Most Frequently Asked Questions

When should I sign my lease for Fall move-in at UCF apartments?

Student apartments in Orlando can help you reserve your space for an August move-in date up to 12-months in advance. You'll find the best apartment deals and the most availability earlier in the season, as soon as January. We highly recommend signing a lease before March, as availability is limited in the UCF area and apartments start to sell out early. You can use the Check Availability tool on to check whether your favorite floor plan is still available for Fall move-in.

Can I tour apartments near UCF virtually?

Yes, you can absolutely tour apartments without visiting in person! We have added video tours to many 407apartments listings so you can tour from home while honoring distancing recommendations. Did you know you can also schedule personal virtual tours with the leasing team at your favorite apartment? Just use the Schedule A Tour button to set up a day and time that works best for you.

If my roommate does not pay their UCF apartment rent, will I be responsible?

One of the major perks of choosing UCF off-campus housing is the fact that student communities in the UCF area offer individual, by-the-bedroom leases. With an individual lease, you'll only ever be responsible for your portion of the rent and utilities. As a bonus, most individually leased apartments offer roommate matching, so if you haven't found your future roomies yet, they'll be able to match you with students who have a similar lifestyle.

What is the parking situation at UCF off-campus housing?

Most off-campus apartment communities around The University of Central Florida have plenty of parking spots for their residents. You'll find a mix of parking garages, flat lot parking, and covered (car port) options at UCF student housing. Parking passes for UCF campus can add up each semester, so if you're looking to save some money be sure to look for apartments on the UCF Shuttle Route, which provides free rides to UCF campus for student ID holders. Don't forget to ask if parking at your future apartment is included with the monthly rent, as it may be an additional fee.
