At the University of North Florida, students are our first priority. UNF recognizes that every student is an individual, with different goals, learning styles and needs. Our students are provided opportunities for life-changing learning experiences, including internships, study abroad and other off-campus programs and dynamic research projects. We have an average enrollment of more than 16,000 students and offer six colleges of distinction: Coggin College of Business, Brooks College of Health, College of Arts and Sciences, College of Computing, Engineering and Construction, College of Education and Human Services, and Hicks Honors College.
History-The University’s campus was first established in 1969 when 1,000 acres between Downtown Jacksonville and Jacksonville Beach were set aside for development of the University. Construction on classrooms and buildings began in 1971, and UNF opened its doors to 2,027 juniors in the fall of 1972.
