The University of Central Florida decided to open its planned campus in downtown Orlando in August 2019, a year later than originally planned. The downtown campus, 13 miles from the main campus in northeastern Orlando, will include student housing and serve as home to several UCF degree programs.
The university just awarded the construction contract for the $60 million project in June. So UCF officials decided to delay the start of construction until late 2017 to avoid the possibility of finishing the downtown campus in the middle of an academic year. [Orlando Sentinel] — Mike Seemuth
