Providing predictable parking guides the issuance of multiple parking decal types. This provides all who need to park on campus with a more precise target area for parking and a higher degree of predictability to find an available space.
Garage 14 opened in February 2020, adding 634 spaces to the campus parking supply for graduate and professional student commuters. In the surface lot on Gale Lemerand Drive south of Garage 14, 227 additional spaces have been allocated for student residents starting this fall. In addition, UF Transportation and Parking Services has increased the inventory of scooter parking spaces by creating Scooter Mega Zones at key locations at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center Garage, the Norman Garage near Sorority Row, Fraternity Row, and in the surface parking lot on Gale Lemerand Drive north of Garage 5. In mid-September, after campus parking demand is known, TAPS will evaluate underutilized parking capacities across campus to determine whether any adjustments may be needed.
