UNF Student Parking
Welcome to campus Ospreys! Parking Permits are a must have when you park your vehicle here.
Immediately upon registering for classes, buy your permit as soon as permits go on sale! 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, such as Blue Lot permits, have set sales limits and will sell out. The Gray Lot permit category never sells out.
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.
You must be registered for Fall classes prior to purchasing your permit.
For commuter students (not living on campus): The Blue Lot permit category is SOLD OUT!
Other available categories include: Night Blue Lot (valid after 4 p.m.), Gray Lot and Motorcycle.
For Housing students (living in dorms): All Housing permits are still available for purchase.
To purchase a permit
Please visit Permit Info to verify permit fees.
Parking and Transportation Services has shifted from physical permit/passes to virtual permits, where you register your vehicle's license plate to be the virtual permit! This new system not only requires you to register your license plate, but it also requires you to park your vehicle "nose-in". For example, if a space is empty in front of the original selected parking space--do not pull forward and make sure the license plate is visible. This supports our enforcement recognition cameras to quickly scan the tags for valid permits.
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.
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 the portal: https://unf.t2hosted.com/.
***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.***
If a citation is not paid within 14 calendar days, a $10 late fee will be added to the citation amount. A hold will also be placed on your record, which will inhibit you from registering for classes, requesting transcripts to be sent to a prospective employer or to apply for grad school or transfer to a school in another location. Once you pay the fine, please be aware that it may take 4 - 24 hours for the record hold to be released.
No, the University Police Department issues citations for ALL non-permit violations 24 hours a day for 7 days a week.
Don't get the boot!
If you get three unpaid citations, your vehicle may be booted and may be towed--at your expense. Other violations include parking in a service area, fire lane, Lot 7, a Reserved space, a disability space (without a displayed disability placard or abusing the use of the placard) or if you obstruct traffic and create a safety hazard.
Immediately call Parking & Transportation Services at (904) 620-2815. To avoid vehicle damage, please do not attempt to remove the boot yourself or drive the vehicle with it on.
