Get Involved


Summer Housing Leadership Institute (HLI)

Those who attend the Housing Leadership Institute (HLI) enjoy a week-long immersive leadership experience. HLI is created by students for students. The institute serves as a crash course on leadership and how to get involved on campus, and is also an excellent way to meet new people before the academic year starts. HLI also provides leadership driven students the opportunity to gain an early start in getting involved on campus.

HLI is free and all meals are provided to the students. Throughout the five days of HLI, there will be fun programs, guest speakers, nightly entertainment, and delicious food for all participants. Different events will take place in different parts of campus, so you can get to know campus before classes begin! Our HLI staff is working around the clock to bring you the best experience possible! Selected HLI participants will be able to move in early free of charge due to HLI’s choice in philanthropy. HLI participants will volunteer for a move-in shift at the end of the week so students can give back to the community and help fellow students. Please check back closer to summer for more information and dates.

This opportunity will be open to students who will be living on campus for Fall 2020.


Residence Hall Association (RHA)

RHA is an on-campus organization which strives to provide residents with the UCF experience through programming and leadership opportunities. This organization sponsors events on campus, provides support for bettering the residence hall living experience, and holds meetings with Area Councils, which lead over each community.




Housing and Residence Life hosts campus and community-wide LINK programs throughout the year. LINK (Learning and Interacting with New Knights) is a program developed by Student Development and Enrollment Services. It’s a program designed to get first-time-in-college new Knights out of their rooms to experience and interact with the UCF community.

The main focus of LINK is to get new Knights out having fun, meeting people, and getting connected to UCF. Through LINK, new Knights will be exposed to experiences that will enhance their success and satisfaction at UCF. LINK programs range from academic-focused programs about study skills and time management to social interactive programs.
