Student Life

PBA's on-campus housing is yet another way for students to get connected at PBA. We offer a variety of housing styles.

Campus Living

Living on campus is the best way to plunge into life at Palm Beach Atlantic University and to quickly feel connected to all that PBA has to offer. The campus is clean and safe — and you’ll love the friendly, urban waterside lifestyle. Some of our residence halls even offer views of the Intracoastal Waterway, Palm Beach and the ocean on the horizon.  Whether you’re looking to relax on the beach or intern at a Fortune 500 company, you’ll have an easy walk from campus.

Our $31 million Warren Library is one of the best libraries in the Southeast.


In just the past 10 years we’ve built five major buildings on campus, including the spectacular $31 million Warren Library. Ours was the first wireless campus in Florida. And, of course, it doesn’t get any better than our setting on the Intracoastal Waterway in the heart of downtown West Palm Beach.

Residence Life

Living in Baxter, Johnson, Oceanview, Weyenberg, Rinker, Flagler Towers, Lakeview Apartments, or Mango Apartments is a tremendous way to become part of the PBA community. Each residence has a distinctive personality you’ll grow to appreciate and enjoy.

Recreation and Fitness

If you love to be physically active, there’s no better place than PBA. The Greene Complex offers outstanding facilities for basketball, racquetball, volleyball, jogging and fitness, as well as classes and personal training. You can also swim or surf in the nearby Atlantic Ocean, walk or jog alongside the beautiful Intracoastal Waterway or run across the bridge into Palm Beach and let your dreams take root as you pass some of the most luxurious homes in the world.

Sailfish Athletics

Our 11 varsity men’s and women’s teams compete at the NCAA Division II level, offering students numerous opportunities to show their PBA spirit. On the horizon is a new 96-acre, 30,000-square-foot athletics complex, just a short drive from campus.


If you love to compete, you’re not alone at PBA. Three out of every four students participates in intramurals. We also offer club sports and an Outdoor Program.

Campus Dining

Hungry? At PBA, you can dine in one of the finest on-campus dining areas in the Southeast and choose from Fresh Food Company, P.O.D. Express, Einstein Bros. Bagels and Chick-fil-A.

Department of Safety and Security

Your safety is our top priority, which is why our Department of Safety and Security offers round-the-clock escorts, 22 emergency call boxes, 24-hour campus patrols, community education, victim assistance and much more.

Speaking of PBA...

“Some institutions claim to have a spirit of community. At PBA, this is a reality. The family-like environment encouraged me to return to PBA to pursue my graduate degree. The weather, the location and the family of kindred spirits are more than enough to make me happy that I chose PBA.”
