As a new or even a veteran college student parent, you probably have lots of questions. We invite you to submit those questions, and we will find the answers from a UNF expert, a fellow parent who faced the same issue, or from some other source. What's on your mind? E-mail email@example.com to submit your question. Put "FAQ" in the subject line. Then check back in a few weeks to find the answer.
Check on the Housing and Residence Life website for the
cost and information for Intersession storage for August. If you are interested
in storage for the entire summer, most of the local self–storage facilities
have discounts for UNF students with ID.You or your student can call a week
ahead or pre-book to take advantage of current specials and to guarantee a set
rate. I have not visited the following locations nor does the University
endorse them, but here are some of the closer businesses to call to get the
best rate and location for your student:

The Community First Credit Union has a branch office on campus and many students have accounts there. It isn’t required to have an account with the campus branch of Community First. It just makes it easier for many of the students, especially those who don’t have transportation. One of the benefits is that they know the students and provide financial education for them. If you don’t have a branch of Community First in your city, this is what you would do to transfer money to the Community First account. Check to see what credit unions are in your area. Then visit this web site, www.cuservicecenter.com. If your credit union is on the list, then you can go there (without having an account) and give them your student’s account number and they will transfer the money for you at the time you are there so your son or daughter will get it immediately.
If you prefer, check out the local banks to find a student account that fits your needs and open an account at a bank. There are many branches near the university.
The meal plan is purchased from Chartwell’s, the campus food services vendor, and the value of the meal plan plus dining dollars is transferred to the Osprey1 Card which will be swiped when the student eats in the cafeteria or another facility on campus. If you want to add more value to the meal plan, you will call and give them a credit card number or send a check.
In addition to the meal plan there is another stripe on the Osprey1card where value can also be added. This will be used in laundry machines, vending machines, for making copies in the library, and making purchases at the bookstore, campus eating facilities or at local restaurants, a drug store and a gas station near the university. Money can be added at the Office of Business Services by cash or check. Value can be added with a credit card at the www.osprey1card.com website.

usually has some good deals, in some cases the air fare is less than a tank of
gas one way. It saves a lot of time plus the expense of parents driving to pick
up their student and possibly an overnight stay. Be on the lookout for deals
and try to book in advance – from a satisfied parent in Fort Lauderdale.
