Thousands of students, employees, and visitors travel daily to the University of Kentucky's campus, many of whom arrive by personal vehicle. Because parking on campus requires either a UK parking permit or the utilization of short-term parking options, it's helpful to browse our site before you visit to learn pertinent information about your options and parking locations.

In general, UK Transportation Services allocates parking areas based on the following classifications: visitorsemployees, and students, as well as UK HealthCare patients and patient visitors. Please visit those pages to learn where you can park and to discover which options are best for your situation.

Review our parking maps to get the lay of the land, and if you want to dig deeper, review our campus parking regulations.

Parking demand varies significantly based on the time of day and even the time of year. It's generally much easier to park on campus during the evening, in the summer, or during academic breaks.

Some of our parking lots and structures on campus are also quite large. If you have trouble remembering where you left your vehicle, review these useful tips.
