Attending an open house is optional for all prospective UCF students. It’s true that most of the information at our open house events will be geared toward freshmen, but there are still many presentations beneficial to transfer students. One of the presentations is specifically about transferring to UCF, for example.
Can I go on a campus tour at a Knight for a Day Open House?
Yes! A limited number of campus tours are offered during each Knight for a Day Open House. Because there are so many activities for you to choose from, your tour may be shorter than a regular Campus Visit Experience, but we’ll squeeze as much information in as possible. Housing tours are self-guided, giving you the flexibility to view only those communities that interest you. We’ll post signs on campus directing you to our housing areas. Once you get there, a member of our housing staff will be on hand to answer questions and show you around. Not every housing community is open, but you’ll be able to view a broad selection.
And finally, our tours do not include the library or our bookstore, but we encourage you to stop in during your free time.

Do I have to register to attend a "Knight For A Day" Open House?
Yes, each prospective student must register to attend, though parents can register as guests under one student’s name. We want to make sure everyone gets the attention they need — fewer people means more one-on-one attention for you. For that reason, we limit space. So, if you need to cancel, please let us know so we can allow others to attend. A cancellation link appears in the confirmation email that was sent to you when you signed up.Register for an Open House
How is a Knight for a Day Open House different from the Campus Visit Experience?
Knight for a Day Open House events give you more information about UCF’s campus, programs, housing, student life and more. The Campus Visit Experience is a tour of the campus — it’s included in the Open House event, but may be condensed due to time constraints. In addition, you will also learn about admissions, financial aid and academics. You don’t have to take the tour during an Open House event, but we highly recommend you attend.Register for an Open House
Ok, I’m registered for an Open House. Where do I go and when?
Once you get to the main campus, park in Garage A (free of charge), then walk to the Student Union — there will be signs in place to help you find your way. Once inside, go to the Pegasus Ballroom. Our campus is a walking campus, so there is no transportation between the garage and the Student Union. Check-in happens from 8 to 9 a.m. and the event runs until 3 p.m. Arrive early to avoid waiting in line.
