August 20, 2020

Orlando, Fla. – Charles Perry Partners, Inc. (CPPI) recently completed the final phases of a 32,794 square-foot expansion and renovation at the University of Central Florida’s Student Union.

Known as the “Heart of Campus,” the Orlando Campus Student Union now features a new, second-floor common space with ample seating and a Starbucks storefront for students and university staff to enjoy. A third-floor space was added and offers offices and a Senate Chamber for the Student Government Association. The first floor was also expanded and renovated to offer additional dining space and food options, including Steak & Shake, Huey Magoo’s, Panda Express, Whichwich, and Qdoba.

Phase 1 and 2 of the Student Union Renovation and Expansion project relocated the back-of-house dishwasher and completely renovated the existing food court to create five new foodservice venues. This portion of the facility partially opened in September 2018, and fully opened in January 2019. Phase 3 and 4 expanded the building and are now complete as of August 2020.

With the help of our trade partners, CPPI is thrilled to complete this this new expansion that will help the growing UCF community continue to have a space to study, eat, host events, celebrate traditions, and socialize.
