How to apply for housing…

1) To apply for housing, you will need your PID and password to access the myUCF gateway. Log into
my.ucf.edu, then select “Student Self Service” then “Housing” then “Apply.” On the housing options page,
select the fall 2012 and spring 2013 Orlando main campus option.

2) A $250 prepayment is required for the fall housing agreement. If you are attending the university in the
summer then a separate $100 prepayment is required for the summer housing agreement.

3) If you have a Florida Prepaid Dormitory Account, please select the box in the online housing agreement.
The Florida Prepaid Dormitory Account will not cover summer housing.

4) You will receive a notification email that your agreement has been received. You can also view your
housing agreement status online in myUCF. Go to “Student Self Service” then “Housing” then “Status.”

5) If a space is available for you, then you will receive a housing confirmed date. Confirmed dates are given
out based on the date you apply for housing, availability of space, and when you enter UCF. Do not assume
that you have housing on the Orlando main campus unless you receive a housing confirmed date. You
can view your confirmed date in myUCF on the housing status screen.

7) Students can preference one roommate using the online housing preference system in myUCF. The
roommate you preference must be in the LEAD Scholars Program if you select LEAD Scholars housing. Log
into my.ucf.edu then select “Student Self Service” then “Housing” then “Preferences.” You should also list
“Nike and Hercules Double Room” for your first choice and LEAD Scholars in the Special Interest Housing
menu. The online housing preference system is open until May 1, 2012.

8) In order to be considered for LEAD Scholars housing, you MUST have completed an online housing
agreement and received a housing confirmed date! LEAD Scholars cannot hold a room for you. LEAD
Scholars rooms will be filled on a first come, first served basis with priority given to admitted LEAD
Scholars with early housing agreement received dates.

Please contact Dr. Stacey Malaret, Director for LEAD Scholars, if you have any questions at
Stacey.Malaret@ucf.edu or 407-823-2223.
The LEAD Scholars Program has reserved a special session for LEAD Scholars on June 18-19,
2012 in hope that you, along with other LEAD Scholars, will be able to attend at that time.

This orientation session is a special detailed workshop for you to find out more about the program
and will provide you the opportunity to schedule classes in advance of other entering students. You
will also have the opportunity to meet other scholars and our staff during this orientation. Please
register for this special orientation opportunity as soon as possible (registration begins February 1,
2012), as open seats will be opened for non-LEAD Scholars starting in late spring.

Burnett Honors College Students: If you have been admitted to the Burnett Honors College
you are required to attend the Honors Orientation on June 7-8, 2012 instead. The same LEAD
Scholars information will be available to you on June 7-8 as well. (Honors students may contact

the summer. In order to register for your orientation session, you must first pay your enrollment

What if I cannot attend the LEAD Scholars orientation? No problem! LEAD Scholars will have a
