Replacement Permits

(decals only)
May be issued for $15 for an annual permit or $7.50 for a semester permit provided the original permit is returned (even if in remnants) or proof of sale of the original vehicle is presented. Every effort should be made to keep the removed permit’s number intact. When the original permit, or sufficient remnants is not returned or proof of sale, the replacement fee shall be the full fee in effect at the time of the replacement. The full fee also applies to permits to replace those that are reported lost. The replacement fee for a stolen permit is $15.00; however, if a permit is stolen, a Parking & Transportation affidavit must be filled out at the main office prior purchasing a replacement permit

It is to your advantage to remove any permit from a vehicle that is sold or no longer in use. Permit numbers may be used as identifiers.

Temporary Permits

Temporary parking permits must be obtained when an unregistered, substitute vehicle is being parked on campus. A temporary permit may be obtained at the Visitor and Parking Information Center or at the Parking and Transportation Services Office during business hours. Temporary permits are issued at no charge and allows the same parking privileges as does the permanent decal for which it substitutes. A temporary permit may be issued for a maximum period of seven (7) days. A maximum of six (6) temporary permits may be issued to a university constituent in a single semester. Failure to obtain a temporary permit will result in a citation for registration violation. A temporary permit shall be displayed on the vehicle rearview mirror facing forward. A temporary permit is issued to a specific vehicle and is not transferable. Since hang tag permits are transferable from vehicle to vehicle, holders of hang tag permits may be issued a temporary permit for one day only.

Parking Meters

To facilitate short-term parking, timed parking spaces are located in various areas around campus. A parking permit is not required while parking in short-term, timed parking spaces; however, the appropriate fee must be paid even if a valid parking permit is on the vehicle. The time limits are posted. If you wish to extend your stay, users can extend their parking session up until the maximum time allotted. Smartphone users can also use the new service by going to to create their account. If parkers do not have a smartphone, the signage near meters will display a local phone number to call into.

Unless otherwise posted, short-term timed parking spaces are enforced 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“No Parking” Areas

Safety precautions necessitate some “No Parking” areas on the UCF campus. These areas must remain clear to permit other vehicles, to include emergency, service, and maintenance vehicles, to maneuver safely through the area. The absence of “No Parking” signs does not always mean that parking is permitted in an area. An example would be parking alongside curbed areas inside paved parking lots.

Loading Zones

Loading Zones are located in areas where parking may be limited, yet in areas where many people may need access.

For short-term parking needs, most buildings have “Loading Zones” that allow parking for service vehicles only. Some posted signs indicate the amount of time permitted. Some Loading Zones on campus are signed with posted time limits to provide access for individuals who depend on these spaces to make timely deliveries. The time limits encourage high turnover in areas where high turnover is needed. Vehicle operators should always check for signs depicting posted time limits.

For deliveries, Loading Zones should be used for delivering heavy items only. Persons delivering small packages are encouraged to use parking meters or designated short-term parking areas. If metered spaces are used, all posted fees must be paid.

Loading Zones are also available for the immediate pick-up and drop-off of passengers, and to provide disabled persons a place to be picked up or dropped off safely. During these instances, the drivers of vehicles picking up or dropping off passengers MUST remain with the vehicle.

All Loading Zones are designated tow-away zones, and are enforced 24 hours per day.
