Student Research Resources

Research is at the center of the student and faculty experience. Designated as a “Preeminent State Research University,” the Tampa campus is one of the nation’s top public research university campuses and one of only 56 public research university campuses classified by the Carnegie Foundation as both a Doctoral University with “Highest Research Activity” and as a “Community Engaged” institution by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education.

With such momentous activity around campus, our undergraduates bolster their college experiences by taking advantage of a multitude of available research opportunities. The Office for Undergraduate Research provides support to students engaged in research and teaches students about the expectations and privileges associated with undergraduate research.

And graduate students are at the center of our university’s far-reaching research endeavors. Each day they work alongside internationally renowned faculty and researchers, and together they forge solutions to society’s most pressing problems.

Research is a creative and ongoing collaboration between faculty and students, administrators, business and academic partners and our local community. Together we are an ever-stronger national research university that explores uncharted terrain, generates knowledge, unleashes innovation and changes lives.
