We want to make every transition into our community as smooth as possible! That’s why we’ve developed a custom-matched roommate program to help students meet new people and surround themselves with like-minded individuals. Every student will be asked to fill out a detailed profile questionnaire that includes pertinent information such as hobbies, interests, living habits, and study habits. The program then provides roommate options based on information provided so that residents have the ability to connect via social media before move in. We want to ensure each resident is matched with fellow students who complement their ideal living experience. The friends you make at The Social at South Florida are friends for a lifetime.
Our Resident Assistant Program provides mentors that have been thoroughly trained on how to handle and recognize crisis situations and assist with roommate mediation. The program also helps students develop essential skills needed for their future academic and professional pursuits.

Resident assistants are eligible for great benefits like free parking, free meals, and free rent!
