June 17, 2021
We appreciate all of the hard work by our faculty and staff to prepare UCF to operate more aligned with the way we did before the pandemic beginning on June 23.
As we approach that date, I want to share some important reminders and updates.
Employees and supervisors who have yet to engage in conversations about what the return to campus means for them should do so as soon as possible.
For more information, frequently asked questions and resources to support employees and supervisors, visit our Guide to Our Return to Normal Operations.
Summer and Fall Parking Permits
Employees returning to campus this summer can consider multiple options for parking passes to determine what is most cost effective for them. Options include a summer semester pass, which is valid through Aug. 31, or daily parking permits, which may be suitable for employees working fewer days on campus.
The cost of semester passes varies depending on the permit purchased, and daily permits cost $5 or $3 after 5:30 p.m. Daily permits can be purchased online or at kiosks in most of the green (D) parking areas.
Semester permits, or annual permits for the entire 2020-21 academic year, are valid through Aug. 31. Permits for the 2021-22 academic year will go on sale starting July 26. Those permits will be valid starting on Sept. 1.
For more information, you can call 407-823-5812 or visit the department’s office in Garage B between 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Daily and semester permits can be purchased at http://parking.ucf.edu.
COVID Self-Checker and Updates
UCF continues to strongly encourage all employees to get fully vaccinated. The UCF Student Health Center is currently offering the Pfizer vaccine at no cost and by appointment, and there are many other opportunities for you to get vaccinated.
Beginning June 23, members of the campus community who are fully vaccinated may select an opt-out option in the COVID Self-Checker. These employees’ supervisors also will no longer receive emails about their employees filling it out.
Opting out is completely voluntary. The self-checker will remain available in the UCF Mobile app and online, and completing the self-checker will continue to be required for those who do not opt out or who are not fully vaccinated.
If you are showing symptoms of COVID-19 or are fully vaccinated but feeling sick, you should inform your supervisor, stay home, avoid contact with others and contact your healthcare provider.
Thank you for doing your part to help keep our campus community healthy, and for all you do for UCF.
