Lodging On or Near Campus 
  

The Reitz Union Hotel is located right at the heart of campus, inside the J. Wayne Reitz Union, the student union of the University of Florida.  The hotel front desk is on the ground level (next to Subway and Wells Fargo), while guest rooms are located on the top two floors of the union (levels 5 and 6).

There is a parking space reserved for your vehicle on the top level of the adjacent parking garage.  You will need a parking pass and room key to gain access through the top level gate.   You may temporarily park your vehicle in one of the 15-minute spaces located in the circle drive of 655 Reitz Union Drive, while checking-in.   The front desk is up the steps directly through the glass doors of the ground floor.  The circle drive is also the best option for unloading your luggage.
