Parking Instructions

Please be advised that residential parking is limited on move-in days. Certain surface lots and the 1st/2nd floor of select garages will be converted into unloading zones during residential move-in days. Please note that unloading zones may not be the closest to residence halls and check-in stations. University Police will be overseeing traffic flow in and around surface lots. In specific lots, vehicle and driver contact information will be collected to ensure vehicles do not stand in unloading zones.

Parking and traffic patterns across campus will be strictly enforced to ensure continuous flow and prioritize pedestrian and vehicle safety. Do not park in fire lanes, service vehicle parking, or reserved parking at any time during move-in.

When You Arrive:

Step 1 – Head to your Unloading Zone:

Upon arrival, please proceed to the designated unloading zone for your community, as indicated in the provided chart. Before arriving on campus, please confirm your community and housing assignment.

Step 2 – Begin Unloading:

Once directed to a parking space within your unloading zone, begin unloading your belongings. If available, move-in volunteers will be present in the lots to assist students, families, and guests. If you do not see a move-in volunteer nearby, please locate the Information Tent and request assistance. Please note that availability of assistance is contingent upon the volume of arriving vehicles. It is highly recommended that families bring their own dollies, wagons, or handtrucks. Students are encouraged to avoid overpacking and bringing multiple or oversized vehicles. 

Step 3 – Check-In Stations:

Upon arrival, residents should proceed directly to check-in stations with their UCF ID card. Wait vary based on how many residents arrive during that time. To minimize congestion at check-in stations, it is suggested that residents check-in while their families and guests continue to unload their vehicles and move them to long-term parking. Check-in staff will provide important information, issue keys, encode ID cards, and provide details about hall meetings and programs. Students may then return to the unloading zone or choose to meet their families at their housing assignment. Buildings will be open and accessible during move-in hours, and residents are reminded to keep apartment and room doors closed when not present.

Move-in equipment can be signed out for use upon arrival. Please note that Housing and Residence Life has limited equipment. Failure to return equipment to the check-in tent or community office may result in charges. Any missing or damaged equipment costs will be assessed to the student’s housing account. Please be aware that the items are not cleaned between use, so use them at your own risk. Students and families who sign out equipment must be responsible for returning it; do not had off equipment to another person, as it may result in a missing equipment fee charged to the student’s account. All equipment use is at your own risk. Always PUSH do not PULL equipment for your safety
