LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 8, 2021) — Beginning Monday, Dec. 13, University of Kentucky Transportation Services will offer 2022 student spring semester parking permits for sale online and on-site.

The following permits will be available: periphery (K) and off-peak (O). To learn more about parking permits in general, visit the Transportation Services website.

Online orders that are placed by noon Friday, Jan. 7, 2022, can be mailed. Orders placed after that date and time must be picked up in person at the Transportation Services’ customer service center. 

Online sales will end at noon Friday, Jan. 21, 2022, after which date all permits must be purchased in person.

The UK Transportation Services’ office is located in the Press Avenue Garage, 721 Press Ave. Regular office hours are 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. An exterior express window is available for those who prefer to pick up their permit without coming inside.

Please be aware that any outstanding parking citations must be paid before a new permit can be issued. Citations can be paid online or in person.

Eligible students who do not have a parking permit or who want to upgrade from a periphery (K) permit may submit a lottery request online for commuter (C) and residential (R) permits, provided they meet the eligibility requirements. Drawings are typically held two to three weeks after the beginning of each semester and notification is sent to lottery winners via email.

Spring semester off-peak (O) permits cost $80, while semester periphery (K) permits are $136. For details about parking areas, see the daytime student parking map and off-peak parking map.

The UK Transportation Services’ customer service center will be closed during Winter Break — Dec. 24-31 — but online sales will be available during that time.

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.
