By lasu224 ยท July 6, 2020

Student residential permits will go on sale to all students with a 2020-2021 campus housing assignment beginning at noon on Tuesday, July 7. The permits will be available on a first come, first served basis.

Permits can be purchased online by logging into your customer account using your linkblue username and password. They are also available for purchase on-site at the UK Transportation Services Customer Service Center, located at 721 Press Avenue.

Permits purchased online through July 22 will be mailed to your home mailing address. After that date, they must be picked up at the Transportation Services Customer Service Center.

There is no fee increase this year for residential permits. Most student residential parking areas are designated within the core pricing tier as a result of their convenience, desirability and the reserved nature of the spaces. Core residential permits cost $480 for the academic year. R10 permits cost $320 and R19 permits cost $160 annually.

New this year, those assigned to housing on north campus will have an additional residential parking option. Construction on the Cornerstone Garage (PS #5), previously known as South Limestone Garage, will be complete prior to the start of classes and will have allocated residential spaces. These spaces will be available to students who live in the following areas: Blazer, Boyd, Holmes, Jewell, Patterson and Roselle Halls.

Please note that students who choose to purchase a residential permit are required to park within their designated area. Students seeking less expensive options may also consider periphery or remote permits. Periphery and remote permits are scheduled to go on sale on Tuesday, July 14.

2020-2021 parking permits are valid starting on August 1 and must be displayed when parking in the designated parking area. In addition, all outstanding parking citations must be paid before a permit purchase will be processed. Citations may be paid online.

Office hours for UK Transportation Services are 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. In addition, the office will have special Saturday hours from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the following dates:  August 1, 8, 15 and on Sunday, Aug. 16.
