PLEASE NOTE: First-year students are given priority for housing on UCF's main campus. Students of all classifications may apply for student housing located at the Rosen College Apartments and NorthView. Married and family student housing is not available at UCF.
Are first-year students guaranteed housing at UCF?
No. There are more students who request housing than can be accommodated, so it is very important to apply for housing as soon as you are offered admission. If the type of housing you request is full, you may have the opportunity to switch to another type of UCF Housing based on availability. First-year housing is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
What is the difference between an academic-year agreement and a year-round agreement?
This is one of the first decisions you will need to make. Students who choose an academic-year agreement will live in their assigned room for Fall and Spring , and must leave during the winter break. Residents of the Rosen College Apartments will also have this type of agreement but are not required to leave during the winter break. Students who choose The Towers or NorthView will sign a year-round agreement for Fall, Spring and Summer — never having to leave during their agreement.
How much does it cost to apply for housing?
You must make a prepayment to complete your application. The prepayment is not a deposit; it will be deducted from your Fall rent. The prepayment for housing agreements starting in Fall is $250.
Where can I get more information on housing rates and options?
Up-to-date housing information is available at housing.ucf.edu. Rates are subject to change.
Can I bring my car to campus?
It’s not necessary to have a car at UCF, but parking is available for residents. A shuttle system is available and serves the on- and off-campus apartment complexes. Parking information is available at parking.ucf.edu.
Are Housing tours available?
UCF Housing is currently offering both virtual and in person tours. Future residents can get a sense of what it’s like to live here through our weekly virtual and in person sessions. For details and to sign up, visit housing.ucf.edu/tours/dailytours.
How does dining on campus work?
Go to ucf.campusdish.com to choose from several optional dining memberships, each with access to UCF’s two dining halls — ’63 South in Ferrell Commons and Knightro’s by the Addition Financial Arena. On-campus eateries are abundant, too, and include Chick-fil-A, Einstein Bros. Bagels, Café Bustelo and more. You can also do your own cooking. Appliances permitted vary by room type. You can find those details at housing.ucf.edu/faq under “What to Expect.”
