LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 26, 2022) — Due to limited parking in the High Street lots at Rupp Arena at Central Bank Center, the University of Kentucky has secured additional parking and shuttle options for graduates and their guests attending the May 2022 Commencement ceremonies on Friday, May 6, and Saturday, May 7.  

UK shuttle buses will run continuously from 7 a.m.-9 p.m. Friday and 7 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday. Shuttles will run every 15-20 minutes from Administration Drive by Parking Structure #5 (Cornerstone Garage) pedestrian bridge landing to Rupp Area. This parking structure will also be open for those interested in shuttling from campus.

In an effort to ensure all graduates and their families have an enjoyable experience, you are asked to move your vehicle from the High Street Lot immediately after your ceremony concludes to ensure the next ceremony can start on 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.
