Teaching and research conducted within the University of Central Florida’s natural lands is encouraged. Through site use permits, the protection of biological resources on campus is accomplished. Permits allow us to minimize conflicts between users, to prevent unsuitable uses, and to coordinate projects with management activities. In addition, as part of the stewardship of the natural areas on campus, teaching and research activities utilizing the campus are documented through the site use permits. Anyone wanting to use the campus natural areas for teaching or research is asked to fill out the appropriate form below and submit it, via email, as soon as possible.
Please review the general use rules & permitting process and fill out the appropriate Site Use Application (see links below). Processing time usually takes between 2-3 weeks, but can extend past this time frame for research and education projects requesting to use a “prohibited area”. Therefore, it is best to fill out an application as early as possible to allow ample processing time. Please e-mail us to submit questions or comments.
