UCF Housing and Residence Life announced this week that UCF students may now use the myUCF portal to apply for a space at the new NorthView student apartments.

Beginning next fall, there will be space for 600 students in the luxury apartments located across the street from the Bright House Networks Stadium. NorthView offers several floor plans, including 2-bedroom, 2-bath; 4-bedroom, 4-bath; and 4-bed, 4-bath lofts, which will have living rooms on both levels.

The apartments will be managed by UCF Housing and Residence Life. NorthView is being developed by Alan Ginsburg with Finfrock and Orlando-based Cuhaci & Peterson Architects LLC designing the project.

“UCF Housing has been chosen as the manager because we provide a seamless connection to university resources, such as academic advising and campus events, as well as systems like myUCF, which allows students to easily apply and pay for housing with scholarships, grants, and loans,” said Jimmy Moore, assistant director for UCF Housing and Residence Life.

NorthView features include dedicated garage parking, a rooftop sky deck, fitness center, game room, resort style pool, and flat-screen televisions in each apartment.

The apartments will be fully-furnished with modern appliances and furniture with upscale finishes. Electricity, high-speed wireless internet, cable TV, water and parking will be included in the rental rate with no caps on energy usage.

NorthView will be built among two faith centers for community gatherings and student resources. One is currently dedicated to Hillel, the Jewish student organization. The affiliation of other has not yet been decided.

Students who apply by the Feb. 1 priority deadline will be invited to attend an exclusive room sign-up event where they will be able to select the unit in which they will live.

“With only 600 spaces available, we expect to fill up rather quickly,” said Moore. “Students who are interested should certainly apply as soon as possible.”
