Students meeting certain extenuating circumstances will not be required to leave if approved.

Those circumstances include:

  • International students unable to travel
  • Residents without permanent housing
  • Residents with other hardships to be reviewed on a case by case basis

“Residents with an approved exception may be required to consolidate in a different location on campus,” the university said.

If you are currently living in UCF housing and believe you fit under one of the circumstances above you’re asked to request an exception to stay in on-campus housing by visiting the Housing Portal (myUCF > Student Self Service > Housing > Housing Portal).

This information applies to all residents, currently residing on campus that do not have a summer housing assignment. Residents that are not physically on campus at this time will receive information on when to return to campus.
