About UWF

Helping the next generation of voyagers find their way.

At the University of West Florida, we believe in the power of higher education to drive change. We see that impact on campus, in our region, across the state and around the world.

Our students confront challenges head-on, working collaboratively to solve them. Our faculty give them the tools to navigate choppy waters and the courage to seek new horizons.

Based in Pensacola, we have additional locations in the region and an ever-growing global online presence. We've awarded more than 100,000 degrees from 110+ undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs.

Our alumni network is more than 90,000 Argos strong. We lead the Gulf South Conference in all-time championships and all-sports trophies. We're a major driver of economic impact in Northwest Florida and beyond, generating approximately $1 billion in total annual sales across the Florida economy.

UWF is more than a university. It’s a symbol of success, commitment to lifelong learning and boundless potential.
