There are about 2,000 parking spaces available to support the downtown campus. This includes dedicated permit parking spaces for students, faculty and staff, on-street and metered visitor spaces, and designated parking for residents and visitors of UnionWest at Creative Village.

Just like the main campus, parking permits are required to park in UCF lots and garages and parking spaces are designated by permit type. However, there is no overnight parking on the downtown campus or in the City garages at Creative Village.


The Amelia I Parking Garage (PG3) is the primary parking garage for “D” (green) and “R” (orange) permits. The Parramore Garage (PG1) is the secondary parking lot for “D” (green) and “R” (orange) permits.

Overflow parking for daily virtual permits is available on the 4th floor of the Parramore Garage or on any level of the Amelia Garage. Daily permits will be valid in all of the “D” (green) parking spaces in the Parramore Garage or UCF Amelia Garage. After 5:30 pm, daily permits are valid in red or blue spaces.

Metered parking along Livingston Street, as well as an hourly parking lot on Livingston Street adjacent to the Marriott Hotel, is managed by the City of Orlando. Meters for on-street parking spaces must be paid using the ParkMobile app.  UnionWest also has hourly parking available for visitors.
