Florida Avenue

Oglesby and Trelease make up the Florida Avenue Residence Halls. These coed, air-conditioned halls are part of the vibrant Urbana South Neighborhood. Living-Learning Communities include Health Professions (Oglesby) and WIMSE (Trelease). FAR is a good choice for students who wish to stay in their own rooms over fall and spring break (note that break periods are an additional charge).
