Unique and vibrant Tampa
Why you'll love Tampa
Tampa has an average of 244 days of sunshine each year. It’s no surprise Florida’s nickname is the Sunshine State.
A convenient location means you can drive to Orlando in an hour or Miami in four. Want to explore more? Fly to New York in two hours. The area is also home to multiple award-winning beaches, including Clearwater Beach. You can't get much better weather, either, with an average temperature of 28°C.
Entertainment is everywhere. There are 10 theme parks within a 90-minute car ride from Tampa, including Universal Studios and Disney World.
Consistently noted for its beauty, industry and opportunities, Tampa, Florida has earned the name of top travel destination and place to call home. An average temperature of 28° Celsius warms the city and its more than 1,300 km of beaches in the Sunshine State of Florida. Spend a day oceanside relaxing in the sun, splashing in the waters and hanging out with friends before exploring the electric downtown scene by night. By day, you’ll find Tampa is filled with opportunities both in the city and back on campus. Establish yourself in a research study led by world-class faculty or dive deeper into your industry with an internship. Tampa ranks #8 among US cities with high-paying jobs and low cost of living (CNBC 2018).
