UF opens web-based portal for public records requests
April 11, 2016
Beginning today, we encourage you to make public records requests through University of Florida’s new online Public Records Center at publicrecords.ufl.edu.
The website provides an efficient path to request police records or general university records all in one place. It also provides a section with answers to frequently asked questions and a way for you to monitor the progress of your requests online.
The web-based portal asks you to register and provide a password, but once you do you will be in the system. Only basic contact information is needed to ensure we are able to correspond with you regarding your request.
Once registered, future requests only require you to login in at the Public Records Center. The system also allows you to request records anonymously.
Media Relations and Public Affairs will monitor and manage the new web portal. We work closely with the University of Florida Police Department, the General Counsel’s Office and applicable departments to ensure records responsive to your requests are delivered in a reasonable timeframe.
