Do your part to keep yourself and other Knights safe now and when we return to campus.

Face coverings are just one of the critical prevention measures UCF is adopting on campus this fall. The coverings help contain small droplets that come out of your mouth and nose. If you have COVID-19 and are not showing symptoms, a face covering reduces your chance of spreading the infection to others. If you are healthy, a covering may protect you from those around you.

Starting Monday, July 6, UCF Downtown will distribute one free cotton, reusable covering to those returning to UCF. From Monday, July 6 through Thursday, Aug. 6, you can reserve a time* using this online form or show up within the hours listed below to pick up your free facial covering from the Dr. Phillips Academic Commons east wing, located at 528 W. Livingston St., Orlando.


  • Mondays and Tuesdays, 9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
  • Wednesdays and Thursdays, 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.

*Those who have reserved a time will be given priority.

Distribution will continue throughout the summer, and additional times be added in August to accommodate the higher demand as more return to UCF.

Students and employees must have a valid UCF ID that can be swiped to receive the face covering. If you have lost or misplaced your ID, please call Card Services at 407-823-2100 to make an appointment for a replacement card.

All persons picking up facial coverings must wear a facial covering while on campus and maintain 6-foot distance from others.

You can read more information about the face coverings, including the location of main campus distribution centers on the UCF Coronavirus website.
