NCAA Women’s Basketball Tourney to Impact Some North Campus Parking
For the first time in program history, the University of Kentucky has been selected to host the first and second rounds of the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championships in Memorial Coliseum; games will be held on Saturday, March 22 at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. and on Monday, March 24 at 6:30 p.m.
Although no games will take place during traditional working hours, North Campus parking will be impacted beginning on Friday, March 21, due to lot closures associated with tournament operations.
The College View Lot, adjacent to Wildcat Coal Lodge, will be reserved for tournament operations parking only from Friday, March 21, through Monday, March 24; the lot has 75 spaces. Additionally, 20 spaces in the Coliseum Lot, located behind the Joe Craft Center, will be unavailable from Friday, March 21, through Monday, March 24 to accommodate satellite trucks for media outlets covering the tournament games.
The Linden Walk Lot will also be unavailable to general parking on Friday, March 21, for tournament operations. The lot consists of 63 spaces.
Members of the University community with valid E permits who normally park their vehicles in these lot may park in other E lots on campus. Go to www.uky.edu/pts/parking-info_parking-maps to view a campus parking map.
Members of the campus community are encouraged to tune into 1700 AM (WQKH 253) to hear campus parking and transportation information. The station broadcasts 24 hours, 7 days a week.
