UCF is considering moving more of its programs into downtown Orlando.
On Thursday, the university's board of trustees approved adding a new project identified as "UCF Downtown Presence" to its long-term list of possible construction projects.
It's too soon to say what the project would entail. Officials have just started looking into the idea. But it is proposed to cost $75 million.
The university noted that the project could end up being a joint-use facility with Orlando's Valencia College.
Officials also added a "UCF Downtown Presence Garage," which would cost $15 million, to the list.
UCF spokesman Chad Binette said officials are still in the "study phase."
The university received $2 million from the state Legislature earlier this year to research the possibility of moving more of UCF into downtown Orlando.
Currently, two UCF facilities are located downtown -- the Executive Development Center and the Center for Emerging Media.
"We have begun studying the possibility of an expanded UCF presence downtown, and consultants met last week with campus and community leaders," Binette said. "Our consultants are discussing the experiences of other institutions that have
established downtown campuses, particularly Arizona State University’s campus in Phoenix, and the components that are required for a downtown campus to thrive."
