Service/Vendor Permits

Vendors who have business at the University of Kentucky may purchase the Service parking permit in order to accommodate access to service areas and loading zones at the University of Kentucky.

Vehicles displaying a Service (S) permit or vehicles on official business bearing United States Government or Kentucky Official license plates are permitted in service areas or loading zones. The driver of a vehicle displaying a service permit must be engaged in delivering, installing, or servicing equipment on campus. Any request for an extension of the time limit must be made through Parking and Transportation Services.

The vendor service permits follow the same pricing as employee service or E/service permits. View the fee schedule for current rates.
