University Dormitory Plan

Dormitory PlanPurchasing 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.

What’s Included

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.

Important Notes

The University Dormitory Plan is only available with the purchase of a 2 + 2 Florida Plan, 1-Year Florida University Plan or 4-Year Florida University Plan; it cannot be purchased separately. Start your application today. We will notify you of new plan prices when the next Open Enrollment period begins.


The University Dormitory Plan is designed to be used at a State University, but the amount covered by this plan can also be applied for dormitory housing costs nationwide. Also, other important flexibility considerations include:

  • If the child uses a scholarship to cover dormitory housing costs, the amount covered by the University Dormitory Plan, not just what you paid in, can be refunded or used to pay for dormitory housing costs not covered by the scholarship.
  • If the child applies on time for, but is not assigned, a dormitory room, the amount covered by the University Dormitory Plan, not just what you paid in, can be refunded.
  • The child has 10 years from the projected enrollment year selected on the application to use his/her University Dormitory Plan.

Who is eligible to purchase a University Dormitory Plan?

Students enrolled in the 2 + 2 Florida Plan are eligible to purchase up to two years of the University Dormitory Plan, students enrolled in the 1-Year Florida University Plan are eligible to purchase one year per 1-Year Florida University Plan, and students enrolled in the 4-Year Florida University Plan may purchase up to four years.

These students must be in the 11th grade or below when the University Dormitory Plan is purchased.

*Non-approved university-held housing – In addition to the approved dormitories listed above, the University Dormitory Plan may be used for any university-held housing. If the non-approved housing cost is greater than that of the approved standard double-occupancy dormitory room, the student is responsible for the additional cost.

**Private and Out-of-State College Housing – Students attending a private or out-of-state college can use their Prepaid dormitory plan benefits. The amount covered by the plan may be applied to dormitory housing costs nationwide. The student is responsible for housing costs that exceed the current average rate payable to a State University in Florida.

What housing expenses are covered?

The University Dormitory Plan is a Prepaid Plan designed to cover a standard, double-occupancy, air-conditioned dormitory room at a State University. This amount can also be applied to other university-held housing, including some fraternity and sorority housing. The University Dormitory Plan does not cover the cost of any board, e.g. meal plans, associated with the dormitory room.

Does a University Dormitory Plan guarantee the child a dormitory room?

No. Rooms are assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis, so there is no guarantee that the student will receive a room assignment.

What if the State University does not assign a dormitory room to a child with a University Dormitory Plan?

If the student applies on time for housing but does not get a room assignment, the Account Owner may request an unavailable dormitory refund. This refund is the amount covered by the plan, not just what you paid in.

What if my child does not use the Dormitory Plan?

All payments you’ve made into the plan can be refunded, or the University Dormitory Plan can be transferred to another eligible child/student with a Florida Prepaid College Plan.

When can I open a Florida Prepaid Plan?

You may enroll any time. We announce new pricing at the start of the annual Open Enrollment period. If you enroll outside of the Open Enrollment period, you will receive the pricing information for your plan when the next Open Enrollment period begins. Our prices may change from year to year. If you sign up before Open Enrollment and you are not satisfied with your plan price when Open Enrollment begins, let us know. We’ll help you select another plan or payment option to meet your goals and your budget.
