News and Updates
The 2018 USF Homecoming events, scheduled during the week of October 15th – 21st, will significantly impact parking and traffic across campus, especially in the area of the Yuengling Center and its surrounding parking lots. Please carefully review the information provided and plan to arrive early on campus to allow time to find a parking space.
In addition to the closings listed below, portions of other lots may be closed to provide prearranged reserved parking for event guests. Parking lots will be impacted as follows:
|Parking Lot||Date Impacted|
|22D (Yuengling Center)||Closed from Thur., 10/18 through Fri., 10/19 for Homecoming Carnival|
|BSN Grass Lot||Open to the USF community from Thur., 10/18 to Fri., 10/19. This temporary lot will close at 10:00 pm Fri., 10/19. Any remaining vehicles in the lot will receive a citation|
|3A, 3B, & 3C (Theatre/MSC)||Closed on Friday, 10/19 for Parade float set up|
Street Closures on Friday, October 19th: Portions of Holly Drive, Palm Drive, Maple Drive, Alumni and Leroy Collins Boulevard will close at 6:45 pm for the 7:00 pm Homecoming Parade. Roadways will reopen after the parade has passed and roads are clear. Please plan alternate travel routes on campus to avoid these areas on Friday evening.
We recommend parking in the Beard or Laurel parking garages which both offer convenient Bull Runner shuttle service to buildings around the impacted areas. Lots 18B and 18T, located off Sycamore Drive, may also serve as good parking lot options for those who typically park in the Yuengling Center lots.

USF Parking & Transportation Services is continually improving our services. We have added a new Bull Runner "Express" route in direct response to the needs of the campus community.
The MSC Express runs from north campus directly to the Marshall Student Center and back. When classes are in session, the MSC Express route operates Monday through Friday from 8:30 am until 11:30 am and 3:30 pm until 6:30 pm.
Due to the recent 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) passed by the Federal Government, the University no longer offers pre-tax payroll deduction as a payment option for parking permits. We will, however, continue to offer payroll deduction as a post-tax payment option. We also accept Visa, MasterCard, or Discover.
The northeast section of Lot 32 will be temporarily closed from February 12, 2018 through September 30, 2019, during construction of the Moffitt Clinical Support Building. Alternate "S" and "E" parking can be found in Lots 9A, 19, 38U. "S" parking is also available on levels 5 & 6 of the Laurel Garage with "E" parking on Level 6, the top deck, of the Laurel Garage. There is a Bull Runner bus stop beside the Laurel Garage; bus routes B & E make a stop at the college of Nursing (MDN). For further information please see the Administrative Services' Construction Impact website here.
Hillsborough Area Regional Transit (HART) route changes serving the University of South Florida (USF) Tampa campus
Beginning Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017 HART routes 5, 6, and 18, will no longer provide direct service to destinations on the USF Tampa campus.
HART Routes 5 and 6 will be re-routed along the perimeter of campus on East Fletcher Avenue and East Fowler Avenue. Route 18 will be eliminated.
Employees and students will have the option to connect between HART and USF Bull Runner buses using a valid USFCard. On campus destinations with previous direct service provided by HART may require more than one transfer with Bull Runner; please plan accordingly.
USF Parking and Transportation Services will monitor Bull Runner routes and adjust resources to accommodate increases in ridership due to this change.
