Alcohol use is common on college campuses, however, not everyone drinks. Some students prefer to live in a sober community, free from substance use and abuse.



It is common for colleges and universities to have high rates of drug use and abuse in student housing. However, many students do not use drugs and want the option of living in substance-free dorms.

The University of Florida or "U of F" which is in Gainesville, Florida, has what they call "Special Housing Areas", but none of them are designated as sober or substance free. However, they support substance-free living under the banner of wellness:

Wellness Floor: The Wellness Floor in Beaty Towers promotes a balanced, healthy lifestyle in an environment in which wellness and substance-free living are viable and acceptable choices.

So students who want to live sober ("substance free") should pursue the Wellness Floor in the U of F housing.
