Please review all move-in information including what do do before you arrive, on move-in day, and after check-in. Make a plan for weather, parking, and unpacking to make your day as smooth as possible! We encourage each student to download the UCF mobile app before arriving on campus.

The Community Living Guide (CLG) provides a comprehensive overview of the rules, expectations, and behaviors that all residents are expected to follow. We strongly encourage students, families, and guests to review this document as well. Is serves as a valuable resource for understanding the guidelines and fostering a positive living environment.
Your room and roommate information is available to you in the housing portal.
Please note that rooms and roommate information may change due to cancellations, renovations, etc. Check your housing portal to confirm your room assignment before you travel to campus.
Your UCF ID Card serves as both your residential community and room access key. First Time in College (FTIC) or Transfer student will receive their UCF Cards during their scheduled Orientation date. It is crucial to have your UCF Card before your scheduled move-in appointment, as it will be required at the check-in table for proper encoding. We recommend visiting Card Services during their operating hours to obtain your card prior to your scheduled Housing check-in. You can find Card Services’ regular hours of operation and contact info on this page.
Please make sure that you view your payments 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 select Option 3 to speak with an accountant.
When you receive your room assignment online through the myUCF portal, you will also find your mailing address. It is crucial that any mail sent to you at UCF includes YOUR first and last name along with the PO Box number. During the move-in process, you will receive information regarding the location of your PO Box within your community and instructions on obtaining your PO Box key.
If you need to send a package to campus prior to your arrival, please make it is sent no more than a week prior to your move-in date. We will securely hold your package if it is addressed correctly.

UCF Parking Permits are now virtual, meaning all vehicles parked on campus, including those in residential areas, require a virtual parking pass. During move-in weekend, parking regulations will be strictly enforced.

Students should purchase a virtual parking pass for the vehicle that will remain on campus prior to their arrival for move-in. For detailed information on student parking and how to purchase a UCF parking pass, please visit UCF Parking Services by clicking here.
All students residing on-campus are required to either complete an immunization form that provides documentation of vaccination for Bacterial Meningitis and Hepatitis B or sign a waiver declining the vaccines. This requirement must be fulfilled before attending Orientation and registering for classes. It is in addition to the state requirement for Measles and Rubella immunization.
Failure to submit the required documentation to UCF Student Health Services will result in the student being unable to move into housing for the summer or fall semester. The updated immunization form, which includes Bacterial Meningitis and Hepatitis B, can be downloaded from this link.

If you would like to grant permission for our department to share your protected personal information with a designated individual (usually a parent or family member), you can complete the FERPA Release Authorization form.

Simply navigate to Student Self Service, then select Housing, and finally access the Housing Portal. It’s important to note that authorization is optional and not required for the move-in process.
