Living in a UCF residence hall or apartment gives you the opportunity to get involved in a community and enjoy many exciting experiences. The on-campus community helps you form lifelong friendships and lasting memories.
The Housing and Residence Life staff is here to assist you, but we recommend that you take the lead by participating, listening to others, sharing your experiences and knowledge, adhering to the community's expectations, and being a role model for others.

2016 Community Living Guide Addendum
Due to the safety concerns about the ignitability of hoverboards, effective immediately, hoverboards will not be allowed to be charged, operated, stored, or used in or around UCF owned, affiliated, or managed communities.
Students who currently have a hoverboard on campus will have until Wednesday, January 13, 2016, to remove the hoverboard from on-campus housing.
A “hoverboard” is a self-balancing scooter that looks much like a skateboard. However, a hoverboard is electronic, requiring a rechargeable battery to operate. There have been several very concerning incidents in which hoverboards have ignited fires, whether during normal operation or charging.
The National Association of Fire Marshals has issued a warning regarding several incidences of hoverboards catching fire and the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is in the midst of an investigation into the safety of hoverboards. Taking into account the safety concerns raised by these organizations and our commitment to your safety, UCF Housing and Residence Life has decided to be proactive and has temporarily banned the use of hoverboards in all university owned, affiliated and managed communities until further notice.
Thank you for your cooperation and collaboration in keeping our communities safe.
