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 Orlando student housing is more than just a place to live. It’s a place to connect and a place to reach out. Our 20 units at the Villas at Lakeside is where we are building a community of students and their families. 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. You can enjoy the amenities of the condominium complex including a gym, tennis court, pool, and lake-view walking trail. RTS students also reach out to neighbors in the broader condominium complex.

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.
