Mold forced UCF students to move during finals


At a time students should be focused on studying, some will be packing up and moving from one apartment to another.

“They’re moving me to another apartment and it’s inconvenient,” student Alejandro Racines told Channel 9 Eyewitness News.

Management at the Pegasus Landing apartments sent about 200 notices out last week telling students they will have to move during the Thanksgiving holiday; some will even be assigned new roommates.

The notice states the move comes due to ongoing renovations and upgrades, but students say management is not being honest. They believe it’s due to a mold problem that caused the University of Central Florida to stop referring students to the complex this summer.

“I’m pretty sure it could have something to do with the mold that could be still going on,” one student said.

Management and the University said they will be providing help with relocation.
