterprise Service Office, located in the Wellness Center, for a refund. Damage or maintenance issues should be directed to the Auxiliary Enterprise Services Office. 

Housing & Residential Life

The residential student experience is a critical component for the success of our campus and for many of our students at Florida Polytechnic University. Our goal is to provide students living in university housing with safe, well-maintained facilities, and programs that are conducive to student learning and success.

Florida Poly’s Department of Residential Life oversees residence hall programming and initiatives, supervision of Resident Assistants (student employees), resident emergency and crisis response, and student conduct to offer students a living-learning environment that supports and promotes leadership, collaboration, innovation, adaptability, and development.

The Department of Residential Life is staffed by the Assistant Director for Residential Life and Student Experience, along with Resident Assistants on each floor. The buildings are owned by Vestcor Communities and the leasing process is handled by Coastal Ridge Real Estate.

Residence Hall I

From high-speed, wireless Internet access to a fitness facility and game room, the 90,000-square-foot Residence Hall I is designed with the modern student in mind. Comfortable, secure and fully furnished, the three- and four-bedroom suites have the latest technology and accommodations to make learning and living outside the classroom comfortable and easy. There are two bathrooms per four-person suite.

Residence Hall II

Similar to Residence Hall I, the newest residence hall boasts high-speed, wireless internet access, game rooms and common study areas on all five floors of the 135,000-square-foot building. The majority of Residence Hall II is made up of “Semi Suites,” two double bedrooms furnished with two twin beds, a desk and chair, sharing a common bathroom. It was designed with a more traditional residence hall feel and features twice as much communal space as Residence Hall I, encouraging students to leave their rooms and create their own social hub.
