FSU-Panama dorm 1 DSC01895 FSU-Panama dorm


The residential facilities provide a comfortable environment to support the educational mission of the University. The quiet residential neighborhood provides a haven for studying, yet is only a short ride away from the urban activities of Panama City.  The student can also enjoy the peaceful, natural environment from the backyards and patios.

Interested students must complete a “Housing Application” and send it along with a deposit of US $25.00 (non refundable).


  • Room rates may be changed after 30 days notice to the assignee in the event of unanticipated circumstances beyond the control of the University.
  • Housing applications are expected to be received at least 90 days prior to the beginning of the semester.
  • Once the housing application is processed and the student is notified of the availability of a room, a US$1,525.00 deposit must be paid to secure the room; this payment must be made within the next 30 days of the submission of the application. This deposit includes a non-refundable US$25.00 application, a US$500.00 security deposit that will be reimbursed to the student at the end of the corresponding semester of occupancy when the room is vacated provided that the student is not liable to any damages to the apartment and a US$1000.00 down payment to the cost of housing for the semester. Any charges for damages will be deducted from the security deposit. If the amount of charges exceed the amount of the deposit, the student will be held liable for the full amount of the charges. Security deposit refunds will not be granted under any other circumstances.
  • Full time enrollment is required to obtain a student visa from Panamanian immigration authorities (Servicio Nacional de Migracion) which is a requisite to be in FSU-Panama Housing.
  • Once reservation is confirmed, the deposit will not be refunded.
Payment of the full semester amount must be made prior to occupying the housing unit.
