Why do I have to buy a permit?
The Parking program is an auxiliary unit, thereby being self-supporting. Revenues from parking permits and tickets are used for staffing, maintenance, and improvements to existing lots and facilities.
The only exception to this is persons with a handicap hangtag. They are not required to purchase a parking permit at UWF.
If I purchase my permit online, will I have to pay the $15.00 convenience fee?
No. Parking permits are the only item that can be purchased from UWF online without paying the convenience fee.
I am only taking a night class. Do I still need a permit?
Yes. All students or employees who park on campus must register their vehicles and purchase and display a permit (decal or hangtag). This includes anyone on campus at night taking classes.
How is parking designated?
Parking is designated by signage. In each lot there are signs designating parking. Parking is further designated by permit color. For example, commuters are issued green permits and the signs designating commuter parking will have the words COMM in a black box.
Where is the best place to park?
Finding a space is some lots can be a challenge during peak hours. However, some lots contain spaces which are open to ALL permit holders. These are Lots J, L, M and Z. Lots J and L are between the tennis courts and the Center for Fine and Performing Arts and Lot Z is just south of Martin Hall.
