The Department of Housing and Residence Life accepts the Florida Prepaid College Plan (FPCP) dormitory contracts. FPCP dormitory contract is different than the Florida Prepaid College Plan for tuition. One unit of FPCP dormitory contract will cover the cost of a shared room in the Apollo, Libra, Nike, and Hercules communities for either the fall or spring semester. It will not cover any costs for summer housing.
Students with FPCP dormitory contracts may live anywhere on campus. If you choose to live in a facility with a rental rate more expensive than a shared room rate (Lake Claire Apartments, Nike Apartments, Hercules Apartments, the Neptune Community, Rosen College Apartments, Towers at Knights Plaza, or NorthView), you are responsible for the difference in rental rates.
Does having a FPCP dormitory contract guarantee me a space in on-campus housing?
We will give you a space in on-campus housing if you apply for housing by March 1 and indicated that you have a FPCP dormitory contract.
Returning On-Campus Residents (sophomores, juniors, seniors)
We will give you a space in on-campus housing if you apply by the date set for returning residents to apply. This means that you will be exempt from any lottery. You must have at least one unit of FPCP dormitory contract in order to get the lottery exemption.
How will you know I have a FPCP dormitory contract?
When you complete the online housing application on myUCF, there will be a section to indicate your FPCP dormitory contract number on the Housing Application Payment page (see screen shot below). Please make sure to put in the correct number for your plan and press the Submit button. You will see that your prepayment will change to $0 and the page will indicate that the prepayment will be billed to the Florida Prepaid Dormitory Plan. You should then select the Next button at the bottom of the page. FPCP will be billed for your housing prepayment and housing rental amounts.
Can I use my FPCP dormitory contact to make the housing prepayment?
Yes, you can. FPCP pays prepayments for one given semester to one university.
Can my FPCP dormitory contract be used at The Pointe at Central or Knights Circle, UCF affiliated housing?
Yes, you can request that your benefit be paid directly to The Pointe at Central or Knights Circle by contacting the property manager.
What happens when there is insufficient space to accommodate all students with FPCP dormitory contracts?
Students must request a no space letter from the Department of Housing and Residence Life. The student contract holder then submits the letter to the FPCP and requests a refund. Students will receive an amount equal to the amount being paid for a dormitory space on campus. The refund will be provided for two semesters so that it may be used to offset the costs associated with off-campus living.
