The University of Florida Student Government was created by students to act as a direct liaison between the university and its students. With this comes a great responsibility to lead with the best interests of every Gator at heart and inform every one about the progress of this organization.
This student led initiative intends to promote community action, healthy dialogue, and education amongst the UF community.

Students may now drink Gatorade inside our on-campus gyms through new vending options! Enjoy an ice cold Gatorade while working on your gains in our campus recreational facilities.
During decal hours of 8:00AM to 3:30PM, students without a decal may now park in the Bledsoe Lot to go to Southwest Rec as long as they register their vehicles through the Passport Parking Mobile Pay app or through http://www.ppprk.com/park. This is imperative to avoid a ticket.
The Bledsoe Lot is located to the side of Southwest Rec, across from the Center for Outdoor Recreation and Education and behind the soccer fields.

UF has a new partnership with Tutor Matching Service by which UF students are able to sign up to become a tutor. You can elect to tutor online or in person and even set your availability and rate (average is $15/hour). You don't have to be a professional tutor to sign up - just feel comfortable teaching math, science, or whatever subject you choose.
When you sign up, a background check as well as a UF conduct check will be performed (at no cost to you). You'll also be required to complete an online tutor training class (also no cost).
Please note that the SG Office will be closed.
