Student Permit Lottery

Occasionally, parking spaces become available in lots and garages throughout the year. UK Transportation Services maintains a real-time permit lottery or waitlist for UK students and employees who wish to park in specific areas. To request to be added to the waitlist, simply log into the Customer Account Manager, which will allow you to add or edit a lottery request. Only the permits for which you are eligible will show in the selection list, and you may have only one active waitlist request at a time.

Random drawings are held throughout the year for any spaces which become available, and award notification will be sent via email to the person whose name is chosen.
