Potential Parking Challenge

  • UF is hosting NCAA Softball Regionals and there are two games scheduled for Friday; one at noon and one at 2:30pm. A parking shuttle runs from the Phillips Center parking lot to the softball stadium so this could complicate parking issues for us and our guests.
  • Anthony Licari spoke with Phillips Center staff and was told that, while it might cause a little extra traffic and a bump in parking space utilization in their lot and garage, they don’t think it will be too big of a concern for us.
  • Having said that, please be aware that you may want to arrive earlier than you normally would and also alert your guests to this concern.
