Dreaming Big

A 21st-century city needs a 21st-century campus. A place where new ideas can flourish from a foundation that’s built on innovation. One that will transform lives and our community for decades to come.

UCF Downtown, in partnership with Valencia College, brings more than 7,000 students to live, learn and work in downtown Orlando, creating a game-changing campus in the heart of our great city. Opened in August 2019, this transformational project, which kick-starts Orlando’s public-private Creative Village, will increase access for students, provide pathways into high-demand career fields, foster collaboration with our neighbors in meaningful ways and improve countless lives through the power of education.

The campus’ proximity to Orlando’s Central Business District places students within walking distance of job and internship opportunities, and makes it easy for faculty to invite guest speakers to campus or collaborate with professionals in their field of study.
