Starting Points

When touring UCF, your first stop is the Duke Energy UCF Welcome Center. From there you’ll become familiar with Millican Hall, the center of administrative activity. It’s easy to spot this building because UCF’s most iconic landmark — the Reflecting Pond — is right behind it. Another major building you’ll learn about is the John C. Hitt Library.

Heart of Campus

Known as the Heart of Campus, the Student Union is a hub of student resources, activities, student spaces and dining options. These offerings and more can also be found throughout the breezeway in the John T. Washington Center. Behind the Union is the Boardwalk, a scenic walkway through cypress trees that connects you to other places you need to be on campus.

Recreation and Academics

Close to the Lake Claire Apartments is the Lake Claire Recreation Area, where you can take advantage of picnic facilities, water activities and sand volleyball courts. UCF’s fraternities and sororities thrive on Greek Park Drive, where chapter houses line the street. In the Burnett Honors College and nearby academic buildings, students can find support while pursuing their passions.

Athletics Village

Athletics Village is home to Addition Financial Arena, Knights Plaza and Spectrum Stadium, where you can enjoy game-day activities, shopping and dining. Nearby is Memory Mall, which is the main tailgating spot on campus. Beyond athletic events, these spaces host some of the other biggest and most exciting gatherings at UCF, including concerts, convocation and commencement.

Health and Wellness Resources

Whether you want to volunteer on campus or are in need of food and basic necessities, Knights Pantry can help. The Student Health Center can assist with physical health needs, while Counseling and Psychological Services is here to support your mental well-being. If you’re ever looking for place to relax in nature, the Arboretum has 82-acres for you to enjoy the outdoors.

Housing, Fitness and Safety

Fitness novices and experts can test their limits on the outdoor Challenge Course and in the 150,000-square-foot Recreation and Wellness Center. Students of all class standings live in the Neptune, Nike and Hercules housing communities behind the RWC. Close to these communities is the UCF Police Department, which keeps everyone on campus safe.
