Vehicle Relocation Required on Home Football Game Days

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 8, 2017) — With the kickoff of the home football season slated for this weekend, University of Kentucky Transportation Services would like to remind the UK community about parking policies on game days.

  • Students and employees who park in the Kroger Field parking lots (Red, Blue, Orange, Greg Page Overflow Lot and the Soccer/Softball Complex Lots), in the Sports Center Garage (PS #7) or in the Sports Center Lots must move their vehicles before 7 a.m. on the days of home football games. R7 permit holders parked on Complex Drive do not need to move their vehicles.
  • Students and employees who park in the Kroger Field Green Lot must relocate prior to 10 p.m. the night before home football games.
  • No parking is permitted on University Drive on game days.
  • All vehicles parking in motorcycle/motor scooter spaces or parked at meters in any of the above areas must also relocate their vehicle, according to the listed timeline above.

Students who park in the Rose Street Garage (R2) are not required to move their vehicles on home football game days. However, this facility is used to accommodate students who are required to relocate their vehicles, as well as for game day staff and fans. Should an R2 permit holder return to the Rose Street Garage on game day and not be able to find a parking space, they may park in any other designated parking relocation lots.

Failure to move any vehicle from the stadium parking lots, the Sports Center Garage, the Sports Center Lots or University Drive may result in a citation or impoundment at the owner’s expense.

Vehicles may be moved any time after 3:30 p.m. on Friday, and must be moved back by 5 a.m. Monday.
