Semester Break Parking

Parking enforcement changes in some lots and structures over the summer months and during academic breaks. However, even when lots are not controlled for permits, they are still monitored for other parking violations, such as parking in fire lanes, parking on yellow lines, and unauthorized parking in ADA accessible areas.

Please take a moment to review the following information regarding parking on campus during academic breaks and over the summer.

Summer Parking Control

Transportation Services enforces for permits in all student lots during the summer months; these lots are controlled for any valid UK permit (excluding R2, R7, R17, R18, R29 and R30). If you would like to park on campus during the summer, you may purchase a summer permit. These permits cost $9 per week and may be issued for any number of weeks between May 6 and August 9, 2019. Summer permits may only be purchased in person at Transportation Services, located in the Press Avenue Garage, 721 Press Avenue.

All employee (E) lots remain on normal control throughout the summer.

Special Event Parking During Breaks

If you have a special event on campus during the academic breaks over over the summer months, please contact Transportation Services' Special Events Coordinator to arrange details. Event organizers should make arrangements at least two weeks in advance in order to secure the most convenient parking for their attendees. Event parking is determined on a first-come, first-served basis. Visit our special events parking page for complete details.
