The University of Central Florida, commonly referred to as UCF, is a metropolitan public research university located in Orlando, Florida, United States. UCF is a member institution of the State University System of Florida, and is currently the largest university in the state, and the second-largest university in the United States by enrollment.

The University of Central Florida was founded in 1963 as Florida Technological University with the goal of providing highly-trained personnel to support the Kennedy Space Center, located only 35 miles (56 km) to the east. As the university’s academic scope had expanded to encompass other disciplines, the school was renamed the University of Central Florida in 1978. Although initial enrollment was only 1,948 students, as of 2010, enrollment consists of a 56,235 member student body representing over 140 countries, all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The majority of the student population is located on the university’s 1,415-acre (573 ha) main campus approximately 13 miles (21 km) northeast of downtown Orlando and 55 miles (89 km) southwest of Daytona Beach. The university offers over 225 separate degree options through twelve colleges and eleven satellite campuses throughout Florida. Since its founding, UCF has awarded more than 200,000 degrees, including 35,000 graduate and professional degrees, to nearly 170,000 alumni worldwide.

UCF is a space-grant university and has made noted research contributions to optics, modeling and simulation, digital media, engineering and computer science, business administration, education, and hospitality management, and is considered to be the seventh-best up-and-coming national university by U.S. News and World Report. UCF’s official colors are black and gold and the academic logo is a Pegasus. The athletic teams, called the ‘Knights’ and represented by the mascot Knightro, are members of Conference USA.
