A limited amount of free all-day parking spaces will be reserved for this event (for non-UF attendees only) in the UF Bookstore and Welcome Center Garage, which is adjacent to the Reitz Union, but they will only be available via an attendant between the hours of 7:30 and 8:30 am. Other pay to park spots may be available in that garage after that time. If you arrive after that time, however, it is recommend that you take an Uber or cab (352-371-1515) onto campus as the likelihood of finding parking diminishes after 9 am. Also, a parking permit is required is every other nearby lot on campus. UF Transportation and Parking Services charges $35 for parking infractions.


Flying to Gainesville, Florida

Gainesville Regional Airport

Flying into our local airport (GNV) is very convenient and economical these days. It is only about 30 minutes away from campus; versus the almost 2 hour drive you are likely to encounter when flying into Jacksonville (JAX) or Orlando (MCO) airports.
