Full and part-time students who plan to park their vehicle on the University of Kentucky's campus must have a valid parking permit and park in designated areas. This requirement also extends to students who attend classes at the Bluegrass Community Technical College System (BCTC) and park near the BCTC campus location.
Please note that parking meters on campus are intended for short-term use and must be paid; a valid UK parking permit does not authorize the holder to park at meters without paying.
During sale dates, permits can be purchased online by logging into your customer account, on-site at our customer service center or over the phone by calling 859-257-5757.
