Location

The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders has two locations: the UCF Orlando campus and the UCF Communication Disorders Clinic. On the UCF Orlando campus, we are located in Health and Public Affairs building II (HPA II), Suite 101. The UCF Communication Disorders Clinic is located in the Central Florida Research Park in the Innovative Center off of Progress Drive.

The greater Orlando area is a great place to live and work. Further, our location affords us access to many professionals, agencies and facilities that serve individuals from diverse populations with language, speech, hearing and swallowing disorders across the age span. Our many national and international affiliates expand our horizons to the global community. In these venues we provide rich experiences for faculty members and students to collaborate on research and clinical services.
