Please review FGCU Parking Policies and Maps.

Students and projects may be dropped off at Alico Arena; however, vehicles may NOT dwell in front of Alico Arena – please utilize surrounding parking lots. Make arrangements to contact students (by cell phone) if they need to be picked up at the same sidewalk location.
