All are based at the University’s 2,000-acre campus, joining its historic red-brick core with advanced facilities and preserved natural areas and connecting to adjacent innovation, commercial, and residential districts.

UF has 61,000 students, 30,000 employees, 6,400 faculty members, an $8 billion annual budget and more than 140 mission-focused units across the state of Florida.
