Employee Intermediate Parking

Permit Year: 2018-2019

General Info

Intermediate permits represent the traditional first-come, first-served employee parking option with access to a variety of designated parking garages, lots and areas. This choice provides a flexible parking option at the University’s standard price point, but does not guarantee availability in any specific area.

Employee intermediate parking may be an ideal option for employees who arrive to campus early or who rarely are required to leave and return to campus during a typical work day, but still desire a parking option within walking distance of their destination. Additionally, employees who are flexible with regard to their parking location or arrival time may find that this parking option works for their lifestyle.


Employee permit eligibility is based upon employment classification. All regular full and part-time UK employees are generally eligible to apply for intermediate permits, as are STEPS temporary employees, contract employees, Shriners Hospital employees, and pre-approved VA Hospital employees.


2018-2019 Monthly Price: $37
2018-2019 Annual Price: $444

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

Employees who no longer need or desire intermediate parking during any portion of the year, may choose to return their permit and will be given a pro rata refund of any unused portion when the permit is returned to Transportation Services.
