|Aug 2014||Fall 2014 Room Assignments Completed|
Each year we receive approximately 12,000 housing applications for students who apply to UF and await admission. Students who are admitted, offered a contract, complete the contract by the established deadline have the opportunity to self-sect rooms during room sign up. Based off the total number of applications we categorize the room selections dates (which are based off the students application date and establish a “place in line”) to project the room availability they will have when room selection begins. These categories are:
Later Application Date: Students may have limited rooms to self-select from and may be manually assigned to spaces which open from cancellations, permanent spaces, or temporary overflow housing. Students assigned to some temporary spaces will be required to move to a permanent space. Information regarding temporary assignments will be communicated only if you are assigned to a temporary space.

You can also choose a roommate based on room availability. A room will be manually assigned if availability becomes limited or you choose not to select a room.
Consider a Triple Room! Triple rooms range in price depending on the residence hall. You can live more economically by living in a triple room. Triples can present you with the opportunity to room with TWO of your friends or to meet two new friends. Triple rooms provide the opportunity to experience different lifestyles and the opportunity to learn many new things about yourself.
There are three types of triples:
- Late application triples: Approximately 100 students each fall semester self select or are assigned space in late application triple rooms at the time space in permanent rooms is no longer available. Late application triples are standard air-conditioned rooms that have the option of being de-tripled. If a student moves out of the room due to room transfer or cancellation it will automatically be converted to a double room for the remainder of the contract period. The rental rate for a double room will be assessed to the remaining students. Extra furniture cannot be removed from late application triple rooms.
- Economy Triple: Approximately 200 students each fall semester self select or are assigned space in economy triple rooms. Rooms are standard air-conditioned rooms that have will remain as triples all year. Students who are looking for an affordable option or are looking for a space to room with three roommates often choose this option. Economy triple rooms cannot be doubled.
- Permanent Triple: Rooms are for continuing students and freshmen. The rooms are designed to be triple rooms and are often much larger. Loft units with desks/wardrobes are provided. Permanent triple rooms cannot be doubled.
