Free Parking During Move Out; Take Bikes Home for Summer
LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 6, 2014) ― Wednesday, May 7 through Friday, May 9, University of Kentucky students and parents moving out of certain residence halls will be offered two hours of free parking.
South Campus residents in the Kirwan-Blanding area will be able to park in Sports Center Garage (PS #7). North Campus residents will be able to park in the South Limestone Garage (PS #5), located next to Kennedy’s Wildcat Den.
All vehicles must be removed from the Sports Center Garage prior to closing at 10 p.m. All vehicles must be removed from the South Limestone Garage prior to closing at 10 p.m. May 7 and 8, and at 6 p.m. on May 9. Overnight parking without prior approval from PTS is prohibited.
Meanwhile, UK Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) reminds students and employees who are leaving campus for the summer break to take their bicycles with them. Abandoned bicycles are subject to impoundment, even if they are parked in a legal bicycle space. If a bicycle is impounded, the owner will have 90 days to claim it at PTS and pay all citation and impoundment fees. Bicycles unclaimed after 90 days will be disposed of in accordance with university regulations.
PTS identifies abandoned bicycles with tags before impounding them, and will wait a minimum of five days before removing bicycles that have been tagged. If a student or employee who is on campus during the summer months discovers a tag on their bicycle, simply removing it will notify PTS staff that the bicycle is actively being used.
