The Power of Potential
Founded in 1963 with the mission to provide talent for Central Florida and the growing U.S. space program, UCF has become one of the best colleges for quality, access, impact and value. It’s one of the reasons U.S. News & World Report ranks UCF among the nation’s top 10 most innovative colleges, while both Kiplinger and Forbes rank us a best-value university.
As an emerging preeminent research university in Florida, we are driven to do more and be more. We believe success can only happen when we expand opportunity and demand excellence. We believe if there’s a better way, we should do it. We believe innovation comes from the meeting of diverse viewpoints. And when more people unleash their full potential, anything is possible.

Life Is Good in Orlando
Living in America’s most popular tourist destination has its perks, but there’s a lot more to Orlando than theme parks and thrill rides. From our dynamic downtown to our eclectic neighborhoods and wide-open nature reserves, Orlando offers more reasons to explore than you can imagine. And with 236 days of signature sunshine to enjoy, it’s no surprise that so many UCF alumni choose to stay in the region after graduation.
