Non-UCF Scholars/Interns

Congratulations on your summer internship! As an intern in Orlando, the University of Central Florida is an ideal location for your stay. In contrast to hotels or typical apartments, intern housing provided by UCF offers the opportunity to save money while staying in a convenient location with no long-term commitment. We have two convenient locations: the Lake Claire Apartments located on our main campus at 12580 Gemini Blvd N. Orlando, FL 32816, and the Rosen College Apartments located at our Rosen campus at 9907 Universal Blvd, Orlando, FL 32819. These academically-focused environments foster community and support success.

Each apartment has four single bedrooms, with shared living space that includes basic furniture: stove, refrigerator, table, four chairs, love seat, coffee table, extra-long twin beds, dresser, and a desk. Each bedroom is keyed independently. Utilities, TV cable and internet access are included as well. For a closer look, at the Lake Claire Apartments, click here.

Hurricane Awareness

If a hurricane was ever to target the Orlando area, you need to know what will be expected of you, and what you can expect from the University.

Q: Where will I go during a hurricane?

A: If a hurricane was expected to hit the University area, UCF would be closed, and you will be encouraged to go home. However, if you are unable to go home, or if you believe that you will be in more danger by doing so, you may remain at UCF and go to the university designated shelter. However, you must contact the duty station to inform the staff that you are staying.

Q: Will I be allowed to remain in the residence halls/apartments?

A: No one will be allowed to remain in the residence halls/apartments if UCF decides to open a shelter on campus. Your CA/RA will be informed that a shelter has been opened. At that time, the CA/RA will evacuate everyone from the buildings to the shelter, where you will have to remain until it is safe to return to the halls.

Q: What should I bring with me if I have to go to the shelter?

A: You should bring the following items with you to the shelter: Three days’ worth of clothes, a sleeping bag or blanket, a pad to sleep on, toiletries, any prescription medication, important papers, snacks to eat, a small radio with batteries, a flashlight, portable cell phone charger and small games. Things that will not be allowed in the shelter: pets, alcohol, tobacco products or weapons.

Safety First

Use the following tips to stay safe:

  • KEEP DOORS LOCKED at all times, even if you are inside the room, or leaving for only a few seconds. Lock the windows, as well.
  • NEVER PROP DOORS OPEN because anyone could walk in for any reason.
  • USE THE PEEPHOLE to see who is at the door. Ask for a picture ID before letting a staff member enter. Never let strangers into your room or building.
  • REPORT BROKEN LOCKS, doors, windows, and lights to the the Lake Claire Apartments Office (407-882-5000) or Rosen Apartments Office (407-284-6000).
  • DO NOT LEAVE YOUR KEY UNATTENDED. Never loan your keys or ID to anyone, even friends.
  • DRAW CURTAINS AND BLINDS at night, whether you are home or not. It keeps thieves from seeing into your room.
  • KEEP MONEY AND JEWELRY locked in a safe place. Always keep all of your valuables out of sight.
