All housing on campus housing will close Sunday, December 10th at 12:00pm, so make sure you Knight has reviewed all of the closing policies for their respective residence hall. If your student is flying home for Winter break, make sure they have prepared their airport transportation options. If you are looking for airport transportation options for Winter break, please see the information below!

 Knight Flight

UCF’s Student Government Association provides a free holiday airport shuttle service called Knight Flight that transports students from the Main Campus to the Orlando International Airport (MCO). Make sure you reserve your spot as soon as possible. The shuttle has limited space, so keep in mind that you are limited to two pieces of luggage per person. Since there are multiple times and dates available, you must sign up for departing and returning buses separately. Plan to arrive at least 10 minutes ahead of the scheduled departure time.  If you miss your bus, you will be responsible for your own transportation to or from the airport.
