Offering smoke-free living is an increasing trend among apartment communities and an extra added perk for their residents. Choosing a community that supports this smoking ban will alleviate you from being exposed to secondhand smoke – whether it's from walking through clouds of smoke in the breezeways or smelling it as it wafts up from your downstairs neighbor. You won't even have to deal with cigarette butts littered on the property grounds, which is great for anyone who needs to walk their dog in the grass or at the on-site dog park.  

Besides the obvious benefits of living in smoke-free UCF apartments, you will have satisfaction in knowing that the tenant previous to you did not smoke either. Upon moving in, you will notice the crisp, clean smell of a smoke-free apartment. If you have ever moved into an apartment where the former tenant smoked, you know the difference. The community will try and change the carpets and paint the walls to rid the smell, but it always lingers. This is one of the great benefits about choosing a smoke-free property; knowing that your unit will never have the stench or odor of old smoke!
