University "One Stop Shop" — Gatton Student Center

One of the vital components of our mission at the University of Kentucky is to play a leadership role in human well-being and economic development. To this end, we have developed a temporary “One-Stop Shop” in order to maintain high-quality service to our students and employees during this time of distance learning, remote working, and social distancing. This service will be housed in the Gatton Student Center and comprised of a variety of university departments that require in-person interface with students and/or employees in order to maintain effective function. The associated offices are listed below, but as our situation associated with COVID-19 response continues to evolve, the services provided within this area will likely evolve as well.

When utilizing transportation services, please consider the following passenger recommendations:

  • Park and stride – skip the bus and walk from periphery parking areas, reducing the number of riders on the buses. This allows for more space between passengers who may need or choose to ride.
  • Leave an empty space between passengers – we are limiting occupancy on buses to half the total seating capacity, allowing for an empty seat between passengers. When waiting to board, please allow extra space between individuals.
  • Practice social distancing at bus stops – the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention recommends a distance of six (6) feet from others, when possible.
  • Limit coughing & sneezing exposure – while coughing and sneezing are not definitive signs of a communicable disease, please be respectful of your fellow passengers and avoid when possible. If not possible, please ensure you limit the spread of airborne particles by coughing or sneezing into your sleeve or a tissue.
