New Downtown Campus Academic Building Named

The University of Central Florida (UCF) Board of Trustees committee voted this month to name the Downtown Campus academic building the Dr. Phillips Academic Commons, after one of the region’s leading philanthropic organizations. Last year, Dr. Phillips Charities committed $7 million to the new campus, helping the university surpass its $20 million community support goal and making available state funding for the project.

The 148,000-square-foot building will be the heart of the campus that Valencia and UCF will share. The building will house collaborative learning space, classrooms and space for educational and community events.

A ceremonial groundbreaking will be held on Thursday, May 11, 2017.
