UK Parking Permit Enforcement

By lasu224 ยท July 30, 2020

Beginning Monday, August 3, through Sunday, August 16, parking permits will not be required to park in the Kroger Field Red and Blue student periphery (K) lots and the remote (X and R19) parking areas located at Greg Page and Shawneetown Apartments. This accommodation will provide time for students to purchase parking permits prior to the start of the fall semester.
As a result, students, parents and other visitors will be able to park in these lots without displaying a valid UK parking permit during this period. Beginning on the first day of classes -- Monday, August 17 -- all University lots return to normal permit control and all vehicles must be parked in their assigned areas and properly display the appropriate valid UK parking permit.
Please note, the Green Lot, located off College Way between Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC) and Kroger Field, will be restricted to E10, C10 and R10 permit holders beginning Monday, Aug. 17.
Some campus residential lots require a valid permit year-round, including:
R17:  College View residential parking area located near the Wildcat Coal Lodge off College View Ave.
R18:  German House residential area located on the north side of the Memorial Coliseum Lot
R29:  Seminary apartment residential parking lot located to the west of Mandrell Hall
R30:  Seminary townhome residential parking lot located to the southwest of Mandrell Hall
Please also note that the pay by the hour visitor lot at the Gatton Student Center will be enforced 24 hours a day, similar to the visitor lot at the William T. Young Library.
In addition, the Rose Street Garage (PS #2) and the Sports Center Garage (PS #7) will return to regular permit control beginning on Monday, August 3. Only individuals with E2 and R2 permits will be eligible to park in the Rose Street Garage, and individuals with E7 and R7 permits will be able to park in the Sports Center Garage. The Sports Center Garage will also reopen to visitor parking on Monday, August 3.
To assist students, faculty and employees in getting their required parking permits, Transportation Services is open weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and will have extended Saturday hours from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the following dates:  August 1, 8 and 15. The customer service center will also be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, August 16.
It will also have extended hours prior to the first week of classes. The office will be open from 7:30. a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday, August 10, through Friday, August 14.
