Weather in Central Florida can be unpredictable, so plan accordingly. For your safety, and that of our Student Ambassadors, the campus tour portion of your visit may be canceled in the event of inclement weather. Don’t worry, though — you’ll still receive the same valuable information from our Student Ambassadors through a virtual tour and Q&A panel.
During your campus visit, Student Ambassadors will lead you on a 90-minute walking tour around campus, making 10 stops. You’ll take a walk through Memory Mall, stroll by the Reflecting Pond, and visit the Student Union in the center of campus.
The best time to experience UCF is when classes are in session.
Consider visiting our campus:
- On Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays
- In January, February, May, June or November

When you arrive on campus, stop by the Visitor and Parking Information Center to purchase a daily parking pass ($5) before parking in any student lot, including spaces reserved for guests with disabilities. You can also purchase a parking pass at one of the daily permit dispensers located in all student parking facilities. Cashless short-term parking spaces are available adjacent to the Welcome Center and require the Passport App to be downloaded onto your smart device. Parking is available in student lots B-4, B-5 and B-6, all of which are in close proximity to the Duke Energy University Welcome Center.View Interactive Campus Map
