Downtown Campus Employee Parking Permits

For Downtown Campus employees, if you do not have a parking permit, and if you have a regularly scheduled reoccurring assignment downtown, have your supervisor contact Eugene Jones, executive dean, Downtown Campus, at or 407-299-5000, extension 1635. Faculty/staff parking is available with a Valencia College Downtown Campus parking permit on the third floor of the Paramore Parking Garage.

Employee IDs for All Campuses Except Downtown

Your ID from prior to the pandemic is still valid; however, when you return to campus, you may need to request to have your door access renewed, as access is deactivated every two years, per audit standards. If you find you must renew your access, call your campus Security office.

If you have a new job that requires different access, ask your supervisor to email your region’s director of security to request access:
