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.

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.
