UK Women’s Basketball Game/Education Day to Impact Parking Dec. 4

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 3, 2019)  The University of Kentucky women’s basketball team will hold its Winning Tools Education Day and face the University of North Carolina at Charlotte 49ers Wednesday, Dec. 4, in Memorial Coliseum. Tip-off for the game begins at noon. Students in area elementary and secondary schools are expected to attend, which will impact parking on north campus.

To accommodate fans and school buses, the Linden Walk Lot (E-Intermediate) will be reserved from 5 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday. In addition, gates at the South Limestone Garage (PS #5) will be open to the public beginning at 9 a.m. 

Affected employees should consider other parking alternatives, including the Sturgill and Schmidt lots, with entrances off Rose Lane, and the Career Center Lot and the King Alumni North and South lots, with entrances off Linden Walk. Employees who arrive on campus after 9 a.m. and typically park in the South Limestone Garage can also consider the Scott Street area lots.  

As the state’s flagship, land-grant institution, the University of Kentucky exists to advance the Commonwealth. We do that by preparing the next generation of leaders — placing students at the heart of everything we do — and transforming the lives of Kentuckians through education, research and creative work, service and health care. We pride ourselves on being a catalyst for breakthroughs and a force for healing, a place where ingenuity unfolds. It's all made possible by our people — visionaries, disruptors and pioneers — who make up 200 academic programs, a $476.5 million research and development enterprise and a world-class medical center, all on one campus.   

In 2022, UK was ranked by Forbes as one of the “Best Employers for New Grads” and named a “Diversity Champion” by INSIGHT into Diversity, a testament to our commitment to advance Kentucky and create a community of belonging for everyone. While our mission looks different in many ways than it did in 1865, the vision of service to our Commonwealth and the world remains the same. We are the University for Kentucky.
