4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived on campus my freshman year and had a great experience and I will always recommend living on campus for incoming freshman. Past freshman year I do not think its as good of an idea. It is very expensive and once you are adjusted to college life, you are better of spending your money elsewhere. It is much cheaper living off campus and the school provides constant shuttles to most of the neighboring apartment complexes.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: UCF offers the best on campus housing of all the Florida state schools. It's literally like a resort. There is no such thing as community bathrooms and by the second year here you usually have a pretty good chance of living in an apartment style dorm with your own room and a bathroom you have to share with only one other person. We also have cleaning service here that comes in once a week for the apartment dorms so that's also really nice.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I have resided in two housing communities Hercules and Neptune and both were excellent. The RAS are very helpful and knowledgeable. The dorms are well-kept and secured.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have never lived on campus, but I have friends who do and I have seen their dorms. They seem to be pretty well-kept and clean. One great advantage of living on campus is how close you are to your classes. You also don't have to worry about finding parking on campus, which can be a disaster.

Campus Housing: The housing is nice but you drastically overpay for it

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
