Central Florida weather is notoriously unpredictable. When the rain hits, it hits hard, and without warning. This leaves students on the UCF campus stranded until storms lets up.

We are UCF students who have begun working with a NYC startup called 'brellaBox on a solution to our unpredictable Florida rain: umbrella sharing.

'brellaBox creates umbrella rental machines that would allow UCF students to use a student ID to rent an umbrella from any 'brellaBox. When the rain lets up, the umbrella can be dropped off at the nearest box. The plan is to rollout 20 boxes at first in strategic locations on the UCF campus, ensuring students are never without an umbrella.

UCF has the chance to be the first university in the nation to implement an umbrella sharing eco-system. If you want to see umbrella sharing on campus, let the University know by signing our petition!
