About the UCF Finance Corporation

The UCF Finance Corporation was created by the University Board of Trustees to provide a means for financing the Burnett Biomedical Sciences building and the Medical Education building. After its creation for the purpose of incurring debt and a conduit for servicing that debt, and with no operating revenues or expenses, the university-appointed corporate governing board decided to further use this corporation as a vehicle to facilitate select future financings where there would be no need for the corporation to be involved in the operations of whatever entity was the beneficiary of the financing. Specifically, the articles of incorporation state that “The Corporation is organized and shall be operated exclusively to receive, hold, invest, and administer property and to make expenditure to or for the benefit of the University of Central Florida.”
