Family Weekend Parking

Family Weekend Parking Information

  • Most employee lots and student commuter lots are accessible and available on weekends, with the exception of lots surrounding Commonwealth Stadium and on Sports Center Drive. Permits are not required after 3:30 p.m. Friday afternoons until 5 a.m. Monday mornings in many North and Central Campus E (employee) and C (commuter) lots.
  • 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 email at UKParking@lsv.uky.edu.
