The Arboretum encourages both academic and non-academic activities within the natural lands. 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.

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 the use of our natural lands for program assessment.

Please review the General Use Rules and Permitting Process and fill out the Site Use Permit below.  Site use permit applications must be submitted at least 2 weeks prior to requested use. We strongly encourage early submission of applications to allow ample time for review and processing.  If you have any questions please contact John Guziejka, Biologist at UCF Natural Resources, at
