University of Central Florida College of Nursing

Owner: University of Central Florida
Location: Lake Nona, FL
Completion Date: 2025
Designer: HuntonBrady Architects
Partners: TLC Engineering Solutions, Ayers Saint Gross (ASG)

This project is a ground-up building featuring 90,000 sq ft. of flexible instructional space, collaborative study areas and innovative simulation labs. The labs will include dedicated space for virtual reality learning and structured clinical examination to prepare students for practice.

This project plays a role in addressing the national nursing shortage. The finished project will have a positive impact on communities in Central Florida and across the state as the majority of UCF nursing graduates remain in Florida to live and work.
