Imagine a university in the heart of a lively city center. An intimate campus nestled on the waterfront, steps from world-class cultural institutions. A faculty committed to learning and research on all levels and across disciplines. Students working in partnership with the community. At USF St. Petersburg, students enjoy smaller classes. Professors who know you by name. Students conducting research on the undergraduate and graduate levels side by side with professors. A setting that encourages creativity. All the advantages of a large public university, including nationally ranked NCAA football, mens basketball, womens softball and womens sailing. Located on beautiful Bayboro Harbor on the shores of Tampa Bay, students, faculty and staff have access to sailing, swimming, canoeing, kayaking and paddle-boarding.
