Today is the first day of the Spring semester… and students are likely fighting for parking spots, wishing there was another garage to park in. They’ll have to wait a little bit longer to park in this one. Here are some updated photos of the construction progress on UCF’s newest parking garage, “H”.

After several months of sitework and underground utilities, UCF’s newest parking garage (Parking Garage “H”) is finally coming out of the ground. Prefabricated concrete pieces are being hoisted into place, starting with one of the stairwells as you can see above.
Here is a shot of one of the precast pieces arriving at the jobsite. There will be a steady stream of flatbeds carrying these pieces one-by-one to the jobsite as they are needed.

Sitework for UCF’s new $17,000,000 parking garage is underway. This garage is just west of the new Psychology building and north of Classroom I (which you can see in the background of the photo above).

UCF just launched a new carpool / ride-sharing website in conjunction with a company called Zimride. The idea is for users to post their routes and find people to ride with, thus reducing the number of cars on campus. Users who ride together can save (or even make) a little bit of money, while reducing the number of cars on campus and helping out the environment.
Even though construction of the new parking garage just started, parking is sure to be scarce again once Fall semester starts. Hopefully the new service will help to improve the parking situation on campus.
Zimride is being used at other large universities such as UCLA, West Virginia University, and the University of Michigan. You need a ucf.edu email address to sign up for the UCF-specific Zimride site. Check it out at http://zimride.ucf.edu/

Earlier this year, UCF opened new electric vehicle charging stations next to Memory Mall in parking lot D1. The charging station generates electricity using the solar panels that are mounted to the top of the steel structure. As electric vehicles start to enter the market in the coming years, these spaces will be used for general (student) parking. For now, they’re being used for research and other university uses.
