There are no classes taught at the University of Florida’s East Campus along Waldo Road. Instead, the majority of the 450 or so employees working in the complex of brick buildings behind a wrought iron fence handle mostly administrative duties.
Departments such as payroll, Web and data services were moved here to free up room at the congested main campus.
Now, the eastside campus is facing its own space constraints, as the packed parking lot on most weekdays shows. An application to the city of Gainesville seeks to use a small parcel of land the university already owns for overflow parking.
