LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 5, 2021)  Students who need to park on the University of Kentucky campus this summer can purchase a summer parking permit beginning on Monday, May 10.

The permits will be available at the UK Transportation Services customer service center, located at 721 Press Ave., or by calling 859-257-5757. They cost $10 per week and are available for any number of weeks.

UK’s parking lots and structures will be on control during the summer session from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, Monday, May 17, through Friday, Aug. 13.

Parking is generally more plentiful on campus during the summer, with additional options available for any valid UK permit. Summer permits authorize students to park in most student lots, as well as Cornerstone Garage (PS #5), the Scott Street area lots and the Sports Center area lots. Please see the summer parking map for complete details.

In addition, portions of the Rose Street Garage (PS #2) and the Sports Center Garage (PS #7) will also be open for any valid permit. Rose Street Garage levels 1-2 will be restricted to E2 and R2 core permits, but the upper levels will be open for any valid permit. Likewise, level 3 of the Sports Center Garage will be open for any valid permit.

Most employee intermediate lots will revert to any valid permit after 3:30 p.m. weekdays, with the exception of the Warren Court and Columbia Avenue West lots, which are controlled for E permits through 5 p.m.

Some lots remain on control for specific permits 24 hours a day, seven days a week. These include employee reserved (R) lots, the Nutter Center Lot, Memorial Coliseum residential areas (R17 and R18), the Football Training Center Core Lot, and Seminary area residential lots (R29 and R30).

Please note that even when lots are not controlled for permits, they are still monitored for other parking violations including, but not limited to, parking in fire lanes, parking on yellow lines, and unauthorized parking in ADA-accessible areas.

If you have questions or need more information, please call the UK Transportation Services office at 859-257-5757 or email UK Transportation Services. Regular office hours are 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

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.
