Employee Reserved Parking

Permit Year: 2018-2019

General Info

The University maintains a limited number of reserved parking areas on campus with the majority of spaces located on the UK HealthCare campus and small number on main campus. Reserved permits are not available for purchase by the general campus community. Permit allocations are assigned to the various campus sectors with purchase authorization determined by the President, Provost, appropriate executive vice president or designee.

Reserved permits provide the highest level of convenience and predictability at a higher price point than employee intermediate and employee core parking permits. Transportation Services manages the number of permits issued for designated reserved parking areas to ensure that reserved permit holders will be able to find parking within their assigned lot, garage or area.


Employee permit eligibility is based upon employment classification. However, specific purchase authorization is required by the President, Provost, appropriate executive vice president or their designee.


2018-2019 Monthly Price: $111
2018-2019 Annual Price: $1,332

Permits are valid July 1 through June 30 of the following year. Reserved parking is available on payroll deduction for most University of Kentucky employees. Reserved permits are only sold on a 12-month basis.

Parking Privileges and Control Hours

Employee reserved permits are issued for a specific parking garage, lot or area. Reserved permit holders may only park in their assigned reserved parking area and are not eligible to park in any other core or reserved parking area unless otherwise authorized.

Employee reserved permits authorize the permit holder to “park down” in any employee intermediate or periphery parking area, in addition to their designated reserved area.

In general, most employee reserved parking areas are controlled for permits under the following control schedule:

UK HealthCare Reserved permit control hours:

  • 24 hours / 7 days per week

    UK Main Campus Reserved permit control hours

  • Mon-Fri: 5 a.m. - 7:30 p.m.

    Note: Signage at the entry to parking areas and any additional control signage, curb markings and other parking control devices within these areas take precedence over maps and general campus information.
