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.
