Below are some important tips to help everyone on campus experience a safe and enjoyable day.
What classes will be in session on game day?
UCF will continue last season’s policies of conducting classes on the main campus and in the Central Florida Research Park through 3 p.m.
The main campus and university offices in the Research Park will close for normal operations at 3 p.m. in order to allow adequate time for a smooth transition to game day activities. Classes and normal operations at the Rosen College of Hospitality Management and UCF’s regional campuses will also end at 3 p.m.
Faculty members who teach classes that are in progress at 3 p.m. may choose to conduct the portion of their classes that occurs before 3 p.m.
Certain personnel will be required to work past 3 p.m. Please speak with your supervisor about how your area will handle operations after 3 p.m.
UCF will re-open for normal operations, including regular class and activity schedules, at 6 a.m. Friday, Oct. 10.
When will parking lots open for fans?
Most campus parking lots will open for fans at 4 p.m. The E lots (those closest to Bright House Networks Stadium) and Garage F will open at 2 p.m. for fans who have Golden Knights Club or UCF Athletics Association parking passes for those lots.
The open-container waiver that allows alcohol consumption for fans 21 and older will be in effect from 4 p.m. until game start.
