Student Residential Permits

Transportation Services offers a limited number of residential student parking permits. Residential permits provide on-campus student residents with the highest level of parking convenience and predictability at a higher price point than a traditional student periphery parking permit. The number of permits issued for designated residential parking areas ensures that permit holders will be able to find a parking space within their assigned lot, garage or area. Residential parking permits are ideal for students who regularly rely on their automobile for professional, personal or academic obligations, or for those who desire more convenient access to their vehicle.

Eligibility
Residential permits are restricted to students with confirmed on-campus housing assignments. Access to specific student residential parking areas may be further restricted based upon housing location (as described below). Returning students (those who had a residential permit the previous year) with a confirmed housing assignment have priority of purchase during a designated pre-sale window (see application process and calendar below). 

Pricing
2020-2021 Standard Permit Annual Price (based on academic year of eight months): $480
2020-2021 R10 Permit Annual Price (based on academic year of eight months): $320
2020-2021 R19 Permit Annual Price (based on academic year of eight months): $160
Student residential permits—with the exception of Greek Residential and University Inn (R34) permits —are only available to purchase for the entire academic year.

Most student residential parking areas are designated within the core pricing tier as a result of the convenience, desirability and reserved nature of these spaces. Students seeking less expensive student residential parking may also consider periphery parking or remote parking.

Specialty Permits (Greek, Wildcat Coal Lodge, German House & University Inn)

Greek Residential Permits

The four Greek Residential Permit types allow members of the Greek communities to park near their fraternity or sorority house, located mainly near the Columbia Avenue and Rose Lane areas. UK Transportation Services identifies the available parking spaces in this area and then allocates a pro-rated number of spaces to each house based on occupancy numbers received from UK Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL). The chapters provide to FSL the names of those who will be purchasing Greek Residential permits and FSL provides this list to Transportation Services who then provides purchasing authority to these Greek members. Greek Residential Permits are only available for purchase in the Main Office and for one semester at a time, as Chapters will occasionally change the list during the winter break.
