About the Student Body Senate

The Legislative Branch (or Student Body Senate) is composed of sixty-nine student leaders who are elected by the student body each year. Our Student Body Senate provides students and organizations with the funds necessary for travel and conference registration, as well as for campus-wide events and projects. Also, through various committees, Senate has great impact on issues that directly regard the Student Body. Student Senators also work on college-specific and/or campus-wide initiatives that better the student experience for UCF Knights!

Senate Meetings during the Fall and Spring Semesters are Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. in the Student Union’s Key West Ballroom.

You can follow along in the senate meeting by clicking on our link to the agenda and legislation documents via Google Drive!
