FSCJ, UNF, & JU are all fairly close to the beach. Depends on what you're looking for.

Jacksonville Beach is a great place to live....and....several colleges are quite close to the beach Florida State College at Jacksonville ( also known as FSCJ) is on Beach Boulevard...about 10 minutes or less from the ocean. This college is a four year institution and has reasonable fees and a great reputation for very fine professors....
University of North Florida is about the same distance from the beach....it is a larger campus and provides more majors....it , also, is a State School so the tuition is also reasonable...there are dorms on the campus...and apartments very near the campus...the university has a great transportation system.
Jacksonville University is located about 20 minutes from the beach....it is a private University and has a wonderful business school as well as nursing and education, the arts, etc. It sits on the banks of the St. Johns River....and also has a wonderful Marine Science program....more expensive, yes...but...a great option.
Jones College is also about 20 minutes from the beach and is on the St Johns River...it is a private school....I am not as familiar with their programs.
My BEST advice is to attend one of the reputable schools that are listed above....it DOES matter which college you attend.....get the BEST education you can...it will be worth it!
