Valencia is a commuter school and therefore does not offer student housing. However, there are plenty of housing options around any of our campuses. We also hold annual housing fairs on campus and provide rental information and roommate listings through the Student Development office.

Location is one of the most important factors to consider when selecting housing. Valencia has four
campus locations throughout Orange and Osceola counties. Once you decide which campus you plan to take the majority of your courses, you can look for a place near there.
