Spring Semester K, Evening Permits Sold Online

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 10, 2009) – Beginning Monday, Dec. 14, University of Kentucky Parking & Transportation Services (PTS) will offer student spring semester-only permits for sale on their Web site, www.uky.edu/Parking.

UK and BCTC students seeking K and evening permits for the 2010 spring semester must apply online through the Parking Account Manager. UK students must use their link blue login and password in order to apply for a permit online. Link blue is the account name and password formerly known as U-Connect. These single sign-in credentials provide access to UK's e-mail, Blackboard, wireless, and other services. BCTC students must use their KCTCS username and password.

The Parking Account Manager allows users to manage some of their own information, such as adding a new vehicle license plate to their account, as well as purchasing a permit once logged into the system - all in real time.

The K lots at Commonwealth Stadium will not be controlled for permits from Saturday, Dec. 19 through Tuesday, Jan. 19; this will allow new students time to purchase permits once they arrive on campus for the spring semester that starts Jan. 11.. The lots will be controlled for permits beginning Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2010.

The cut-off date for online application is Friday, Jan. 29, 2010. Beginning Feb. 1, 2010, students may come to Parking and Transportation Services, located in Parking Structure #6 (721 Press Avenue), to purchase permits over the counter.

Eligible students who do not have a parking permit or who want to upgrade a K permit may submit a lottery request online for C and R permits through the Parking Account Manager. Eligibility criteria must be met to purchase the desired permit. Drawings are typically held two to three weeks after the beginning of the semester and notification is sent via e-mail.

New students are encouraged to visit the New Student Parking Information page for maps, frequently asked questions, and more.
