For UCF Downtown Employees

Faculty and staff are at the center of UCF Downtown’s high-caliber academic programs. In fall 2019, the campus will be home to nearly 300 faculty and staff.

From moving coordination to housing and childcare, these resources are intended to help faculty and staff navigate the details of their new campus in downtown Orlando.

About Childcare

UCF Downtown will not have an on-campus preschool or daycare, however HealthAdvocate, UCF’s Employee Assistance Program, is an employee resource, free to all faculty, and A&P and USPS staff, and their dependents, including children and parents.

HealthAdvocate’s Work/Life specialists can help locate childcare and eldercare resources in your area and provide availability and rates. These include nanny agencies, pre-school centers, childcare centers and summer camps.

There is also a self-search tool on the HealthAdvocate member website where employees can search for childcare and eldercare providers on their own.

Move Coordination

Coordinating Your Move

UCF Downtown is working with departments to coordinate moving plans for UCF faculty and staff who will be moving to the downtown campus. From packing boxes to ensuring offices are ready in downtown, we’re working to make this transition as easy as possible.

Move Coordinators

The UCF Downtown team is responsible for planning and executing the move of faculty and staff from UCF’s main campus to UCF Downtown. To assist with communicating the timelines and details of the transition, Move Coordinators have been identified in each department.

Faculty and staff who have questions about moving should contact their department’s move coordinator.
