Campus Map with Blue and Gray Lot Locations

If you are visiting UNF during the parking enforcement time frame, a parking permit is required to park on campus. Our system is based on virtual permits, where you register your vehicle's license plate to be the virtual permit. 

Single-day permits can be purchased online through the Flowbird app or by using one of the 14 conveniently located Pay-by-Plate kiosks. 

Debit or credit card is the only acceptable form of payment. 

Single Day Permits Options
Type Cost Parking Location Avoid Parking In
Blue $5 Inner core (Blue Lots) of campus Spaces marked Reserved, Faculty/Staff and Housing
Gray $2 Perimeter (Gray Lots) of campus Blue Lot spaces, spaces marked Reserved, Faculty/Staff and Housing

The permits are valid only for the calendar day you purchased it, not for a 24-hour period from the time that it was purchased. A Consecutive Multi-day Permit is not available, you must purchase a visitor permit each day you park on campus.

Once you have purchased a visitor permit, it is non-refundable.
