The University of Central Florida will remain closed through Wednesday, September 13 due to Hurricane Irma.


“UCF made this decision to allow additional time to assess the impact Irma has on students, faculty and staff — and their families. The university urges Knights everywhere to stay safe before, during and after the hurricane,” the university said.

“This closure includes the Rosen College of Hospitality Management, Health Sciences at Lake Nona campus and Center for Emerging Media in downtown Orlando, all of which follow main campus closure protocols. UCF regional locations will follow the decisions made by their respective host state college.”

Hurricane Irma made landfall in the Florida Keys at approximately 9:10 a.m.
