New website provides all the info you need to know about UCF’s downtown expansion
In September, UCF President John Hitt announced that the university will move forward with plans for an expanded downtown campus to enhance educational opportunities for students and stimulate downtown Orlando.
Hitt described UCF’s plans as a “game changer” for downtown. Valencia College will be a partner in the expansion, and approximately 10,000 students from the two schools could study downtown.
UCF is actively working with the City of Orlando and other partners on a plan for the 68 acres freed up when the NBA’s Orlando Magic moved its arena and headquarters about a mile away. This develop-able area, adjacent to Interstate 4 and the historic Parramore Community, is the home of Creative Village — the largest mixed-use project in downtown Orlando, which will provide space for K-12 education, residential units, retail, commercial, office space, hotel, public parks and civic space.
UCF recently launched a website dedicated to the development of the new downtown campus. LEARN MORE
