Please register to help us estimate attendance.


For complete visitor parking information, see the UNF Parking Services website. Basically, you can park in any space in a Blue or Gray surface lot or on the 2nd, 3rd or 4th floors of either the Arena or Fine Arts Center parking garages. Park nose-in and make a record of your license plate number. Then go to the nearest kiosk and pay the $5 daily parking fee. (A $2 daily permit also exists, but only allows you to park in the gray surface lots.) The Student Union is adjacent to the Arena Parking Garage, and on a Friday, there should be plenty of space, so we would recommend you park on the 2nd, 3rd or 4th floor of that structure.


For more information, contact Dr. Clayton McCarl.
