The demand for parking spaces at the Federal University of São Carlos increases year after year with the inclusion of an increasing number of courses and students enrolled in on-site undergraduate and graduate programs. The analysis of this demand can be done considering the UFSCar campus as a Travel Generator Hub, since, based on that, it is possible to characterize the types of trips attracted to this establishment. This enables the use of methods (such as the CET (1983) or the ITE (2008)) that specifically preach about travel demand in higher education institutions. Still looking at the current situation of vacancies offered on campus, a study is needed to determine if they, in general, meet specifications dictated by transit agencies in Brazil. This study is also related to the arrangement of parking spaces. Vehicles parked on the São Carlos campus were counted on five different dates to define the critical demand and, in a later stage, the value obtained was compared with the number of spaces that the Nunes Method (2005) dictates to be necessary. The current deficit is approximately one thousand vacancies, showing that now and in a ten-year horizon, the demand will not be met. A comparison was also made with other existing methods: that of CET (1983) has the number of spaces met, while those of DENATRAN (2001) and São Carlos (2011) do not.
