4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I loved living on campus. I lived at UCFs' Nike for two years and met amazing individuals. The staff held weekly events to meet other residents and were always attentive to our needs. Definitely a great place to live as a freshman in a new community.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I have never lived on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: What you'd expect around a university

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Nothing out of the norm. Don't drink underage on campus and you'll be fine.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Reach out to financial aid officers, your adviser, and anyone who can offer guidance throughout the process.

3 College Sophomore

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There are very many options for living on campus. Some of the dorms are concrete block and others are newer and feel like apartment living. Your experience depends on what type you choose.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Big variety, many options near each set of dorms. Not overly expensive.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Everything you need is within walking distance so you don't have to deal with finding parking. Instead of monthly payments, its one large payment. You learn the campus very quickly. Libra/Apollo is best for socializing and is closest to the center, but it's also the oldest. Nike/Hercules/Neptune are newer and closer to the pool and gym.

Off-Campus Housing: It's scary living in Orlando. There is always some type of crime going on.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: It's annoying that you have to pay overtime you want to have a good time. There really aren't any good parties like you see in movies. Everyone only goes to either the Pub or Library which gets very tiring after a couple of times.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are many great restaurants on campus, which is great! However, some of the restaurants are repeated, which gives us less variety (Subway, Domino's).

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived on campus when I first started attending UCF during the Summer B Term. I loved being so close to classes and everyone else. All those who live around me were freshman just like me. The only thing I didn't like was sharing a room and a bathroom with four strangers. My roommate had the worst body odor I've ever smelled, so I went through many bottles of air spray. I also didn't like to share a bathroom with four other guys, and that's self explanatory.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Stay away from campus crossings and sterling central (the marquee) everything else is pretty solid.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of pizza and fast food options. The further you are away from campus, the more variety there is. There is however a chipotle super close so that's a plus.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Don't do anything stupid...simple as that

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I never have issues with financial aid but I know people who always have issues. If you make sure you have your ducks in a row you should be fine. Don't wait to fill out your fafsa, do your verification if you need to and you'll be fine.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There's usually a party going on somewhere. If you know the right people, you'll know about the parties.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: It's one of those things where the food isn't that bad but it's also not that good either. It's also really convenient so there's that. Beggars can't be choosers.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: As long as you don't live in freshmen housing (apollo/libra) it is all fine. Those two in particular are pretty eh to say the least. I would say though that since it is freshmen housing, you'll definitely make friends fast. Those two dorm styles are also the cheapest. Once you get past those two housing styles, the quality skyrockets and there are better perks I would say.

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!
