Employee Parking Permits for All Campuses Except Downtown
All faculty and staff parking permits expired on Friday, June 30, 2021. Beginning on Sunday, August 1, to request a new parking permit, follow these steps:
– Log in to Atlas
– Click on the Employees tab
– In the My Human Resources channel, select Update Your Information
– Click Parking Permit Application

All vehicles operated by employees in connection with attendance or employment at Valencia College must display a current parking permit. And yes, you can get a ticket if you do not have an updated permit.
Like in previous years, you will have a choice between a hang tag or a sticker, and you may register more than one vehicle provided that current registration information is supplied for each vehicle. New faculty/staff parking permits will expire on Sunday, June 30, 2024.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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:
- East and Winter Park Campuses and School of Public Safety – Mike Lopez, email@example.com
- Osceola, Lake Nona and Poinciana Campuses and Advanced Manufacturing Training Center – Misty Ellis Peaslee, firstname.lastname@example.org
- West Campus – Stan Knutkowitz, email@example.com
If you are a new employee who did not receive an employee ID due to our campus closure, visit the East, Lake Nona, Osceola, Poinciana, West or Winter Park Campus Security office (building locations listed above).
