What Students Are Saying

3.79 Average Rating
The University of North Florida is a great institution for individualism, respect, education, and nature. It is by far one of the most unique Universities in Florida, because of it's wonderful location, and the free-spirited student body that is a proud Osprey!
Tyler from Riverview, FL
I would rate UNF at a 4 out of 5 stars. All the faculty and staff are very helpful. Traditional classes are almost never larger than 30 students and lecture halls average about 250 at most which is different from many universities. The school is always improving upon itself and trying to stay cutting edge.

UNF has everything you need in a 4-year education without the high price tag. You won't find a more diverse group of students anywhere else. Even the geese want to learn!

A beautiful campus with lots of outdoor trails, the dorms are beautiful and spacious and the campus is fairly compact which makes walking really easy. The campus encourages biking and there are racks everywhere. The food is really good to and there are tons of options to choose from, not to mention the new gym is incredible!
