Freshmen want entertainment and convenience, and The Standard at Tampa delivers! Residents enjoy a short commute to campus yet the freedom to explore all that USF has to offer — not to mention resort-style amenities throughout the community. We provide incoming students with everything they need to create a healthy lifestyle, balanced with options for meeting new people, staying fit, and studying for classes. Students can spend free time unwinding in our rooftop pool or spa, which are also nearby our grills, fire pits, and hammocks. The fitness facility, game lounge, private courtyard, tanning beds, and sauna are also popular choices with our residents, who can even grab a coffee from our self-serve Starbucks machine. If you need to review before exams, head to the computer lab, which includes private study rooms and free printing.

While schoolwork and meeting new people are all a part of the college experience, we take comfort and convenience to the next level. Our pet-friendly apartments in Tampa, FL, allow residents to bring their pets with them, making each apartment feel more like home.
