Off-Campus Housing: Not bad. Kind of expensive.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Great apartments, wonderful people around you, and very close to the school.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Depending on how much you want to spend on off-campus housing is what determines your safety and proximity level to main campus. Although, nowhere is truly safe near a college campus. The pro of living off-campus is not having to deal with dorms and roommates in your space. The con is the unorganized bus shuttles, depending on where you live, coming late or coming early and never leaving to drive to campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
