Electrical Power Outage Scheduled for April 29

Lexington, Ky. (April 27, 2020) — An electrical power outage is scheduled for the University of Kentucky's South Limestone Garage (PS #5) from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 29. This planned outage is associated with the expansion project and will enable contractors to connect new electrical service to the structure. Gates to the garage will be up that day and while the structure should have ample natural light for parking purposes, the elevators will not be in operation during this 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.
