The best of both worlds: the USF St. Petersburg campus provides many of the advantages of a large public university campus while maintaining the ability to offer small class sizes in a close-knit learning environment. We are the only public research university campus located in Pinellas County, and students can choose from undergraduate and graduate programs across several USF colleges.
Award-winning faculty at the St. Petersburg campus have earned grants from a variety of major institutions, including the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Education, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The St. Petersburg campus is recognized for its significant commitment to community involvement and civic engagement by the Carnegie Foundation for Teaching. Located on the water in the heart of a bustling downtown, the campus offers ample opportunity for innovation and collaboration with businesses and cultural institutions, providing students the ability to explore their passions, be creative, and experience life both inside and outside the classroom.
