Known as the “Heart of Campus,” the Student Union sits at the center of the University of Central Florida’s Orlando Campus. We provide space for members of the UCF community to study, socialize, eat, host events, attend meetings, celebrate traditions, and engage in campus life. Our facility provides a home to many vibrant university departments, access to key student services, and collaborative spaces for students to connect on campus. In addition, the Union offers over 26,000 square feet of meeting and event space, with the ability to host various campus events, seminars, conferences, banquets, and other functions.

The Student Union has grown to more than just a building at the center of UCF’s campus. Our team strives to provide quality spaces at all ends of campus. In addition to our main facility, the Student Union manages the All Knight Study spaces at both the north and south end of campus, Ferrell Commons, the Live Oak Event Center, Cypress Room, and the Knights Helping Knights Pantry. As we continue to grow, we strive to deliver high-quality service and inclusive, trend-setting spaces.
