The Daytona Beach Campus, Daytona State’s largest campus, is located in a tourist city that attracts more than 10 million visitors each year, including snowbirds, students on spring break, families on vacation, NASCAR race fans and 500,000 bikers who come on motorcycles each spring and fall for Daytona’s famous Bike Weeks.
The campus houses the college's primary administrative offices and instructional space. Special features include the Mori Hosseini College of Hospitality and Culinary Management, home to the student-run Cafe 101 and the Southeast Museum of Photography; a full-service Learning Resource Center that also houses the library and DSC-UCF Writing Center; two locations for the Academic Support Center; and a Performing Arts Center, which is home to some of the area's finest performing arts productions. Also located on this campus is the Lemerand Center, an outstanding athletic multiplex with a fitness center, pool, gymnasium, and classrooms; Daytona State’s WDSC TV-15 broadcasting station; and a joint-use facility shared with the University of Central Florida.
Classroom and laboratory space serve a range of academic offerings – from baccalaureate programs to associate of arts, associate of science and certificate programs; adult high school, general education development and adult basic education; and customized training for business and industry. More than 24,000 students on average attend the Daytona Beach Campus each year.
Daytona Beach is a city on Florida’s Atlantic coast. It’s known for Daytona International Speedway, which hosts February’s iconic Daytona 500 NASCAR race. The beach has hard-packed sand where driving is permitted in designated areas. Near the boardwalk’s rides and arcades, Daytona Beach Bandshell stages free summer concerts. Steps from the beach, Daytona Lagoon water park offers go-karts, laser tag and waterslides.
When planning to relocate to Daytona Beach, one of the first things to consider is where to live. Virtually hundreds of reasonably priced apartments are located within a few miles of campus; however, some students rent houses, duplexes, or condominiums. There are many different services you can use to help find a place to live in the area. If you’re looking for a house or condo, you can work with any national realtor.
