2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Not So Great. The housing is cheap, but so is the housing. You get what you pay for.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Pretty Fun – Orlando is a main tourist attraction, so being at The University of Central Florida puts me right in the middle of a hot-spot. Minus the amounts of 'drinking clubs' in the area, there's normally always something fun to do.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Many Choices – When looking for off campus housing we looked at everything close. They were to expensive. All had gyms (which we have at school) why pay twice. Had to share bathrooms or rent went up. Only positive is bus comes and goes.

2 College Junior

Campus Food: The food is expensive everywhere, and its just average food. I go to Subway because it is the cheapest. Being in college I can't really afford to eat on campus often because the prices are so high.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Never Had a Problem – I have never felt unsafe at UCF. They have the emergency poles everywhere and the campus is always lit up. Never had a problem

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: UCF is a relatively new school, so only few buildings have even needed any remodeling. It is sometimes confusing to navigate the campus sometimes due to its odd shape. Our gym has just been expanded this last year and has equipment to handle the crowds. However, there is always construction somewhere on campus--Under Construction Forever.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: A laptop is indescribably important to most students at UCF. Classes are spread across campus and it is always an advantage to be mobile. Wireless availability is decent for the size of campus. On-campus housing uses wired-in Ethernet. There are print labs free for students in the union.

3 College Senior

Technology: It cost o pring but in the student union they offer free printing. The only downfall is that there is always such a long wait. Convenient if you have the time.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I don't stay in student off-campus apartments just a regular apartment. The place is nice but a little pricey beingt that it is not that big.

1 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Expensive but Unworthy – UCF off campus housing is so expensive students have to move away from the UCF to afford the cost of tuition and living expenses. Sophomore year I paid 560 for rent, I am currently paying 580 for rent, and next semester they are increasing their rent to $600. Now, including the rent increasing every year spontaneously all students are required to pay for overages if you go over the allotted electricity and water amount. One month my roommates and I left for home and returned to $55 of overages. The overages amounts are randomly calculated they will not let you know how you went over.

4 College Junior

Local Area: Is This a School or Hotel?? UCF first captured my attention because of its location, Orlando the magic city. After stepping on campus, I was mentally sold. There is so much offered to its students such as hair salon, great food court, and social Wednesday's. There is literally something for everyone to indulge in if you are a coffee drinker UCF has the best cafe-Starbucks to correct your caffeine fix. The campus has that attraction and shopping atmosphere for students to kick back after an all-niter.

5 College Senior

Majors: I Love Elementary Education – I would love to do it all over again if I could. Yet, I am pretty excited about going out into the work force to create a classroom of my own. The university has helped me to feel very educated and prepared for what is to come with my careeer in the future.

2 College Senior

Parking: I usually come to campus at least 30-40 minutes before class starts due to the parking situation being so crazy. Most parking lots are far from the classes.

2 College Freshman

Parking: Parking is terrible. The school keeps building garages but its just not enough. You'll have to leave your home extra early to make it on time to class if you have to find a parking spot. Just walk or take the shuttle if you live off campus.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Some of the best clubs around. Located suprisingly close to campus. Clubs and parties of all varieties for whatever type of music you may be into.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Alafya Trial Is the BEST!!! There is a great variety of restaurants around campus, especially on Alafya Trial, the street located right next to the school. You can find any restaurant with any type of foo that you may be craving for. And everything is so CHEAP!!! Amazing for students on a budget.

5 College Senior

Transportation: Free shuttle transportation is provided for off-campus student housing.

5 College Senior

Diversity: There are students from many different backgrounds. The University of Central Florida represents many different cultures.

5 College Senior

Weather: only sometimes does it downpour. usually being on campus is pleasant but its the florida heat you really have to deal with!

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Great Dining Off-Campus – There are numerous places to eat off campus right across the street. They are all college cost friends to students, most have free wi-fi for studying while eating. The variety of different places to eat is versatile as well.

3 College Senior

Administration: Not Terrible – Drinking can get you in trouble but generally if you don't make a huge deal or act clearly drunk you should be okay. You have less trouble drinking off-campus but keep in mind that the university's police department has a 5 mile jurisdiction around the campus in any given direction. They are very serious about traffic infractions so speeding, texting and driving, and running red lights are heavily fined.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: There are several apartment complexes on the shuttle route to and from campus. The rates generally include utilities which is nice. The best part is there are more apartments going up very close to campus too which will make finding an apartment even easier.

3 College Senior

Local Area: Busy, Busy, Busy – There is so much to do around campus. Being close to 3 different theme parks and several malls and tourist attractions affords students a practically endless supply of activities. There are monthly events on campus that are always fun experiences. There are always games on the intramural fields that allow students to participate in a range of different sports and there are always games to go to and enjoy.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: In General, Guys and Girls – Most of the guys are into longboarding. Most are fit especially since I live near the gym. Most are pretty chill. Otherwise the other ones are nerdy looking, but they are nice. The girls vary. Most are attractive. They are sweet. Most are smart. I hang with the crowd that likes to hookah, and they are pretty chill.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Nursing at Nike – For my major, I am in a special program for nursing where about thirty-six of us live in a living learning community. The first semester consisted of sharing an sls class. It has been the best experience and inspiration to succeed in my major.

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!
