University of Central Florida Off Campus Apartments
Ready for an Apartment near UCF?
University of Central Florida, home of the black and gold Knights, has the second largest student body in the US, with a total enrollment of more than 56,000 students. The UCF campus itself is also unique, one of only two concentric campus designs in the nation. Makes sense… a school with that many students needs an effective campus design to organize all the movements of people. Especially in the few minutes between classes.
One of the most notable aspects of UCF life is its homecoming tradition. The Friday before each homecoming game, students participate in the “Spirit Splash,” which involves dipping into a giant pool.
Looking to Live Off-Campus?
UCF has some pretty interesting dorm names. However, only about 20% of the students choose to live in Hercules, Knight’s Plaza, or Nike. The rest are on their own, doing their own thing, and livin’ it up in Orlando. If you are looking for more personal space in your living area, you’ll be happy to know that there are hundreds of properties in Orlando at affordable prices. Since you’re in college now, make sure you have a quiet study area, as well as a bedroom that’s far from noise and disturbances.

UCF is a Magic Carpet Ride
The UCF campus is just northeast of downtown Orlando, twenty minutes away. Students of UCF will never be bored, which may already be an understatement. Have you ever imagined you’d take a roadtrip with your friends to Disneyland in LA? Well, UCF students are spoiled with Disney WORLD right in their backyard. Seaworld isn’t too far, either! For after-hour activities, there are a few bars/nightclubs around campus where UCF students love to flock. The ones you should really check out are Knight Library and Deko.

I've got dogs. What are the best places in Orlando for being outdoors with pets?
While not officially a dog park per se, Lake Eola in downtown Orlando is especially pet friendly. The park consists of a one mile walking path, several dog-friendly restaurants, and of course the lovely lake itself. Lake Eola also hosts a few dog-related events over the year, including Paws in the Park, a fundraising pet walk around the park. Avalon Dog Park, a division of Avalon Park, is a small but charming, leash-free play area for pooches, with a grassy area for playing, sidewalk for walking or running, and restrooms and benches available for its two-legged visitors.

i dont have no kids.and whats neighborhood is right for me?and how much money for deposit for 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom?
Downtown Orlando is a good choice for you because it is the hub of central Florida. There are many entertainment options here, such as theatrical performances, concerts, and professional and college sports. You may also consider an apartment in Altamonte Springs. It is close to Interstate 4 and therefore easy to get into Orlando, making this Seminole County City a popular destination for residents. Living here also affords convenient access to shopping, parks and entertainment venues. Deposit is typically equal to the first month’s rent, which, for a 1 bedroom apartment in Orlando, ranges from $600 to $800.
