We recognize that many in our UCF community continue to struggle with the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. We have heard your concerns about balancing your studies, work and personal responsibilities, and as we prepare for a return to campus for the fall semester, we want to provide assistance when possible.

With that in mind, the university is extending parking permits through the fall semester at no cost. All current parking permits set to expire on Aug. 31, 2020, will be honored through Dec. 31, 2020.

If you do not have a current parking permit that expires on Aug. 31 and you plan to park on campus this fall, please visit the Parking and Transportation website beginning July 27 to purchase a one-semester or multi-semester permit. Choose contactless delivery and have your permit mailed to you. If you expect to visit campus infrequently, consider purchasing a daily or hourly parking permit at the Visitor and Parking Information Center or at various pay and display machines located throughout the campus.

Parking permits are valid on the main campus, as well as the Lake Nona, Rosen and UCF Downtown campuses. For more information, contact Parking and Transportation at

Parking permit fees and student transportation access fees generate revenue that allows the continued operation of Parking and Transportation Services, including campus shuttles that carry nearly 2 million passengers a year, annual debt payments on nine parking garages, construction of surface parking lots and maintenance of parking facilities.

Even when campus operations are scaled back, those expenses continue. Even so, UCF has not raised these fees for more than eight years, and they will not increase for 2020-21.

UCF will keep you regularly updated about the return to UCF via the university’s coronavirus website, and we also will be using the UCF Mobile app to share information. You can send any questions to

This has been a challenging time for us all, but I look forward to the return of our Knights family to our beautiful campus this fall.

Charge On!
