How to Get to the Mathematical Sciences Building?

It is the best to enter the UCF campus through Central Florida Blvd to get to the Mathematical Sciences Building. After that, you turn right at Gemini Blvd S., turn left at the first traffic light at Andromeda Loop N., and then turn left again to get to the parking lots B2 (on the right) and B4 (on the left).

3rd Floor in the Mathematical Sciences Building and what to bring

The faculty member’s talk will take place at MSB360. Before your child is admitted to the lecture hall, your child will get a name tag at the reception table in the 3rd floor in the Mathematical Sciences Building(MSB). On the first day, parents must fill out the waiver form.

Your child will bring a pencil and a notebook.

Here is the view of the 2nd floor. Once you climb the stairs, you will see the reception table in the 3rd floor.

Where to stay while waiting for your child?

Parents are not allowed to stay in the lecture hall or classrooms while the sessions are running. We will open a small lounge area in the 2nd floor which can accomodate at most 10 people. There are some places you can go. Those are John C. Hitt library, Starbucks, Arboretum, and bookstore.

  • John C. Hitt Library

    The library is very close to the Mathematical Sciences building. At the library, you can read books and use a library computer. To be connected to the internet, you need to get a guest password. Guest passwords for computer access can be obtained at the 3rd floor’s LibTech desk. Personal laptops, tablets, and mobile devices can connect to the library’s guest wireless network: UCF_Guest. Staff at the LibTech desk are available to help troubleshoot login problems.

    There is an Infusion Café in the 2nd floor. They sell some bakeries, coffee and drinks.

    Starbucks

    Starbucks Coffee is located at the Health and Public Affairs building(HPA).

    Arboretum

    The Arboretum is a small park which provides opportunities to explore and learn about the plant life and other natural wonders of our beautiful campus.
