Bicycles Must Be Parked at Campus Bike Racks


LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 12, 2016) — University of Kentucky students and employees are choosing bicycles as a means of getting to, from and around campus, in growing numbers. UK Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) would like to remind cyclists that bicycles may only be parked at bicycle racks, located at all residence halls, classroom buildings and throughout campus.

Bicycles may not be parked at any area other than a bike rack. Securing bikes to areas such as handrails or doors could block building access and egress, creating a hazard and nuisance. Parking bicycles along disabled ramps is prohibited. Likewise, bicycles may not be locked to benches, poles, signs or trees.

Over the past few months, more than 700 bicycle parking spaces were added or upgraded. Students and employees who notice a need for more bike parking in a particular area of campus may submit a request via

Here is a complete map of campus-area bicycle lanes and facilities (PDF), including rack locations.
