University of Tampa residents originally had core parking. The original core parking was set up just like an
apartment style parking meaning wherever the resident lived they were able to park closest to that

Third, faculty and staff, who actually are a separate group, also adjunct
faculty are another group. They felt they were the heart and soul of the university, so they should get the
most convenient parking.
