About Suncoast Hillels

Think of the Florida Suncoast, and what comes to mind are our world class beaches, warm water, fantastic weather, the Gulf of Mexico and beautiful Tampa Bay. Add to this professional sports teams, amusement parks, tons of restaurants, theaters, art galleries, great concerts and more, and you’ll want to come for your next vacation. But the Suncoast also is home to excellent colleges and universities. Whether you’re looking for a large state university with awesome sports, a small or mid-sized liberal arts college or something more unique, you’ll find it here. We invite you to take some time to browse our web site and get a sense of our schools, and what Jewish student life is like on the Suncoast.

You’ll see…. it’s not just a vacation destination.
You’re gonna wish you were here.


Suncoast Hillels is the umbrella organization that works with Jewish college students in Tampa and St Petersburg, Florida. We are affiliated with Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life which is the largest Jewish campus organization in the world, and work with the nearly 3,000 Jewish college students in our region.


Located on the beautiful Suncoast of West Central Florida, each of our campuses has its own Hillel chapter. From this website, you can visit the Hillels at the University of South Florida, University of Tampa, Eckerd College and Florida Southern College. Just as our schools have their own unique culture and character, so too is Jewish life different on each campus. Please take some time to visit each campus site, and get a sense of what Jewish student life is like on the Suncoast.

We think you’ll like what you see.
