Welcome to campus Ospreys! Parking Permits are a must have when you park your vehicle here.
Buy your permit as soon as permits go on sale and you have registered for classes. Permit sale dates can be viewed through Osprey Update for Students, and on this web page. Permits are sold on a "first come, first served" basis, because some of the more desirable permits have set sales limits and will sell out. Discount Permits are always available.
Please be aware that more permits are sold than the number of parking spaces since students do not come to campus every day from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Fortunately, varying class schedules allow more spaces to be available, but some of the spaces may not be at your favorite lot or garage.
The below sales dates apply to students that have the following credit hours prior to registering for classes:
The following sales dates apply to Housing students:

Expiration dates are displayed on the permits. An annual permit year includes August 16 till August 15 of the following year. For example, the 2013-2014 permit year began on August 16, 2013 and will expire August 15, 2014. Unlike a Term permit, which may last from five to six months. For example, the 2014 Spring Term permits started selling December 4, 2013 and will expire May 15, 2014.
Parking with an expired permit will result in a citation.
Visit Parking & Transportation Services in Building 52. We will provide you with another temporary permit.
If you have not received your decal after 21 business days from the online order date, please visit us and we will assist you in obtaining one.
For an affixed style permit to be valid for parking at UNF, it must be displayed unaltered and it must be permanently affixed using the permit's adhesive properties to the exterior glass of the vehicle. It is recommended to adhere the sticker on the exterior of the driver's side rear window or on the driver's side rear bumper so that is clearly visible to the parking patrollers. Using any type of tape other than the permit's adhesive will result in a citation.
For unusually constructed vehicles, please contact the Parking and Transportation Services (904) 620-2815 for any exceptions to this required permit placement. Please note that the permit must be clearly visible when the vehicle is parked on campus. Parking with the rear bumper up against a wall in a garage such that a permit affixed to the rear bumper cannot be seen or having a tool box in a pick-up obscuring the view of a permit affixed to the rear window are examples of offenses that will result in parking citations.
If your four-wheeled vehicle is in the repair shop and you are driving a four-wheeled loaner, visit Parking & Transportation Services, Building 52 to obtain a temporary permit valid for one day. If you need a temporary permit for more than one day, you will need to provide a note from the repair shop stipulating the duration of repairs. You may obtain up to six temporary parking permits per semester per parking account from Parking Services, Building 52.
The temporary issued permit will be of the same permit category of the original purchased permit. If the windshield with the affixed permit is broken or if you sell your vehicle, bring the permit or pieces of it to Parking & Transportation Services, Building 52 to obtain the same category replacement parking permit for free. If your primary vehicle is a two-wheeled motorcycle and it is damaged in an accident, should you choose to drive a four-wheeled vehicle as your primary vehicle going forward, you must pay in full for the new permit.
Yes; when a person who owns a valid UNF parking permit arrives on a two-wheeled motorized vehicle, a one-day temporary parking permit can be issued for parking in any motorcycle spaces on campus. The temporary parking permit will be marked by Parking Services as being valid for a motorcycle and motorcycle parking spaces only.
The individual of the two-wheeled vehicle is responsible for the display of the temporary parking permit as they deem appropriate as long as it is completely visible to a person standing next to the vehicle. If the valid UNF parking permit is not displayed it will be cited for being in violation. The citation is registered to the license tag owner and they must either pay or appeal the citation.
Do not park on the grass or in a space that is specially marked outside of the allowable spaces from the permit you have purchased. Please review information listed on permit types and parking spaces allowed, listed above on this page: What parking locations allowed with specific parking permits?
Each ramp parking space has a visual white line at the back end and vehicles or items attached to vehicles cannot extend over this line when parked in these spaces. Citations will be issued to vehicles not parked within the identifiable space boundaries. Also, follow the approved guideline for properly displaying the permit, listed above on this page: How is the permit supposed to be displayed on the vehicle?
You may pay your citation, through an online link Pay Citations, or you may pay in person at Building 52 (Parking & Transportation Services). Another option includes filing an appeal within 14 calendar days of citation being issued. To file an appeal, you will need to fill out the appeal form and it will be reviewed by an appeal committee. Appeal forms are available online through link Ticket Appeals.
***14 calendar day example: If you get a ticket on a Tuesday, 14 calendar days is the second Monday, not the second Tuesday. Don’t get caught being a day late with your payment.***
