University Drive Garage Work to Impact Parking Availability

The work will be completed in phases, leaving approximately 50% of the structure available for parking at any one time.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 20, 2022) — University Drive Garage (PS #1) is scheduled to be resealed and restriped starting as early as Monday, May 23. This work will impact parking availability in the structure through early August.

The work will be completed in phases, leaving approximately 50% of the structure available for parking at any one time. Employees who typically park in University Drive Garage may consider other nearby options, such as the Kroger Field Red, Blue and Orange lots.

Parking is also available over the summer on the upper levels of Rose Street Garage (PS #2) and the Sports Center Garage (PS #7) to individuals with any valid UK permit. Rose Street Garage levels one-two are restricted to E2 and R2 core permits, but the upper levels are open for any valid permit. Likewise, levels two and three of the Sports Center Garage are available for any valid permit.

Individuals who choose to park in the Kroger Field area lots can take advantage of the campus BlueWhite and Orange bus routes for transportation to UK HealthCare destinations and throughout campus.

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.
