Arriving in Jacksonville and Getting to Campus
You may want to download our Campus Map to familiarize yourself with the campus.
During certain designated days, the UNF International Center offers transportation from Jacksonville International Airport (airport code: JAX) to campus for students who will be living on campus only. Information on the airport pick up days will be mailed to you with your DS-2019 and welcome packet. Students living on campus should notify our office of their arrival plans as early as possible so we can assist in making arrangements for checking-in with the Housing Department. . Students who will be living off campus will have to make their own transportation arrangements from the airport to their accommodations. All students are required to return the "Statement of Intent to Enroll" form in the DS-2019 welcome packet with their flight information and arrival plans filled in on the form.
If you plan to arrive before your housing is available for move-in, you may choose to stay temporarily in one of UNF's preferred hotels (see "Local Hotels" under "Visiting UNF").
