Orlando Area Housing
Moving can be an overwhelming experience, especially if you are moving into an area that is unfamiliar territory. We'd like to make that transition a little easier for you. RTS student housing is more than just a place to live. It’s a place to connect and a place to reach out. These are 20 units at the Villas at Lakeside where we are building a community of like-minded students who want to form relationships. We host community events like cook-outs, game nights, pool parties, progressive dinners, etc. The community also reaches out to neighbors in the condominium complex. In this way, seminary doesn’t become a time when we simply learn about reaching the world; we can reach it right now. Like it? Talk to us. Contact Dave Veldkamp at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Oviedo is a suburb NE of Orlando. Traffic is heaviest going into Orlando around 8:00 a.m. and leaving Orlando around 5:00 p.m., particularly on the main thoroughfares like I-4, 17/92, 426 (Aloma), Red Bug Lake Road, and 434 (Alafaya Trail), especially near UCF. State Roads 417 (Greeneway) and 408 are usually quicker but are toll roads. Those who live in Orlando may encounter less traffic with a reverse commute.
