Building a foundation for student success

 Since Florida Gulf Coast University opened in 1997, more than 95 buildings have been constructed.  We could not have done it without the vision and generosity of our benefactors.

Many of our campus buildings and specialized learning facilities display the names of forward-thinking individuals and businesses that have shown extraordinary support for FGCU. They have a permanent legacy here that will be recognized by generations of Eagles to come."

Chris Simoneau

Executive Director, FGCU Foundation 


FGCU strives to create a campus environment that fosters productive interactions and is aesthetically inspiring. To maintain high standards of teaching and to utilize leading-edge technologies requires state-of-the-art teaching facilities and equipment.
