Women’s Basketball Game to Impact Campus Wednesday
On Wednesday, Nov. 28, the UK women’s basketball team will host Miami (OH) at 11 a.m. in Memorial Coliseum. As a result, North Campus will have an influx of visitors parking on campus.
To accommodate game day operations, 20 regular E spaces and 10 metered spaces will be reserved in the Craft Center Employee Lot.
UK women’s basketball fans may choose to pay to park in Parking Structure #5, located on South Limestone next to Kennedy Book Store. Employees and students who normally park in this structure should be aware of this potential impact, and allow plenty of time to arrive on campus.
A portion of University Drive will also be blocked until 10 a.m. on Wednesday to accommodate buses unloading for area students touring campus and attending the basketball game.
Members of the University community who normally park their vehicles in these areas may need to utilize other parking in the respective areas. Go to www.uky.edu/pts/parking-info_parking-maps to view a campus parking map.
