Offices on Campus

As an instructor at UCF, you may find these resources (arranged alphabetically) to be useful in two completely separate ways:

  1. As resources for yourself
  2. As something to pass along to your students; you may want to refer them to some of these offices for assistance

The offices listed below are located on the Orlando campus (map of the Orlando campus buildings), but provide services and phone support to all campuses. Student services are available at many of the Regional Campuses as well, in the UCF administration buildings on the local campuses.
