Parking control information update

These lots will return to regular parking control on the first day of classes, Monday, Aug. 22.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 10, 2022) — Summer parking control on the University of Kentucky campus ends Friday, Aug. 12, which means that summer parking permits will not be valid after that date.

Beginning Saturday, Aug. 13, and extending through Sunday, Aug. 21, the Kroger Field Periphery (K) lots, R19 lots and Remote (X) lots will not be controlled for parking permits. These lots are temporarily taken off control during this time to assist with student move-in. These lots will return to regular parking control on the first day of classes, Monday, Aug. 22.

Residential (R) parking areas will be controlled for lot-specific permits starting on Saturday, Aug. 13. These include: Rose Street Garage (R2), Cornerstone Garage (R5), Sports Center Garage and Complex Drive (R7), R10, R11, R12, R13, R14, R15, R17, R18, R29, R30 and R34. Residential lots are controlled for permits 24 hours a day, seven days a week during the academic year, unless otherwise posted.

Commuter (C) parking areas (C5, C7, C9 and C10) will require lot-specific parking permits starting on Monday, Aug. 15.

Please see this map for more details about student parking and control times.

As a reminder, employee lots are controlled for employee permits year-round.

With summer parking control ending, the Rose Street Garage (PS #2) and the Sports Center Garage (PS #7) will also return to regular permit control beginning 5 a.m. Monday, Aug. 15. Portions of these structures are traditionally made available to any valid UK permit over the summer, when parking demand is lower. Beginning ­Aug. 15, these structures will revert to authorized permits only.

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.
