Site Use Permits

The Arboretum encourages both academic and non-academic activities within the University of Central Florida’s natural lands (Click Here for Map). Site use permits help us protect our natural areas, and allow us to minimize conflicts between users, prevent unsuitable uses, and coordinate projects with management activities. They also enable us to track and document use of our natural lands for program assessment. Anyone wanting to use the campus natural areas for teaching, research or other sponsored activities needs to fill out the appropriate online form below and submit it at least two weeks prior to the requested use.

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 take longer for requests to use areas under conservation easement (Click Here for Map) .  Therefore, we encourage early submission of applications to allow ample time for review and processing.  If you have any questions please contact Jennifer Elliott, Assistant Directo of Arboretum, at or (407)-823-4702.
