The USF Sarasota-Manatee campus facilities opened to students in August 2006. With the capability to serve 5,000 students, the three-story, 134,540 gross-square-foot building provides improved access to higher education for the local community.

Highlights of the campus physical facilities include the following:

In addition to the facilities described above, USF Sarasota-Manatee operates and maintains four (4) one –story buildings comprising a total of 18,059 gross-square-feet on a 3.3 acre tract of land located approximately ¼ mile south of the main facilities. These buildings, referred to as the Viking Complex, were constructed in 1959 and purchased by the State of Florida in 1983 for future campus expansion. One (1) of the buildings houses the campus bookstore that a private-sector vendor operates and manages to provide services for USF Sarasota-Manatee and New College of Florida. The remaining four (3) buildings provide administrative support, office space, and storage.
