Special Event Image

On any given day, chances are that at least one special event is taking place on the University of Kentucky's campus. Transportation Services strives to assist UK faculty, staff and student groups with parking and transportation arrangements for everything from the largest conferences and sporting-related events to smaller group meetings and seminars.

Special event services can include bus parking, meter reservations, space reservations, lot reservations with Transportation Services' staff present, visitor permits, parking structure validations, and coupon meter codes.

To help meet the parking expectations of your guests or spectators, our office depends upon the timely completion of this event parking form and the availability of parking on the requested date.

Please contact Transportation Services' special events coordinator at least 10 business days prior to your event in order to secure the best possible transportation arrangements. You may also submit this form as an inquiry for cost estimates. When scheduling your event, please have as much detailed information as possible, including the number of attendees and parking preferences.

When multiple events are scheduled on the same date, priority is given to the event that finalizes parking arrangements first. It is crucial to make parking arrangements prior to confirming dates and sending invitations.

The special events coordinator's office is located in room 129 of the Transportation Services' office, 721 Press Avenue. In person meetings with the coordinator are available Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. or you can schedule events by submitting the online form.

If you have any questions or need additional information:

Call 859-257-9680 or email Special Events Coordinator
