Map to CREOL

For first-time visitors, it will help to download and print a campus map. Look for Gemini Blvd, which encircles the campus. Follow Gemini Blvd around to the far east side of campus to find the CREOL building.

The north entrance to campus is at the corner of Gemini Blvd. North & Alafaya Trail. There is a large electronic information sign at this entrance (The main entrance to the UCF campus is at the intersection of Alafaya Trail & University Blvd. If you enter campus on University Blvd, turn left onto Gemini Blvd West and then go straight, wind through Greek Park, and turn right onto Gemini Blvd. North).

There are two large parking garages on the northeast side of campus: Garage C and Garage D. There is only one small entrance road to the CREOL building parking lots, and you will find it between the C and D garages. The road is called Gemini Loop and it is also one of the entrance points to Garage C, which is a good close place to park.

To park even closer to the building, keep reading: Gemini Loop takes you directly to a stop sign at the entrance of a large parking lot. However, this lot is for faculty and staff only. So, go straight through it to the far end, where you will see our building. If you angle into the parking lot behind the CREOL building (in the lot closest to the our loading dock) there are free parking spots only for CREOL visitors. The spots are marked with tall signs. You don’t need a permit for these spots, but do tell our receptionist when you sign in at the front desk.

If the free CREOL visitor spots are all taken, you can park in any un-numbered vacant spot in Garage C, but you will need a ‘Hang Tag’ daily parking pass. The CREOL receptionist can give you a free Hang Tag parking pass when you come into the building, or you can buy one at the vending machines located in the lot or Garage.

CREOL is a secure building; to enter at a side or rear door during business hours you must buzz our receptionist to let you in. Or just walk around to the main front entrance. Please remember to sign in at the front desk.
