Floor Decals

UF has centrally purchased a total of 5,000 combined of the six designs of UF-floor traffic decals for use in UF buildings.

Units can request decals from Facilities Services/Central Supply (1026 Magnolia Avenue):

Have a designated point of contact or your HR liaison for your College or VP unit, submit the below information to

  • College or unit name & 4-digit department ID
  • Quantity of each decal style requested (since there is a limited supply, please think carefully about how many are needed of each type)
    • Styles: Orange Arrow, Yellow Arrow, Yellow Gator Foot, Blue Gator Foot, Go with the Flow, 2 Bits
  • Desired pick-up date/time
  • Name of employee who will pick-up**

The decals are designed for hard floor usage but according to the printer who made them, will work on carpet.  Floors should be cleaned before the decals are stuck to them.  Floors can be waxed over the decal.  Additional information about installation and cleaning are available by email from Central Stores when decals are picked up.


**After your unit identifies where the decals need to go, Facilities Services can help apply decals.  To contact Facilities Services use one of these options:
