3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It's a Lot Better Than on-Campus – Living off campus is MUCH better than living on campus if you're funding your college experience on your own. On campus housing is extremely expensive for the small amount of space you're given. Plus, it takes about an hour to park on campus during the day, so if you have to pick up groceries, don't count on getting home very quickly. The school has affiliated off campus housing, but I would take a tour of it first. Some of the apartments are dirty and ghetto. The best thing to do is look around and tour the apartment before signing anything. My roommates and I got sick of paying way too much money for small space and stubborn landlords, so we were able to find a rental house in a gated community with a ton of space for about $300 a month each. For your first year, I would suggest living on campus just to meet people, but after that, definitely try to find a rental house. There are a lot within 10 miles of campus that are very nice.

Overall Experience: A Great Experience – I love University of Central Florida. It is such a beautiful campus filled with so many different people. Many activities, you can't ever be bored. A perfect college experience.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Could Be More Helpful – The nursing program at UCF seems very inaccessible. In other words, professors and advisers make it difficult to receive the information necessary to succeed. I've had to really search and be persistent to receive answers.Besides that it is a growing program taught in a beautiful campus.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Walking around campus I see many different faces in terms of ethnicity. Black, white, Hispanics, Asians all working together to create a fun and safe campus perfect for learning.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Walking Is the Way to Go! Walking is the easiest way to get to class on time. There are many parking garages on campus but between 9-12 it is very hard to find a decent parking spot. So if you can walk there, DO IT!

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Getting Better – Currently one of the main dining halls is under construction. It has been inconvienate at time but I know in the Fall it will be awesome, and the B- will go to an A+!

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Attractions & Beyond! The University of Central Florida is located in Orlando,Fl. The school is only 30 minutes away from Walt Disney World and Universal Studios Orlando. There is always something to do in Orlando . Even downtown Orlando is a lot of fun. The downtown area has tons of restaurants and shops and parking is not a problem. UCF is definitely the right choice for me in regards to local atmosphere.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My overall experience at UCF has been fantastic! The classes and friends are great!

4 College Junior

Facilities: Our athletic gym is amazing, and provides plenty of machine options, as well as free weights.

2 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics at UCF is considerably important, however I do notice many athletes b/c they don't wear jerseys and such.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: That statement will be thrown around alot during your time here at UCF and boy does it apply. Every student at UCF has the opportunity to succeed, have fun, make friends, and achieve success if they strive for it. The possibilities here at UCF are endless.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek Life is at UCF but mostly they attend the nearby clubs and bars without many house parties. You don't need to join a frat to have fun here at UCF but it helps I suppose.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Every club surrounding the UCF campus is 18 and up and have great drink specials throughout the week and weekend. Also UCF provides Knight-lynx a late night bus service that picks up students on-campus and at off-campus appartments and gives rides to all surrounding bars and clubs.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Just Dont Do Anything Stupid – they people in charge are usually pretty lenient about most things. when you get caught, just be respectful and youll be fine. just do not smoke marijuana on campus. you will lose your housing.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Easy to Meet People – there are always events going on and its really easy to meet people. generally, all of the students like meeting new people and it is very easy to get along with the population.

2 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: I received a decent amount of financial aid during my first year. But my experience with Financial aid was a pain and time consuming. My money was held due to 'to do's' needed to complete my financial aid verification.
Tips:
1.complete all your 'to do's' in a timely manner
2.view your account and fees

3 Recent Alumnus

Parking: Parking is expanding which makes parking on campus more convenient. Last year, there was a lack of parking spaces, but recently a new parking Garage has been built on campus. There are consequences that are in effect if you are in the wrong parking spot or without a decal.

3 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: Students at UCF are very aware of the effects drugs and alcohol can have on users. A requirement for 1st year students is to take the mandatory online drug and alcohol class and test. Drinking is not permitted to underage students and is usually done in safe environments, as far as I know.

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: The Place to Be! The dorms are clean, close to everything, and a great place to make friends.

Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Not the Thing to Do – I am living ON campus and so are most of my friends. Those who live off campus are older students. I've been told that to have the REAL college experience, I should live on campus.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academics: I love the University of Central Florida. It has just about everything a student could want, all in a reasonable distance. UCF offers strict classes with academic aid to help students with those classes, transportation around Orlando, amazing living quarters, exceptional food choices, and above all else great opportunity for their students.

Weather: Hot and Rainy! The weather in Orlando is hot, humid and rainy. It sucks having to walk across campus in the blistering heat or a random downpour.In the winter, however, the weather is nice and cool,but not too cold.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Good Selection! Orlando has many decently affordable student apartment complexes within less then a 10 min drive to campus. Some are nicer then others, and security at each one varies as well. UCF provides free shuttle service between most of then and the main campus, so its pretty convenient. UCF police as do rounds at most, so that's nice. UCF also offers an online website to help you find off campus housing.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Pretty Safe Campus – On campus, they provide us with emergency phone stations, well lit paths and there is usually security and campus police roaming around. I feel very safe on campus during the day, but im a little unsure at night, only due to stories i've heard about previous incidents.

5 College Junior

Computers: I take my classes online but so far have not had any issues with accessing my classes.

UCF is growing by leaps and bounds. The students love to hang out, and they all know how to have a good time. There’s so much to do and there’s something for everyone. Do you really need any more reasons to go to college in Florida?

Orlando is an exciting city with tons of attractions and activities available to all. In many ways, going to school at UCF resembles a four-year vacation (Disney on Sunday, classes on Monday!). Downtown Orlando on a Friday night can, at times, seem like Mardi Gras, and City Walk on a Saturday night isn’t to be missed. Also, Floridians are welcoming and friendly and most students at UCF make friends quickly and easily. Friendly faces and sunny skies, what more could a college student ask for? The stellar academics, up-and-coming sports teams, and state-of-the-art facilities are reason enough to spend the next four years of your life at UCF; the city of Orlando is just one big fringe benefit. Come join us!
