UCF is an emerging preeminent research university in Florida and one of the largest universities in the U.S. But we’re not just bigger — we’re one of the best colleges for quality, access, impact and value. And with impressive achievements on the field and in the classroom, Knights seek challenges, push boundaries, encourage innovation and invite the impossible. It’s one of the reasons U.S. News & World Report has named UCF one of the nation’s most innovative colleges, while both Kiplinger’s and Forbes rank us a best-value university.
Founded in 1963, UCF and its 13 colleges offer more than 216 degrees from UCF’s main campus, hospitality campus, health sciences campus, online and through its 12 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. UCF’s fully online programs include online bachelor degrees, online masters degrees, online PhDs, online certificates and more.
