Student Off-Peak Parking

Permit Year: 2018-2019

General Info

Transportation Services offers an off-peak parking permit for students who only require access to campus after 3:30pm. Off-peak permits provide students with convenient access to campus during periods of low parking demand at a steeply discounted rate.

Off-peak parking is ideal for students who live along a Lextran bus route or within walking or biking distance from campus, but prefer to drive to campus in the evening, or for students who are enrolled exclusively in late afternoon or evening classes.


All full and part-time UK and BCTC students are eligible to purchase student off-peak parking permits.


2018-2019 Monthly Price: $18.50
2018-2019 Annual Price (based on 8 months): $148

Student off-peak permits are available by the semester or by the academic year.

Full academic year student off-peak permits are valid August 6, 2018 through May 3, 2019.

Single semester permits are valid for the following dates:

  • 2018 fall semester: August 6, 2018 through December 31, 2018
  • 2019 spring semester: January 1, 2019 through May 3, 2019

    Students who no longer need or desire off-peak 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.
