When looking at UCF apartments, floor level is something to definitely take into consideration. Most UCF apartment complexes are around three stories, but some could be more or less. There are no hard and fast rules for which floor is "best," per say. It's all about you and your comfort level at your UCF apartment. There are pros and cons to living on any floor: When living on the first floor of a UCF apartment, it will be easier for you to move big items like furniture and electronics into your new space. You'll most likely still need someone to help you, but they won't have to schlep things up and down the stairs of a UCF apartment. Thinking past move-in day of your UCF apartment, carrying groceries or laundry to and from your car will be easier if you're on the first floor. Something to be wary of, however, is that more break-ins occur on the first floor because those units are easier to access. You may also not want to keep the windows of your UCF apartment open for this same reason. You will also have two or more floors above your UCF apartment, and could possibly hear neighbors walking around at all hours of the night and day. You could still have this noise problem on the second floor of a UCF apartment. You will, however, be able to keep your windows open without fear of someone breaking into them from the outside of the building. Living on the second floor of a UCF apartment will require some stair time--up and down one flight whether you're coming or going. If you follow the logic I've applied for safeness in your UCF apartment, the higher up you go, then theoretically the top floor of your UCF apartment would be the safest. You also won't have to worry about hearing anyone above you. The worry (and the same goes for the second floor UCF apartment) is that you'll be the bad neighbor walking around loudly. I also wouldn't recommend the top floors of a UCF apartment if you like to work out in your apartment. Jumping up and down and lifting weights (with the possibility of dropping them) isn't conducive to living on the higher floors of a UCF apartment. Another thing to consider is pets: Do you have an animal you're going to need to let out every single day, multiple times a day? You're going to log extra steps at your UCF apartment letting your animal out. Do you want those steps to be on the ground floor of the building or above? And a last thing to consider when figuring out which floor of your UCF apartment to live on is the potential for things to inadvertently harm your apartment. If you're on the ground floor of a UCF apartment and someone above you springs a bathroom leak, it could be your UCF apartment that gets flooded and damaged. These are just a few things to think about when choosing which floor of your UCF apartment to live on.
