UCF is extending its resources past our borders. A new program, Global UCF, is building on stretching the UCF culture and bringing in students from all around the world.

In partnership with Shorelight Education, Global UCF will bring a new flood of international students to the UCF Campus.

Currently at 50 students, the program aims to attract over 1,000 students annually.

Along with growing the size of the program, Global UCF has began construction for their own program building. As many students know, half of lot “D” has been closed off for construction since December.

The Global UCF building will be located on Memory Mall and across from the Fairwinds Alumni Center.

This three-story, 50,000 square-foot building will have administration offices, faculty offices, meeting rooms, congregational areas and a total of 21 classrooms.

This new building will cost approximately $15 million dollars. It will be funded through international student fees, auxiliary funds and investment earnings. No tuition dollars will be going to it.

Construction of the Global UCF building is aimed to be completed by December 2015, with doors opening January 2016.
