1. Apply

If you’re planning to live on campus, submit a housing application and $25 non-refundable fee as soon as possible. Your Housing Application Date secures your place line for room selection. Apply as soon as you’ve applied to UF for the most options. If you wait until you’re accepted to UF, you will have limited options for campus housing. On campus housing is not guaranteed for incoming students.

2. Contract

After students have been admitted to the university, we will begin offering housing contracts. Submit your contract and advanced rent payment by your due date to guarantee a housing space. If you are under 18 at the time you are offered a housing contract, parents MUST also accept the terms and conditions of the housing contract. Once you have completed your contract(s) you will be guaranteed a space for the applicable terms.

3. Room Selection

All housing assignments will begin in May for incoming students. Students will be assigned by a housing staff member in order of application date and according to student preferences.

4. Pay Your Rent

Rent is due in full prior to the beginning of each semester. Students with enough financial aid are eligible for a rent deferment. This is different than a tuition deferment.
