Move-In 2014 to Impact Campus Traffic, Some Parking

Published: Aug 15, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 15, 2014) — Move-In is an exciting time for the Univesity of Kentucky campus community and an important time to begin fostering student success — a top priority at all levels at the university.

 

This year, UK will welcome students and their families during four major Move-In days over the next week:

·         Saturday, Aug. 16

·         Wednesday, Aug. 20

·         Friday, Aug. 22

·         Saturday, Aug. 23

 

Move-In — combined with current construction occurring on campus — will impact parking, transit, and transportation routes throughout the campus at various times. Among the more than 6,000 students moving to campus housing, about 1,100 students are expected to arrive on both Saturdays, Aug. 16 and 23; 1,700 are expected on Wednesday, Aug. 20; and another 2,200 on Friday, Aug. 22.

 

Safety is always a priority at UK and especially now when thousands of new students are transitioning to campus at a time when vehicle and pedestrian traffic are heavy and streets are re-routed. UK Police will be out in full force to assist with Move-In, and everyone is urged to be patient and travel safely.

 

Below is information regarding student move-in traffic flow and parking and bus schedule impacts over the next week, including important information about one-way streets, no parking areas, alternate bus routes and high traffic locations.

  • One-way eastbound:  Hilltop Ave. between University Dr. and Woodland Ave.

NO PARKING AREAS:

Due to the need to quickly unload vehicles near residence halls, several areas of campus will be NO PARKING zones from 12:01 a.m. to 6 p.m. on each of the Move-In days. Additionally, several streets on and bordering campus will have closures or other changes to traffic flow to accommodate Move-In. Watch for NO PARKING signs and bagged meters in these areas.
