CREC dormitory space is for UF students seeking a UF degree, postdocs, and academic visitors (student or faculty). The dorms are to be used as a temporary accommodation for newly arriving residents until they can get acquainted with the area and find other housing. One room will be reserved for visiting scientists. Dorm facilities contain shared living, dining, laundry, and kitchen area with 8 private rooms and 4 shared bathrooms. Each bathroom is shared by 2 residents. The residents are responsible for cleaning of shared and private spaces, however, biweekly professional cleaning is provided to clean the common spaces.
