As of 2023, there are six Flagler residence halls for students to live in during their four years at Flagler.
Freshman | Cedar, Lewis, and Ponce Halls
Sophomores | FEC Towers, and Abare Hall
Juniors & Seniors | Sebastian House (new to Flagler!)
Recently, the College has prioritized facility upgrades as a key initiative of its 5-Star Plan.
This includes major renovations to Ponce Hall’s historic residential wings and enhancements to Lewis and Cedar Halls. In addition to a new air conditioning system and overhauled Wi-Fi network with fiber optic cabling, the Ponce laundry and bathroom spaces as well as common areas like the Mezzanine are being renovated and re-furnished.
Lewis and Cedar Halls have also been upgraded with modernized rooms, flooring, and new furniture, along with additional common and study areas, kitchen spaces, and laundry rooms.
Flagler added its newest residence hall this spring with the purchase of a St. Augustine riverfront hotel now known as Sebastian House. The 95-room property near the entrance to downtown is less than a mile east of campus, just a 10-minute walk. Sebastian House will also include a Provisions on Demand (P.O.D.), a gym, a pool, and more than 100 parking spaces. There is also a continuously running shuttle to bring students back and forth from campus.
Based on feedback from students, faculty and staff about eating on campus, Flagler College Dining Services is excited to roll out several new changes this fall ranging from more vegetarian options, major dining facilities changes, and partnering with local food and beverage businesses.
- Kookaburra Coffee | This local favorite around St. Augustine will now be the official coffee served in both the D-Hall, as well as The Bistro’s coffee bar in Ringhaver Students Center.
- Fresh from Florida Fridays | Dining Services will add more locally sourced and fresh produce through Fresh from Florida Fridays, as well as partnering with Traders Hill Farm and The Villages Grown.
- “Local Restaurant Row” at the D-Hall | This section will feature items from local food trucks Big Island Bowls and The Little Sombrero. Boar’s Head deli offerings will also move to the D-Hall for sandwich options.
- Coming Spring '24: Bento Sushi | which offers sushi products and hot Asian foods made fresh, on-site daily, will move into the Boar’s Head deli section of The Bistro to offer quick meals and grab & go options.
