4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is great even if you don't have a car

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I have looked into off-campus housing nearby UCF main campus, and the options were very limited. It is very hard to find a regular apartment complex that is more like a home rather than an obvious boarding location for students.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus non affiliated campus is a lot better than affiliated housing. They are run by college students so they dont care or usually know what they are doing. Security is never enforced and parking is always an issue for visitors or people who lived there. Off campus non affiliated is in my opinion a lot better.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Lots of crime in the area, I would not recommend it.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The ones that I have seen are much cheaper than the ones on campus but has more perks than the ones on campus.

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.
