How to Apply

You are eligible to apply for campus housing after you complete an application for admission to UF and receive your 8-digit UFID number.

It is important to apply for campus housing early! Your Housing Application Date is the date you submit your housing application and the $25 non-refundable housing application fee. This date establishes your “place in line” to select your room and residence hall.

A UF housing application is not a guarantee that you will be offered housing if admitted to UF.

UF Housing & Residence Education will send freshman applicants housing information 1-2 weeks after they complete an admissions application. Any incoming student graduating with their high school diploma is considered a first-time freshman (even if they’re being reviewed as a Transfer student). Continuing residents will use their housing application date from when they first applied to UF Housing unless the application has expired. Applications are valid from Summer B to the Summer A semester(s).
