Visitor Permits

Welcome to UCF! Whether you’re visiting for the first time or you are charging back to your alma mater, we are glad you are here. Visitors have different parking options for short term or extended day visits. Stop by our Visitor and Parking Information Center for campus information, maps, permit orders and directions on navigating a successful visit to UCF. As a friendly reminder, please park with “nose in” as there is no back-in parking allowed on campus.

Options for Visitor Parking:

  1. Daily Permit: Virtual daily permits are available online or on the UCF app. Virtual permits use your license plate number as your parking permit. Please ensure your vehicle registration plate information is entered correctly to prevent parking violations. Once purchased, please park in any of D (green) parking areas located throughout the campus.
  2. Short Term Parking: Hourly spaces are available at the Visitor and Parking Information Center in parking lot B-6 for a maximum of 2 hours.
  3. Timed parking spaces: are located throughout the campus. Please take note of the time limit posted on signage at timed parking locations.  The university uses Passport Parking a mobile payment system for timed spaces. Smartphone users may go to to create an account. If parkers do not have a smartphone, go to for more info or call the phone number listed on the signs.
