Welcome to the
University of West Florida
The first thing everyone notices about UWF is our beautiful campus. We love showing off our 1,600 acres, including the Edward Ball Nature Trail, which takes you through Thompson’s Bayou, where you can spot birds and maybe even an alligator.
If you take a closer look, you’ll find a place where lives are transformed. We are a spirited community of learners, launching the next generation of big thinkers who will change the world.
UWF offers more than 45 undergraduate degree programs, 25 master’s degree programs, two specialist degrees and a doctorate in education. You won’t get lost in the crowd here, because our average class size is fewer than 40 students. Our students take part in internships, fieldwork, research, team projects, study abroad programs and service learning.
We’re minutes away from some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. In downtown Pensacola, UWF brings history to life at 28 properties, including museums, centers, monuments and sites. These sites serve as living laboratories for students interested in history, archaeology and tourism. Did I mention that UWF professors and students found the site of the first multi-year European settlement right here in town?
I hope you’ll enjoy your visit.
President Martha D. Saunders
