Summer B, Fall, and Innovation Academy Freshman Admits:
All new freshmen admitted for residential programs starting Summer B, Fall or Innovation Academy will attend a two-day overnight Preview Program (orientation). This program will begin at 8:00 a.m. on day one and conclude at 5:00 p.m. of day two. During Preview, students will engage in small group breakouts with orientation leaders as well as a faculty academic advisor. Students will learn about campus resources, review University and major expectations and requirements, receive Common Read Book, and create and register for first semester courses. This program is an overnight experience that will include a one-on-one advising appointment, course registration, Gator 1 Central, campus resource presentations, and Preview Course Registration Confirmation. Do not make plans on day two which will prevent you from staying until 5:00 p.m. There is NO possibility to leave before 5:00 p.m. on day two. Students attending the two day session will be provided overnight accommodations in a UF Residence Hall for the first day of the program. Family members will not be provided overnight accommodations and will need to make their own accommodations for the evening. Students will need to provide their own linens and towels for the overnight stay. Students can choose to pay for an additional night, the evening prior to the start of the session if they choose to.

I lost/never received my parking permit. How can I get one?
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org at least three working days prior to your session and we can provide you with a replacement. Please include your UFID in the email. You can also pick up a permit the day of your session, but you will need to park in the Large Commuter Lot first and quickly return to place the permit on your dash.
