For public universities, it's pretty much just USF. There are your average public community colleges as well.

I know you want public universities, but UT is an extremely nice school. Of course it is also an extremely expensive school.

Although it isn't exactly in Tampa, SPC is a school that I heard was pretty nice. Of course I believe it is a private school, but thought I'd mention it.

USF is about it, but I was always warned against it.

And with schools such as UF, FSU, UCF, and others in the state, there are MUCH better options.

UT is the University of Tampa. It is close to the actual city of Tampa, and the campus is extremely nice. The saying is true: "you get what you pay for." However, unless you have an extreme amount of wealth, it probably isn't a realistic option.

USF is not very hard to get into.
