Family Weekend Parking

Family Weekend Parking Information

Most employee lots and student commuter lots are accessible and available on weekends. Permits are not required after 3:30 p.m. Friday afternoons until 5 a.m. Monday mornings.

  • Signs are posted at the entrance of each lot to make you aware of parking regulations and any permit requirements.
  • Do not park in R (residential) lots.
  • Spaces for visitors with disabilities are located throughout campus in close proximity to entrances of University buildings. These spaces, however, typically require a disabled permit issued by Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) or a gate attendant. During Family Weekend only, PTS will allow use of state-issued disabled permits. If you need assistance with locating accessible parking, please contact PTS at (859) 257-5757 or toll-free at (800) 441-0555. You can contact them via e-mail at UKParking@lsv.uky.edu.
