Events Parking

A well-planned event allows attendees to focus on the event. The event should be an enjoyable experience and give the attendees a desire to return in the future for other events. Parking arrangements must be properly coordinated to make them part of the enjoyable experience, for this to occur, Parking and Transportation Services must be consulted by the event sponsor at the beginning of the event planning process so proper parking arrangements can be made.

Parking and Transportation Services require that all guests outside of the university to have an approved parking pass. All event sponsors hosting an event, where guests from outside of the university will attend, must require that guests receive one approved parking pass per day.

To ensure that your event runs smoothly, please contact the Department of Parking and Transportation no later than five (5) days prior to the date of the event to make parking arrangements. 


Guest Permits

All guests that are visiting the main campus are required to display an approved parking pass on their vehicle. Daily “scratch off” passes or approved electronic passes may be used by department guests. These passes are available for purchase at $ 1.00 per pass via interdepartmental transfer of funds. If not paid by interdepartmental transfer, the cost will be $5.00 per pass. If a guest arrives after 5:30pm, the cost is $3.00 each.

The passes and payment can be processed at the Parking & Transportation main office located in Garage B during the hours of 7:30am and 4:30pm (M-F). The event sponsor may design electronic passes, but they must be approved by the Department of Parking and Transportation Services to avoid citation issuance to guests. Electronic passes are more convenient, because they may be emailed to guests before an event. The event sponsor will be responsible for counting the number of approved electronic parking passes used during the event. After informing Parking & Transportation Services of the amount of electronic parking passes used, the Department of Parking and Transportation will process an invoice based on the amount of electronic parking passes used.

–       These passes are prohibited from being used by faculty, staff and students of UCF
–       Passes are valid for one date and one time only
–       Passes are prohibited from being duplicated or altered in any way
