JUNROTC Housing Options

Midshipmen/College Program

As a residential campus, Jacksonville University requires all first-year students, with a few exceptions, to live on campus. Learn about housing options.


As an OC/MECEP attending JUNROTC, you rate BAH (Zip 32211). Most use this to find an apartment to their liking near JU/UNF/FSCJ.

You may apply for base housing at NS Mayport or NAS Jacksonville (info below), but few OC’s/MECEP’s actually use this method to establish themselves here. This may be due to the large selection of apartment complexes near JU/UNF/FSCJ.

Apartment Location Considerations

  • Most are dissatisfied with the traffic/45min+ drive time from the Orange Park/Blanding/103rd area.
  • Traffic is also a negative factor on Southside Blvd, South of JTB.
  • You will travel to JU 2-7x/week depending on semester scheduling. This will occur even if you attend UNF or FSCJ, and will usually be early in the morning (PT is 0530-0700).
