One of the best things about living in Downtown Orlando is the convenient location. UnionWest is within a 10-15 minute walk of the Central Business District, Orlando City Hall, Orange County Courthouse, Orlando City Soccer Stadium and Church Street Entertainment District. This is similar to walking across the UCF East Campus.


UnionWest offers convenient parking for student residents, guests and the general public. The integrated parking garage has 600 spaces and is located at 610 Federal Street.

The first 30 minutes of parking are free.



Residents of UnionWest have the opportunity to use assigned, 24-hour parking spaces in a designated area of the privately managed UnionWest garage, which is attached to the building and provides convenient and controlled access to the student housing.
