Florida Tech's 2020 Homecoming festivities have been shifted from October to Spring 2021

As the university continues to respond proactively to the COVID-19 pandemic, we seek to ensure the safety of guests at our annual celebration. 

With municipal restrictions in place for large gatherings, and campus-based safety precautions that include limited public access, the postponement of the multi-day event is the sensible approach to preserving Homecoming and presenting it next year. It is our hope to be able to offer our students and alumni all of the same activities and events, including the 5K Run/Walk, Homecoming Fest with the free concert in Downtown Melbourne, and the Florida Tech Gala here on campus. We will continue to assess the challenges and public safety concerns and make final decisions as we get closer to the spring semester. The new date will be announced as soon as it is finalized.

The Homecoming theme “Relentless Twenties” will remain for the spring 2021 celebration—even more fitting now! We hope you will join us when the time comes and it's safe!
