Parking seems to be quite a sore subject with UCF students. Most students arrive on campus 30 minutes early in anticipation of not being able to find an immediate spot. Students often circle around in the garages and the lots waiting for other students to walk to their car, then, resembling stalkers, they follow these students to their cars. Finding a spot can be competitive when it comes to a bunch of impatient students trying to make it to class. Don't let someone steal a spot from under you. Use your blinkers and remain cool.
Most students frequent the campus in the beginning of each semester, causing a real headache where parking is concerned. After about the first month, parking becomes a little easier. Don't expect to luck out with a superstar spot close to your classroom. Be prepared to trek across campus in the heat. Sometimes, students have to park as far away as the arena to find a parking spot. You just have to keep driving until you find a spot; you never know when someone is leaving campus. Never park in a spot that isn't designated for students (faculty spot, handicapped spot); Parking Services will catch you and you'll be sure to find a green parking ticket waiting for you on your windshield. Follow all signs and permit procedures when parking!
