Housing & Pensacola Life
Situated on 1,600 acres of rolling hills and natural woodland along the Escambia River, the UWF main campus is located 10 miles north of beautiful downtown Pensacola.
Resting on the banks of Pensacola Bay, our Southern town will take you back in time. Pensacola offers visitors and locals a rich heritage, fresh coastal cuisine, art and culture, unique shopping and many festivals throughout the year celebrating everything from music and food to the arts. The National Naval Aviation Museum and Pensacola Historic District are among visitors' favorite spots.
Housing & Campus Life
UWF's main campus offers housing for approximately 2,040 students in the university's several residence halls located in the heart of campus including Southside Villages, Argo, Heritage, Martin, Pace, and Presidents Residence Halls and the University Village Student Apartments.
UWF Housing and Residence Life has formed a partnership with West Florida Historic Preservation, Inc (WFHPI) to provide student housing in downtown Pensacola for UWF graduate students. Graduate students will have the opportunity to live in one of two homes located in Historic Pensacola Village: the McVoy House or the Quina Singh House. In both houses, students have their own room and share common areas.
