We aim to make your move-in experience wonderful. Your check-in begins before you arrive on campus. Please review all move-in information including: driving directions, parking, signage and station descriptions, move-in volunteers and room set up. Additionally, we suggest you dress comfortably and bring water as it is quite hot in Orlando in August. Lastly, anticipate rain during this time of the year.

The Community Living Guide (CLG) outlines the rules, expectations and behaviors that all residents are expected to abide by. Violations of the Community Living Guide can result in student sanctioning ranging from warnings to housing termination. We encourage parents and guardians to review this document as well. Learn more about how you can make the most of your on-campus living experience by reading our Community Living Guide.
Summer room and roommate information will be available at the myUCF portal in May. Fall room and roommate information will be available at the myUCF portal in June.
Please note that rooms and roommate information may change due to cancellations, renovations, etc.
Please make sure that you view your charges online at the myUCF portal as a paper bill will not be mailed to you. Note that if your account shows enough anticipated financial assistance to cover the cost of your housing, your payment is deferred until your financial aid is disbursed. However, if you show a balance, it must be paid by the due date.
If you have questions or concerns regarding payment information, please call the Department of Housing and Residence Life at 407-823-4663 and ask to speak with an accountant.
When you receive your room assignment online at the myUCF portal, you will also see your mailing address. It is very important that any mail sent to you at UCF be addressed with YOUR first and last name and PO Box number. During the move-in process you will receive information on where your PO Box is located in your community and how to get your PO Box key.
If you need to send a package to campus prior to your arrival, please make sure to send it no more than a week prior to your move-in. We will hold your package for you if it is addressed correctly.

Parking permits are available for purchase through Parking and Transportation Services. Please wait to purchase your permit until move-in weekend because your room assignment may change. The type of student permit you purchase is available here.
Register your vehicle online at http://parking.ucf.edu/permits/.
All students living on-campus must either complete an immunization form that documents vaccination for Bacterial Meningitis and Hepatitis B or sign a waiver declining the vaccine. This requirement must be completed prior to Orientation and registration for classes and is in addition to the state requirement for Measles and Rubella.
Any student who has not submitted the documentation to UCF Student Health Services will not be able to move into housing for summer or fall. The updated immunization form that includes Bacterial Meningitis and Hepatitis B is available for download here.
For more information, please contact UCF Student Health Services.
Some homeowner’s insurance policies may cover belongings of a student living on-campus, so parents should check with their insurance company on this option. You can also purchase a Renter’s Insurance policy through various insurance companies.
Please note that UCF and the Department of Housing and Residence Life is not responsible for a student’s belongings in the event of damage, fire, sprinkler discharge, hurricanes, etc., per the terms and conditions of the housing agreement (see section 11. Limit of Liability of the agreement terms and conditions). Students are encouraged to obtain their own personal and property loss insurance.
