Together, we will protect our kingdom.

The past several months have presented unique challenges and this fall, things may look different than we are used to. But at UCF, we are committed to the well-being of every Knight, and have worked tirelessly over the last several months to ensure a safer return to campus.

Now, we need you to do your part to ensure the health and well-being of your family, friends, classmates and colleagues — as well as our community and yourselves. Because that’s what Knights do.

Learn more about what you can do to take care of the community and each other, and take the voluntary Armor Up Pledge. Share that you care on social media using #ArmorUpKnights.

Protect Fellow Knights and the Community.

Preventing and avoiding the spread of COVID-19 requires every one of us. Take the Armor Up Pledge, and show the world what it truly means to be a Knight.
