Student and Employee Parking on Football Game Days

With the kickoff of the home football season slated for this Saturday, September 10, Parking & Transportation Services (PTS) would like to remind the UK community about parking policies on game days.

Students and employees who park at Commonwealth Stadium must move their vehicles before 9:00 a.m. on the days of home football games. Additionally, no parking is permitted on University Drive after 7:00 a.m. on game days. Failure to move any vehicle from the Stadium parking lots or University Drive will result in a citation and/or impoundment at the owner’s expense. This includes the K lots, the E parking in the Red and Blue lots, the C6 lot, the Soccer/Softball Complex and the K/E lot next to Greg Page Apartments. In addition to the E spaces on University Drive, parking is prohibited in the motorcycle and metered spaces along the street after 7:00 a.m. on game days.

Vehicles may be moved to any E lot on campus, with the exception of the E/C2 lot, the E lot behind the Gluck Building, the 24-hour E lot behind the Nutter Practice Facility (including the 24-hour E spaces by Ingels Hall), the 24-hour E lot behind the W. T. Young Library or Parking Structure #7. Vehicles may not be moved to R lots; those areas are controlled for permit parking only 24 hours a day. Vehicles may be moved anytime after 3:30 p.m. on Friday, and must be moved back by 5:00 a.m. Monday.

Football Parking Reminders for Fans

Parking Structure #7 will be available for football parking. UK parking permits are not valid in this parking structure on days of home football games. Located on Sports Center Drive approximately three blocks from Commonwealth Stadium, the structure will be open for football parking four hours before kickoff. The cost is $20 per vehicle per game. PTS also offers several other parking facilities free of charge.
