Life on PBA’s campus has an energy all its own. You’ll have daily access to activities, events and exceptional facilities across our campus that will help you make the most of your PBA experience.

Hang Your Hat

Our residence facilities include suite-style, apartments and traditional room options, and each has its own charm, feel and amenities.

  • Baxter Hall—Baxter is a four-story residence hall reserved for female students with 120 suite-style rooms, lounge areas, computer labs, laundry facilities and study and TV rooms.
  • Coastal Towers—Coastal Towers is a nine-story apartment building with 42 one- and two-bedroom apartments, mailboxes inside the building, laundry facilities and a rooftop pool. This housing is for graduate students, faculty and staff only.

  • Rinker Hall—Rinker is a five-story, male-only hall with 60 suite-style rooms and a computer lab, laundry facilities and kitchen in the main lobby.
  • Weyenberg Hall—Weyenberg is a two-story residence with 12 rooms and houses primarily students in the Supper Honors Program, with a shared main lounge, kitchen and laundry.

Get Into the Action

Health and fitness is a big part of the PBA culture. This is why two-thirds of all students play intramural sports that include flag football, basketball, indoor volleyball, beach volleyball, floor hockey, ping pong and racquetball, among others. We also offer club sports and personal training. And there’s nothing like a jog along the Intracoastal Waterway or on the nearby beaches, or a swim in the ocean.

Setting the Standard

We take a lot of pride in the quality of our facilities. In fact, five new buildings have been added to campus just in the last 10 years. The $31 million Warren Library provides the most advanced learning resource technology you’re likely to find. And the John and Sheila Rinker Sports Center is one of the finest intercollegiate athletic facilities at any NCAA Division II college in the country, and even rivals those of many smaller Division I schools.

How to Speak Sailfish

Our Sailfish intercollegiate athletic teams bring the entire campus community together in spirit at games, matches and events throughout the year. We field 17 men’s and women’s athletic programs, which compete in the Sunshine State Conference and have a proven legacy of success with conference championships, NCAA regional championships and NCAA finalist appearances.

Get Your Chef On

One of the more popular events at the Sailfish Cup every year is the hotly contested Iron Chef competition.
