UNF at a Glance

Since its establishment in 1972, The University of North Florida has grown rapidly in size and stature. Today, UNF appears in nearly every national college ranking including Princeton’s “Best of” list for the Southeast and the prestigious Carnegie Classification for Community Engagement. And while national recognition is an important benchmark of our quality and value, the university retains a small campus feel positioned on a 1,381 acre nature preserve, surrounded by trees, lakes, and nature trails for students to enjoy. The campus sits midway between downtown Jacksonville and the Atlantic Ocean, just ten minutes from the beach.
