UCF is an emerging pre-eminent research university in Florida and one of
the largest universities in the U.S. But we’re not just bigger — we’re
better. We’re one of the best colleges when it comes to quality, access,
impact and value. In fact, Forbes has named UCF one of the nation’s most affordable colleges, while both The Princeton Review and Kiplinger’s rank us a best-value university.
Founded in 1963, UCF and its 13 colleges offer more than 212 degrees from UCF’s
main campus, hospitality campus, health sciences campus, online and through its
10 regional locations. The 1,415-acre main campus is 13 miles east of downtown Orlando and adjacent to one of the top research parks in the nation. Regional campuses are located throughout Central Florida and include a fully
accredited College of Medicine in the Medical City at Lake Nona.
