Ringling College provides on-campus housing in our residence halls (fourth and fifth floors of the Student Center, Harmon Hall, Appleton Hall, Idelson Hall, and the second and third floors of the Keating Center), Bayou Village Apartments, Quad Apartments, the Cove Housing Complex, and several single-family type houses located on the perimeter of the campus. Students are assigned on-campus housing on a first-come, first-served basis. All on-campus residential students have the opportunity to request changes in room assignments, which are accommodated on a space-available basis. Ringling College does not provide supervision for off-campus housing.   

For security purposes, exterior doors to residence halls remain locked 24- hours-a-day and are accessible via individually numbered key fobs that can be activated and deactivated as needed. Students are issued keys for their rooms inside the residence halls.  Access to residence halls is limited to students and their authorized visitors. Residents of all campus owned apartments and houses are issued two keys, one to the exterior door(s) and one to the each student’s individual bedroom.  Strict key and fob control procedures are enforced to ensure maximum student safety in the residence halls.  That key control is handled by the Housing Division of the Office of Student Life.

Resident Assistants, who live in the residence halls, apartments and houses, are upper-division students who have undergone an extensive selection and training process and are available 24-hours-a-day to assist students.  Resident Assistants are student employees of the Office of Student Life.

In addition, Public Safety Officers patrol the inside, commons areas of all residence halls and the parking lots and exteriors areas of all apartments and other campus housing.  Unauthorized persons are not allowed in those areas and all non-student visitors must be accompanied by a resident student at all times.
