UCF Reopens For In Person Education

It’s a bit hard to believe, but fall is just around the corner—and with it a brand-new academic year at the University of Central Florida!

As the university’s only on-campus luxury hotel, The Celeste offers absolutely premier accommodations for any and all UCF visits and events, from prospective student visits to Knights home games.

Fall 2021 at the University of Central Florida

Now’s the time to be thinking about fall visits to the UCF campus—and to be ironing down your Marriott Tribute Portfolio accommodations with The Celeste Hotel!

It’s looking (thankfully) like a bit more of a “normal” 2021-2022 year at UCF compared with the pandemic stretch we’re emerging from. One expression of that return to normalcy is full capacity over at the Bounce House, where UCF Knights football goes down.

As we recently wrote about here at The Celeste Hotel blog, it’s going to be an especially exciting football season here at UCF. Building on last year’s very solid record, the Knights are welcoming a new head coach: Gus Malzahn, coming to Orlando from Auburn University, where he steered the team to 77 wins across his eight successful coaching seasons.

The Knights will be kicking things off with September and October home games against Boise State, Bethune-Cookman, East Carolina, and the University of Memphis.

We definitely recommend booking well ahead of time for UCF Homecoming, likely to be a sellout. Consider locking down one or more of our 179 rooms and suites for Homecoming by August or so.

The Celeste: Boutique Luxury Accommodations on the UCF Campus

We’re honored to provide UCF with its very first on-campus luxury hotel accommodations, delivering the trademark boutique hospitality for which the Tribute Portfolio Marriott brand is so well known.

Enjoy our unique space-themed ambience, which celebrates adventure, curiosity, and imagination. Savor some of the best dining in Orlando right here at the hotel courtesy of our wonderful Aurora restaurant. When you’re not soaking all of our on-site amenities and comforts, take in the best of what the UCF campus has to offer—and take advantage of easy access to all of Greater Orlando’s attractions, to boot!
