Yes. The RWC is providing a phased approach to reopening which includes several operational, cleaning and safety changes. Providing students with safe facilities and programs continues to be a top priority.
The RWC will continue to remain flexible due to local health conditions in our reopening plans and may alter at any time based on the guidance provided by UCF as well as state and local health officials.

What about fall commencement?
The Florida Board of Governors has directed UCF and all state universities to develop alternate plans for fall commencement ceremonies. While UCF will be unable to host a traditional face-to-face ceremony for our fall graduates in December, we are committed to ensuring that our students’ accomplishments are celebrated.
We understand that commencement ceremonies are a major milestone in the lives of our graduates and the loved ones who have supported them on their education journey. UCF is exploring additional ways to improve our virtual ceremonies to include memorable experiences for graduates.
Cap and gown rentals continue to be available for students who would like to take photos in their gowns. Alternatively, Herff Jones will refund students who prefer to cancel their cap and gown order completely.
We will share more information about commencement and reimbursements as soon as it’s available.
Are there in-person events and activities taking place?
University-sponsored events and programs should be virtual wherever possible without loss of effectiveness, including recruiting for Greek and student organizations, and follow CDC and public health guidelines, which may evolve during the semester.
Registered student organizations are required to submit safety plans for their requested in-person activities, including meetings, events and programming.
Are campus tours and information sessions still happening?
UCF Admissions has made the difficult but necessary decision to suspend our Campus Visit Experience, including campus tours and information sessions, until further notice. UnionWest tours at the UCF Downtown campus and campus tours at the Rosen College of Hospitality Management have also been suspended at this time.
The Duke Energy UCF Welcome Center and the Office of Undergraduate Admissions is closed to the public until further notice. Reach out to us via email (email@example.com) or direct message us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter (@UCFadmissions) if you have questions or need assistance.
Are shuttles running?
All shuttles for Fall 2020 will operate on their normal schedules. Seating capacity will be reduced by 20 percent and standing room will be suspended to promote distancing. All drivers and passengers should wear masks while onboard.
Shuttles will be thoroughly cleaned each day, with supplies kept on board for drivers to use on hard surfaces. Some windows will be kept open on shuttles throughout the day to allow fresh air to circulate. Several other cleaning, safety and training measures have also been implemented.
