Academic Resources

USF has resources on campus that can support and encourage your students in their academic endeavors. Please encourage them to utilize these departments!

Wellness Services

Student Safety

The University of South Florida’s top priority is the safety of all students, faculty, staff and visitors. In the event of an emergency, official notifications will be updated as changes occur or there are cancellations to report.

New Student Connections

USF is a big campus with a lot of people and can feel a bit overwhelming to new students. New Student Connections makes it their focus to help your student connect with others so they can form friendships to make their time at USF fun and memorable.


With many options available, such as USF's Bull Runner, U-Pass program with HART, and a car rental program on campus, your student doesn't need to bring a car to campus.

Explore Tampa Bay

When visiting your students, be sure to take advantage of the opportunity to explore the Tampa Bay community.
