Vehicle Relocation Required for Home Football Games

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 28, 2019) — University of Kentucky’s football season opens this Saturday, which means that some parking permit holders will need to relocate their vehicles to accommodate the influx of Wildcat football fans.

Students and employees who park in the Periphery (K) parking lots at Kroger Field (Red, Blue and Orange), the Commonwealth Drive Lot, College Way East and West lots and Wildcat Court lots, as well as the Sports Center Garage (PS #7) and Sports Center Drive lots are required to relocate their vehicles before 7 a.m. on home football game days. 

In addition, Kroger Field Green Lot (E10, C10 and R10) permit holders must move their vehicles before 10 p.m. on the Friday before home football game days. Parking along University Drive is also prohibited beginning at 12:01 a.m. on game days. 

Vehicles may move to most relocation areas after 3:30 p.m. on Friday and must be moved back to permitted parking areas before 5 a.m. Monday.  

The vehicle relocation map with a complete list of relocation times can be found here. Failure to relocate your vehicle to the designated areas can result in citation or vehicle impoundment. 

In addition, the large Gluck Equine Center Lot and a portion of the Orange Lot are restricted to UK Football recreational vehicle (RV) permit parking starting at 7:30 p.m. on the Friday before home football games. As a result, members of the university community who park in these lots on Fridays should avoid parking in the designated RV areas if they anticipate they will need to remain on campus beyond 7:30 p.m.

Individuals who will be leaving prior to 7:30 p.m. are authorized to utilize these areas; however, vehicles remaining in the restricted areas after that time will be relocated by the university to the designated vehicle relocation area, located at the southwest corner of the Orange Lot adjacent to the Orange Lot Alumni Drive exit.
