2021 School of Music Concert Calendar

The majority of School of Music concerts are free. Registration for free events is encouraged for attendance tracking and marketing purposes. However, printing the e-ticket is not required. Proceeds from sales of ticketed events go to promote talented music students via scholarships. For ticketed event information, contact the Ticket Box Office at (904) 620-2878.

 

With more than 16,000 students taking classes and many scheduled events for the public, things can get pretty busy at UNF, especially weekdays. Parking regulations are strictly enforced 24 hours a day, seven days a week, first for safety and efficiency, but also to respect students, faculty and staff who have purchased annual or term parking permits. If you are attending music events at UNF, you must purchase a daily virtual permit from the Pay-by-Plate kiosks located on the first and third floors of Building 44, Fine Arts Center Parking Garage. In combination with the kiosks, a program known as Flowbird has been added to create the most efficient and beneficial parking system for our campus community. This program will give you the convenient opportunity to pay for your virtual parking permit online. To purchase, download the free Flowbird mobile app on your smart phone or visit flowbirdapp.com. Parking permits for University guests are required from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday and from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday. No permit is required from 5 p.m. Friday through 7 a.m. Monday unless there is a special event on campus. If you have any questions, please contact Parking and Transportation Services at (904) 620-2815.
