Summer Parking Control

Parking & Transportation Services will control all student lots for permits during the summer months. These lots will be controlled for any valid UK permit. Summer permits will be available for students at a rate of $9 per week. Permits will go on sale Monday, May 2, and may only be purchased in person at Parking and Transportation Services, 721 Press Avenue (Press Avenue Garage). The permits may be issued for any number of weeks between May 9 and August 12, 2016.

View the Summer Parking Map to see where to park with your summer parking permit.

Parking for special events should be arranged with the PTS Special Event Coordinator at (859) 257-9680. Event organizers are asked to make arrangements at least two weeks in advance in order to secure the most convenient arrangements for their attendees; event parking will be determined on a first-come, first-serve basis. Requests for event parking may be made online.

All Employee (E) lots will remain on control as normal. All student lots will require any valid permit, which may include employee or summer permits.

Please note that even when lots are not controlled for permits, they are still monitored for other parking violations to include, but not limited to, parking in fire lanes, parking on yellow lines, and unauthorized parking in ADA accessible areas.
