University of Florida Department of Housing and Residence Education is a featured program.
The University of Florida is committed to making the transition of all of its students, as easy and successful as possible.
Preview is the first step towards becoming a Florida Gator. There are specific Preview sessions for each of our new students, including Freshman Preview, Transfer Preview, and Innovation Academy Preview. Students are able to have an experience tailored to their specific needs when attending their Preview session.
At the University of Florida, every incoming student has a one-on-one advising appointment to talk about their individual goals and set up a schedule that fit their needs.
Students are also required to spend one night in our residence halls, so they can truly experience what it is like to be on campus.

Additional Support for First Generation Students
In addition to our focused sessions, there are services we provide our students based on individual needs as well. For example, many of our first generation students are Machen Florida Opportunity Scholars (MFOS), and as such receive peer mentoring, financial literacy education, academic coaching, and more. It is for this reason they receive targeting advising at Preview.
