Catholic Campus Ministry at the University of Florida, known as Catholic Gators, serves hundreds of students by providing a strong Catholic community for college students who are seeking faith, formation, and fellowship.

Catholic Gators has a staff consisting of several campus ministers and a team of FOCUS missionaries who work to guide students on their faith journey.
