Frequently Asked Questions

How do I apply?

Log in to myUCF and navigate to Student Self Service > Housing > Apply. Follow the on screen instructions. You can find detailed instructions here.

How will room sign-up work?

Room sign-up will be done online via the Housing Portal in myUCF, and those participating will be able to choose their exact building, apartment, and bedroom. Residents who have confirmed applications will receive detailed instructions on how to complete room sign-up online, so it will be important to read the email communication regarding the process.

How do I request a roommate?

For residents participating in same room sign-up in Towers and NorthView, you will have the opportunity to pull in roommates into any open spaces in your apartment after the same room sign-up period is over.

For residents participating in General Room Sign-Up, you will be able to pick a room with a group of up to 4 confirmed residents with your same agreement type.

Make sure that your roommate request completes their housing agreement and makes their prepayment on time so that you are eligible to sign-up together. Only those confirmed during Phase 1 will be eligible to be pulled in as roommates.

How do I request a 2/1 or 1/1 in Nike, Hercules, or the Towers?

At the end of the online room sign-up process, you will have the opportunity to enter your name in the 2/1 and 1/1 Lottery. Confirmed Towers applicants will be able to enter for a chance for a space in a 1/1 at the Towers. Confirmed Nike, Hercules, and Lake Claire applicants will be able to enter for a chance for a space in a 2/1 in Nike or Hercules.

Spaces in 2/1s and 1/1s are very limited, so not every student in the lottery will receive a space in a 2/1 or 1/1. Therefore, you must first select a space in a 4 bedroom apartment through room sign up even if you plan on entering the 2/1 and 1/1 Lottery.

What happens if I do not apply on time?

If you are confirmed during Phase 2, the Assignments team will assign you to a room based on your preferences and application date if availability allows. We do not guarantee that you will be placed in your first choice.

If you were not confirmed during either phase, or were unable to apply because we reached capacity, you may contact us to get your name on the Standby List. It is not guaranteed that space will become available.

Who do I contact if I have questions?

Email us at housing@ucf.edu including your name and UCFID, or call us at the Housing Administration Building at (407) 823-4663 to speak with an assignments team member.
