UCF is an academic leader—and so much more
UCF is focused on creating academic and community leaders, but we’re also a leader in research—from vaccines to lasers to green solutions for environmental problems.
UCF students thrive
Students excel personally, academically and professionally through the guidance of our dedicated faculty members, and UCF’s diverse community of fellow students and scholars.
You don’t have to leave the Orlando campus to sing along at a concert, watch the Knights score a touchdown, or participate in any of our 350+ clubs and organizations. Check out our Campus Life page to get started.
UCF is modern
Whether it’s the state-of-the-art buildings with technology-based classrooms or beautiful woodlands and lakes that make up the main campus, UCF’s modern campus is designed for study, recreation and living.
UCF has pride. From our exemplary entering freshman class, to our graduated scholars and national recognition—everyone who attends UCF is a Knight.
