On March 1, the student government association at UCF announced that this year's Universal Knights will take place at Universal Studios instead of the usual Islands of Adventure.

“We decided to go with Universal Studios to give students the full theme park experience. Islands of Adventure is under some construction and remodeling," the press release stated. "While Universal Studios recently opened the Gringotts Ride and the Harry Potter expansion, which many students are excited for. This way students can experience both Universal parks during their time at UCF.”

Universal Knights will be held on April 17, and students will be allowed in the park from 4 p.m. to 1 p.m.

Tickets are required and will be distributed at the CFE Arena on Monday, April 4 starting at 2 p.m.; Wednesday, April 6 starting at 6 p.m.; Thursday, April 7 starting at 8 p.m. and Tuesday, April 9 starting at noon.

Tickets will be distributed from the John T. Washington Center on Saturday, April 9, starting at noon.
