3 College Senior

Campus Housing: The dorm I stayed in was ok. But it seemed like the people did not socialize with others in the same complex.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: nice housing for freshman, after that most move off campus

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It depends on the dorm but its a great way to get familiar with campus

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived in the Nike dorms. These dorms were a lot newer than most of the others and were pretty well kept. They were spacious compared to other University dorms I've seen, but still not spacious enough for my taste. The amenities were fair but the cost was extremely high compared to living off campus. The social atmosphere in my building was terrible but it was a lot better in other buildings. My dorms were the furthest away from the center of campus but still easy to get to espceially by bike or skateboard.

There are many options available for all types of students, whether you’re an incoming freshman or an upperclassman. UCF’s housing service has dorms that will satisfy any incoming student. These include the magnificent Nike and Hercules complexes. The kicker here is that there are also many dorms, including Pegasus Landing and Apollo, that are revolting to just about everyone and aren’t entirely safe.

If you’re planning to live on campus, Academic Village is the way to go. These dorms are new, and they’re set up as apartment-style housing. They’ve even been compared to four-star hotels! Check out the other dorms before signing up for them; you never know how you will feel about someplace until you see it in person.
