Congratulations on your summer internship opportunity!
As you prepare for your short-term internship in the Heart of the Gator Nation, consider our affordable housing option specifically designed for interns! We offer apartment style housing during the summer months at a weekly, fixed rate.
All interns are lodged in apartment-style, single or double rooms. These apartment-style rooms are furnished with a kitchenette, living/dining area, private bedrooms (bed frame, XL full mattress, dresser/wardrobe, desk & chair per guest) and bathroom.
Inclusions & Eligibility
The rate for Intern Housing can be viewed on our Rates page. Please note that there is a one-time $100.00 processing fee and uneven final weeks will be prorated based on the daily rate listed.
Intern Housing, which runs from early May to early August, includes bedroom and bathroom, all utilities, DHNet (Internet) and cable TV access. However, it is important to note that kitchens are not stocked with cooking utensils, no television is provided, and laundry facilities are pay-per-load. Interns should work with their UF Host departments to establish UFIDs, Gator 1 Cards, and on-campus parking passes during their program. Mail services are not included and any mail received will be returned to sender. Guests are encouraged to establish a P.O. Box or request that their mail be received at their UF program location.
To be eligible for Intern Housing, a guest may not be a full-time summer student at the University of Florida and must be 18 years of age or older. An official letter must be submitted on letterhead, signed by the guest’s internship coordinator, which clearly states the internship program start date, end date, and location. It is not required that the guest be receiving credit for the internship.
A completed contract and full payment must be received at least 7 days prior to your contracted check-in date (unless otherwise agreed). Room keys will not be distributed until full payment is received. Full-time University of Florida summer school students are ineligible for Intern Housing with Conference Services and should contact Undergraduate Assignments or Graduate and Family Housing with summer housing inquiries.
Please note that any guest 17 years of age or younger must be accompanied by a legal guardian. Also, a completed contract and full payment must be received at least 7 days prior to your contracted check-in date (unless otherwise agreed). Room Keys will not be distributed until full payment is received.
Intern Housing Program Dining Plans are available beginning in early May at Broward Dining Center, and beginning in early June at Gator Corner Dining Center. Dining plans allow 3 all-you-can-eat meals plus flex bucks at an affordable, daily rate. Meals may only be used in the Dining Halls during operating hours. Meal plans may not be expanded or reduced, and cash may not be added to Intern dining cards. Dining Hall and store hours are set by Dining Services and may be limited during weekends, semester breaks and holidays. Flex bucks may be used at participating locations. Please contact ConferenceServices@ufsa.ufl.edu for more information.

In order to reserve your Intern Housing accommodations follow these easy steps:
- Complete the Intern Housing Application
- A Conference Services Representative will send you a confirmation email within 48 business hours from ConferenceServices@ufsa.ufl.edu.
- Provide necessary information via email to the Conference Services Representative.
- Once all necessary information is gathered, the Conference Services Representative will compile your contract and invoice and send it to you via email.
- Review your contract and invoice. Then print, sign, scan and return the signature page of your contract via email to ConferenceServices@ufsa.ufl.edu.
- A Conference Services Representative will complete the signature page and email you instructions for payment.

Payment must be received in full in order for you to receive keys at check-in. Conference Services will provide each Intern a payment contact after an Intern Housing contract has been completed. If a third-party will be providing payment for the reservation, the final invoice and payment instructions will need to be forwarded to the third-party by the Intern.
Once a contract is completed, payments may be made between 8:00am and 3:00pm, Monday through Friday. Payment may be made by electronic journal transfer, check, credit card, money order or cash. If you are paying via Journal Transfer, you will need to provide your chart field information via email clearly indicating what reservation you are paying for and the invoice number. Money order and cash payments must be made in person at the Main Housing Office.
