New SF/UF Hub Opening at the Northwest Campus

Santa Fe College and the University of Florida are opening a new shared space at Santa Fe’s Northwest campus.

The “Gator Den” will encompass a student lounge on the south end of campus in H Building. The lounge will be decorated with an orange and blue Gators theme and sport Wi Fi. In addition to soaking in the Gator ambiance, a full-time advisor/recruiter will be available to discuss UF’s many programs, distance learning opportunities, and the transfer process.

The new space is one of many renovation projects on campus this summer, and it should open in time for the start of the fall semester. UF is paying for the $200,000 renovation and SF and UF are splitting the funding for the advisor.

“I think this speaks volumes about UF’s commitment to Santa Fe, our special relationship, and our growing partnership,” said Ed Bonahue, Interim Provost.
