Football Parking Impact on Friday at Gluck Lot and Orange Lot Expansion

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 3, 2015) — Permit-controlled recreational vehicle (RV) parking for UK Football is being accommodated this year in the new Orange Lot expansion and in the Gluck Equine Center Lot. However, the impact on employee parking is expected to be minimal. 

RV permit holders have been assigned specific spaces within these two lots and, based upon location, have been given specific “no earlier than” arrival times.  All RVs assigned to the Gluck Equine Center Lot and a portion of those assigned to the Orange Lot expansion are not authorized to arrive earlier than 8 p.m. on Fridays before home football games, meaning that there should be little to no impact on typical Friday parking.  The remaining RVs assigned to the Orange Lot expansion are authorized to arrive Friday morning and could reduce parking availability on the Fridays before game day by up to 356 spaces.  Given the reduced campus parking demand typically associated with Fridays, this reduction is also anticipated to have little or no impact on employee parking availability.

To facilitate the RV permit holders with early arrival times, the Orange Lot expansion will be closed to parking late on Thursday evening or early Friday morning.  Those employees who park in the Orange Lot will be asked to park in the original portion of the Orange Lot.  In the unlikely event that the original portion of the Orange Lot fills, employees will be authorized to park in the Orange Lot expansion area and will be directed to use the 158 spaces allocated to RVs with arrival times after 8 p.m. 

Employees who park in the Gluck Equine Center Lot and the Orange Lot expansion are required to move their vehicles before 8 p.m. on the Friday before a home football game.  Please note that RV accommodations for the Thursday football game on Oct. 15 will be different than for a typical Saturday game day.  No RVs will be authorized to arrive before 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 14, prior to the Thursday football game.
