On August 31, the University of Central Florida will host a celebration and grand opening of its newest building on Memory Mall.

The Global UCF building serves as the “biggest symbol of UCF’s continuing commitment to internationalization, houses Global UCF students and programs, UCF Abroad, the English Language Institute, and all international immigration and advising services,” the university has stated.


The event runs from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. at 4356 Scorpius St., across from the Fairwinds Alumni Center. Refreshments and building tours will be offered as part of the grand opening event.

Over three-stories and 54,000-square-feet, a modernistic design of 22 classrooms and meeting rooms are featured throughout the building. On the first floor, large glass windows and doors fit into the design and promote an open space for students who walk through and make the most of what the building and program have to offer.

Knight News will be at the grand opening ceremony to provide coverage of this ceremony.
