Name Badges

A name badge will be ordered for you, if you don’t already have one. When the badge comes in, it will be placed in your mailbox.

Office Supplies

Supplies are available in your department. If you need supplies, please see the departmental staff assistant.


To obtain a parking decal and faculty identification card, go to the Campus Security Building (next to the Bryant Student Union at the Ocala Campus). If an instructor must drive a different vehicle on occasion, an additional parking permit may be obtained from the Office of Public Safety, or the instructor may print and complete a one-day parking permit and post it in the windshield (see https://inside.cf.edu/forms/AF-PS5_Special_Parking_Permit.pdf).
