Fall 2017 Weeknight Football Game

UCF's opening home football game will be played at 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 31, against Florida International University and will be broadcast on CBS Sports Network.

Classes on the main campus, in the Central Florida Research Park, at the Rosen College of Hospitality Management, and on UCF's regional campuses will conclude at 1 p.m. Offices at those locations also will close for normal operations at 1 p.m. in order to allow adequate time for a smooth transition to game day activities, which will begin at 2 p.m.

Faculty members who have classes in progress at 1 p.m. may choose to conduct the portions of those sessions that come before that time.

Some staff members will be required to work past the time when the university closes. Please speak with your supervisor about how your area will handle operations after 1 p.m.

UCF will re-open for normal operations, including regular class and activity schedules, at 6 a.m. Friday, Sept. 1.
