The UCF downtown campus project was projected to be opened by August 2018, but the university announced today that its plans are being pushed back by at least a couple months, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

The new campus isn’t expected to open until 2019.


“UCF Downtown is one of the largest projects in our history, and we want to ensure that our plans reflect the scope and impact it will have on Orlando,” said Thad Seymour, Jr., according to the Sentinel. “With complex and transformative projects like this, we need to make sure we get it right.”


When the new campus opens, it is expected to hold nearly 7700 Valencia and UCF students, according to the Sentinel.
