Students will have a chance to use their efficacy in the most recent phase of the on-campus Student Union renovation.

The University of Central Florida Student Union distributed a Qualtrics polling email to those currently enrolled at UCF, with the intention of gathering feedback from the campus community as new restaurants make their way to be considered for lease.


Tuesday’s distribution comes after a decision by the UCF Board of Trustees to renovate the ‘Heart of Campus’ with a 10-year, (up to) $17.85 million deal to be led by Aramark. The expansion includes a seating capacity that would double as well as create a greater utilization of space for dining, studying and easing overcrowding, according to plans.

• Chicken concept: KFC, Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen, Cane’s Chicken Fingers
• Sandwich concept: McAlister’s Deli, Rising Roll Gourmet, Which Wich ‘Superior Sandwiches’

A ranking preference box included: bakery, cookies, ice cream, Mediterranean, a salad bar and smoothies.
