UCF Arboretum

Site Use

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 and submit it, via email, at least two weeks prior to the requested timeframe.

Please review the General Use Rules and Permitting Process and fill out the Site Use Permit 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” (Click Here for Map) .  Therefore, it is best to fill out this application as early as possible to allow ample processing time.  If you have any questions please contact Jennifer Elliott, Coordinator of Arboretum Programs, at nature@ucf.edu or (407) 823-4702.
