We are excited to announce that this year, UCF Housing and Residence Life is debuting online room sign-up for incoming first-year students. This means that incoming students with confirmed housing applications will be able to select their exact building, suite/apartment, and room, along with their roommate group.
Instructions for the online room sign-up process, including appointment times, will be communicated to students with confirmed housing applications via email in May and June for Fall signup. It is very important that students check their KnightsMail frequently and ensure they are receiving emails from firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students can fill out a profile questionnaire about important topics such as room cleanliness, bedtimes, sharing food/items, dietary restrictions, and guests. Once they have completed the profile questions, they may search for roommate options based on their answers to the profile questions, or let our Housing Portal system suggest some roommate matches. See the roommates page for more details.
What if I miss my appointment time, or I am confirmed for housing after the sign-up window?
Students who do not participate in the online sign-up process will be assigned rooms by our staff, based on their application preferences and room availability.
How does sign-up work for roommate groups?
Every roommate group has a leader. This role is assigned in the housing portal and can be passed to any member of the group (we suggest choosing the group member with the earliest appointment time). Once a leader is chosen, they may enter the process at their appointment time, and select an apartment for themselves and their roommate group.
Do I have to have a roommate group?
Students may participate in room selection as an individual or as a roommate group.
What about Living Learning Communities (LLCs)?
Students with approved LLC applications will only be able to select rooms within the designated floors for their LLC. Roommate group members must also be approved for the same LLC. Not all LLC communities will participate in online room sign-up, so be sure to read your email instructions carefully.
