Purchasing a Florida Prepaid College Plan is a great way to cover Tuition and most fees, but what about housing costs? That’s where the University Dormitory Plan comes in. If you purchase a 2 + 2 Florida Plan, 1-Year Florida University Plan or 4-Year Florida University Plan, the University Dormitory Plan is available for up to two years (with a 2 + 2 Florida Plan), one year (with a 1-Year Florida University Plan) or up to four years (with a 4- Year Florida University Plan). And just like with other Prepaid Plans, you have the option to pay in a lump sum, over a 55-month term, or monthly until the child enters college.

The University Dormitory Plan is available in 1-year increments and covers the cost of a standard, double-occupancy dormitory room at any of Florida’s 12 State Universities. Dormitory options and availability vary from school to school, and the plan does not guarantee placement in a dormitory room. The amount covered by this plan can also be used at some fraternity or sorority houses (if those houses are overseen by the State University) or dormitory housing costs at other colleges nationwide.
