NCAA Rifle Championship to Impact North Campus Parking

LEXINGTON, KY. (March 9, 2020) — The University of Kentucky will host the National Collegiate Rifle Championship in Memorial Coliseum this weekend. UK students and employees who park on north campus should plan for parking-related impacts Wednesday, March 11, through Saturday, March 14.  

In the College View Lot (E-Intermediate), 46 spaces will be reserved during this time. UK employees will likely see the largest impact on Friday, March 13, when visitors attend the rifle competition. This could impact availability in the South Limestone Garage (PS #5). 

Impacted university employees may choose to park in any other employee intermediate or periphery lot. In the north campus area, these include:

  • King Alumni Lots North and South, located off Linden Walk
  • Linden Walk Lot
  • Schmidt Lot, with an entrance off Rose Lane
  • Stuckert Career Center Lot
  • Scott Street area lots, including Scott Street, Taylor-Dickey, Reynolds, and Comers lots
  • South Limestone Garage (PS #5) 

Employees should familiarize themselves with alternative parking options and plan their commute accordingly. Please visit this page to view all employee parking options.
