Summer Programs Provide Necessary Revenues for UF Housing
Summer can be a busy time at the University of Florida when the school hosts dozens of camps and conferences, and the visitors play an important role for the upcoming school year.
Last year, guests staying at UF facilities brought in $800,000 before expenses. UF housing officials say the number of programs and conferences taking place on campus this summer has gone up. Around 60 groups will hold various camps or conferences this summer.
"Housing income is all derived from either rent from the students or from our camps and conferences," said UF Summer Camps and Summer Conferences Coordinator Robert Holland. "That's the majority of where our dollars come from."
