FAQ: “Knight For A Day” Open House
Can I go on a campus tour?
Yes! A limited number of campus tours are offered. Because there are so many activities for you to choose from, your tour may be shorter than a regular visit, but we’ll squeeze as much information in as possible.
Housing tours are self-guided, giving you the flexibility to view only those communities that interest you. We’ll post signs on campus directing you to our housing areas. Once you get there, a member of our housing staff will be on hand to answer questions and show you around. Not every housing community is open, but you’ll be able to view a broad selection.
And finally, our tours do not visit the library or our bookstore, but we encourage you to stop in during your free time.
Who can I call if I’m lost?
A hotline with directions to campus is available 24-7 by calling 407-882-0909.
Do I have to register?
Yes, each student must register to attend a campus event, though parents and other family members can register as guests under one student’s name. We want to make certain that everyone gets the attention they need, and fewer people means more one-on-one attention for you, so we limit space. So, if you need to cancel, please let us know so we can allow others to attend. A cancellation link appears in your confirmation email that was sent to you when you signed up.
Ok, I’m registered. Where do I go and when?
Once you get to the main campus, park in Garage A (free of charge) and then walk to the Student Union—there will be signs in place to help you find your way. Once inside, go to the Pegasus Ballroom. Our campus is a walking campus, so there is no transportation between the garage and the Student Union.
Check-in happens from 8–9 a.m. and the event runs until 3:00 p.m. Arrive early to avoid waiting in line.
What do I wear and how do I get around?
It’s usually hot in Florida. Dress in layers to adjust to the changes in temperature from the heat outside to the air-conditioned buildings. There will be a lot of walking and Florida weather is unpredictable, so wear comfortable shoes and pack an umbrella, just in case.
Shuttle service is not offered during any UCF event.
Will someone help me with admissions questions?
Yes. Admissions representatives will be available throughout the day, and a table will be set up in our Student Services Showcase.
From 9 a.m. – 2:45 p.m., you can also stop by the Duke Energy University Welcome Center to meet individually with a representative and have more in-depth questions answered.
Can I choose which sessions to attend?
You will choose your own sessions based upon the times they are offered. Many of our sessions do not repeat, and some even overlap, so you’ll have to decide which sessions best suit your interests. While activities are scheduled through 2:45 p.m., we advise that you arrive early and stay for the entire event to make the most of your visit.
