University-wide Navigation

Whether you're here to attend a conference, visit a friend or family member, or inquire about admission to the University, we hope that your visit to campus will be a pleasant one.

Before you arrive, please take a few minutes to explore your parking options. Because UK is located in an urban environment, parking spaces can sometimes be limited. Visitors do have a variety of options, though, including meters, garages, and surface lots.

Short-term visitors may enjoy the convenience of paying an hourly rate at parking meters or in garages and those who plan to be on campus for a longer period of time may opt to purchase a single day pass or a scratch-off permit, which will allow them to park all day. These passes are a cost-effective way to park for longer periods of time.

Scratch-off permits resemble scratch-off lottery tickets; users simply scratch off the day, month and year when the permit will be used. They can be purchased in multiples and used whenever one needs to visit campus. Scratch-off permits are valid in non-gated surface lots and structures. They're generally available online and at the Transportation Services' Customer Care Center, located at 721 Press Avenue.

Parking options also vary significantly by the day of week and even the time of day. Weekend parking is generally more available, as is parking after business hours on weekdays.
