Located in Orlando, Florida, UCF and its 13 colleges provide opportunities to 61,000 students, offering 210 degree programs from UCF’s main campus, hospitality campus, health sciences campus and its 10 regional locations.

Here at the Union, we provide space for students, and members of the UCF community to study, socialize, eat, host events, attend meetings and engage in campus life. Our facility provides a home to many vibrant university departments, access to key student services, and collaborative spaces for students to connect on campus. In addition, the Union offers over 26,000 square feet of meeting and event space, with the ability to host various campus events, seminars, conferences, banquets, and various other functions.
The Student Union has grown to more than just a building at the center of UCF's campus. Our team strives to provide quality spaces at all ends of campus. In addition to our main facility, the Student Union manages the All Knight Study spaces at both the north and sound end of campus, and the Ferrell Commons Auditorium. As we continue to grow, we strive to deliver high-quality service and inclusive, trend-setting spaces.
Here at the Student Union we are always learning and growing. We look to strategically deliver new services that add value to the overall UCF experience. That said, our team is always looking to engage in new discussions and explore new ideas. If you have one, reach out and be a part of the conversation here at the heart of campus. All members of our team are always happy to meet with students and campus departments to discuss how we can better serve the UCF community.
