Program Description:

University of Florida

Century Tower, U of Florida

With its origins in the first state education institution founded in 1853, the University of Florida moved to its campus, encompassing over 2,000 acres (or 8.1 km2), in Gainesville in 1906 shortly after it was formed from a merger of four smaller colleges as the "University of the State of Florida"; the name was simplified to the "University of Florida" in 1909.  Today the student population is approximately 55,000 and it is one of the largest single-campus universities in the United States.  It is also one of two Florida public universities to be designated a "preeminent university" by the State which means it receives additional funding intended to improve the national reputation of higher education within the state of Florida.

A number of the University's buildings are historically significant and are on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places for their architectural or historical significance such as the Century Tower, built in 1953 to celebrate the University's centenary in the centre of the old part of campus.
