Parking Information

All UF distance learning students who want parking passes for the institute need to send their names, UF id numbers, license plate number, and address to Tina Williams ( by June 1, 2008. The cost of the parking pass will be $5 per week, but students will need to pay in person at Parking and Transportation when they arrive on campus on the morning of Monday, July 7th.  The parking office opens at 8 am. We are asking that students send this information to Tina ahead of time, however, to speed up the process when they arrive at the Parking Office. Students who do not send this information to Tina by the June 1st deadline will need to make their own arrangements for on or off campus parking.


Hotel Information

N.B. Due to changes in hotel policies, we can no longer reserve blocks of rooms for the dates of the summer institute (this year it is July 7-17, class begins the morning of July 7th).
