Non-UCF Scholars/Interns


University of Central Florida officials continue to monitor the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The health and safety of our conference participants and staff remain our top priority, along with the larger University community. Updated requirements and risk reducing protocols are still being determined; we will add the new guidelines to the webpage once they have been finalized.

Thank you for your cooperation as we navigate this evolving event together. For more details about UCF’s response to the virus, please click here.


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 and internet access are included as well.

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.

If a hurricane was expected to hit the University area, UCF would be closed, and you will be encouraged to go home.

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

You should bring the following items with you to the ride-out location: 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 ride-out location: pets, alcohol, tobacco products or weapons.
