Kroger Field COVID Testing Moves to College Way, Impacts Parking

College Way will temporarily shift to one-way northbound traffic from Alumni Drive to Sports Center Drive.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 20 , 2021) — Beginning Monday, Aug. 23, College Way will temporarily shift to one-way northbound traffic from Alumni Drive to the Sports Center Drive three-way stop at the Green Lot entry.

The College Way East Lot on the University of Kentucky campus will host the community COVID-19 testing, as it relocates from its current location at the Kroger Field Blue Lot. Testing will be available from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, with the exception of home football game days.

Campus Green Route bus service will be modified to avoid College Way (see attached map). In addition, the College Way East Lot will not be available for periphery (K) permit holder parking. Periphery permit holders can park in the Red, Blue and Commonwealth Drive lots as well as the College Way West and Wildcat Court lots.

The University of Kentucky is increasingly the first choice for students, faculty and staff to pursue their passions and their professional goals. In the last two years, Forbes has named UK among the best employers for diversity, and INSIGHT into Diversity recognized us as a Diversity Champion four years running. UK is ranked among the top 30 campuses in the nation for LGBTQ* inclusion and safety. UK has been judged a “Great College to Work for" three years in a row, and UK is among only 22 universities in the country on Forbes' list of "America's Best Employers."  We are ranked among the top 10 percent of public institutions for research expenditures — a tangible symbol of our breadth and depth as a university focused on discovery that changes lives and communities. And our patients know and appreciate the fact that UK HealthCare has been named the state’s top hospital for five straight years. Accolades and honors are great. But they are more important for what they represent: the idea that creating a community of belonging and commitment to excellence is how we honor our mission to be not simply the University of Kentucky, but the University for Kentucky.
