Summer Parking Control Begins May 7

During the summer months, Parking & Transportation Services (PTS) will control most University parking lots for permits, including all employee and commuter lots and most student lots. Beginning Monday, May 7, these lots will be controlled for any valid UK permit. Summer permits for students are currently available at a cost of $7 per week. Permits may only be purchased in person at Parking & Transportation Services, 721 Press Avenue (Parking Structure #6). The permits may be issued for any number of weeks between May 7 and August 2, 2012.

Please note that even though some lots are not controlled for permits, they are still monitored for other parking violations such as parking in fire lanes, on yellow lines, and in disabled reserved parking. Additionally, all parking meters remain on control during the summer.

Most lots will resume normal control on August 20. Visit the Summer Parking page for more information on summer parking policies, hours of operation and a list of lots not controlled for permits.

Finally, as the semester winds down, students are reminded that all 2011-2012 student permits expire on Friday, May 4.
