Who You Going to Call?

…When You Need Answers

The important contact info you need to have. Over the years there have been only a few times that I, as a parent, have felt the need to call the campus to resolve an issue. Generally, I try to get my kids to handle it themselves. However, knowing where to call for whatever the issue can be daunting.

For instance, when said student accrued a certain amount of parking tickets and was having a difficult time paying them online, she called the Transportation and Parking Office to figure it out. More information and other reasons you may have to make a call and contact this office are below.

Another example: When a friend had reason to believe her son may have been hazed by his fraternity during rush, she got in touch with The Office of Sorority and Fraternity Affairs.  352-392-1671. Email the director at jc@ufsa.ufl.edu

Fortunately, that situation was managed, but her next step was to call the President’s office.

President of UF: Ken Fuchs is the President of the University of Florida. His office is located at 226 Tigert Hall, P.O. Box 113150, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611

Phone: 352-392-1311
