Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is usually within walking distance, if not biking. Even still, they offer shuttles for those that don't want to provide their own transportation. Although a little pricey, the flexibility is worth it.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is very diverse. Many almost on campus style developments as well as individual houses you can rent with friends.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Orlando is a large area so there is a large variety of options, ranging in prices and quality. It is what you get. The more you pay either you are very close to campus or your housing is extremely good quality. Average quality is thr most popular and thus you pay average rates.

By a majority vote, living off campus isn't just the right way to go, it's the only way. UCF is a huge commuter school with most of its students living off campus in either apartments or houses. In and around the UCF area, it's easy to find what suits you and your budget. Many complexes are geared towards student housing and offer individual leases for each tenant. Apartments can offer you what dorms can't-your own washer and dryer, your own bedroom and bathroom, balconies, clubhouses, and many other amenities.

Apartments are conveniently located next to campus; some are as close as one mile away. Living off campus is convenient and more private. Off-campus living is very social; many students meet their friends through being neighbors and bumping into each other in their complexes. Off-campus living is strongly recommended.
