remote -X

Transportation Services offers a steeply discounted remote parking option which takes advantage of excess parking availability in the south campus Greg Page and Shawneetown graduate and family housing areas.

In addition to accommodating parking needs for residents of south campus graduate and family housing areas, remote (X) parking may be an ideal option for other on-campus residents who infrequently use their vehicles or who are seeking a less expensive parking alternative.

Remote parking is served by the Green Route, which provides access to campus via a bus transfer to the Blue and White routes at the Stadium Blue Lot bus shelter. The Green Route runs Monday through Friday.


Remote (X) permits are generally restricted to students with confirmed on-campus housing assignments. Students with confirmed housing assignments in Greg Page and Shawneetown are eligible to purchase a residential (R19) permit. Students with confirmed housing assignments in all other campus housing areas are eligible to purchase a remote (X) permit.

The University has limited parking resources and is not able to provide overnight parking for off-campus students in private housing and apartments in our core, intermediate and periphery parking areas. However, our department has allocated a limited number of parking spaces in the remote parking area to accommodate off-campus students. Off-campus students who show a demonstrated need to park on campus overnight are eligible to purchase a remote (X) permit. Call 859-257-5757 for more information or email


2024-2025 annual price (based on academic year eight months): $168

Student remote (X) permits are only available to purchase for the entire academic year. Students who no longer need or desire remote parking during any portion of the year may choose to return their permit to Transportation Services and will be given a prorated refund of any unused portion.

Parking Locations

Remote (X) permits authorize permit holders to park in the Greg Page and Shawneetown parking areas, specifically excluding the Commonwealth Drive Lot, located off Alumni Drive just north of the entry to Greg Page on Commonwealth Drive. Remote permit holders are also excluded from parking in the signed R19 spaces located in front of buildings A and C in the Shawneetown parking area.

Parking Privileges and Control Hours

In addition to authorizing parking in designated remote parking areas, a remote permit also authorizes the permit holder to park in most employee intermediate parking areas after 3:30 p.m. and in most employee core areas after 5 p.m. Signage at the entry to parking areas and any additional control signage, curb markings and other parking control devices within these areas take precedence over maps and general campus information.

Student remote parking areas are controlled for permits 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
