Lottery for employee core parking permits is now open, apply by May 1

As previously announced, a select number of employee parking areas are changing to core tier parking starting July 1. These areas will have a higher permit cost but will provide greater predictability through permit restrictions. The areas include:

  • E7: Sports Center Garage (PS7) / Complex Drive
  • E2: Rose Street Garage (PS2)
  • E28: Prall Street Lot

The lottery for employee core permits is now open. Interested employees may apply through the Transportation Services Customer Account Manager. The deadline to enter the employee core permit parking lottery is Monday, May 1, at noon.

Employees can submit their name for more than one core parking area, and may rank their choices in order of preference. The permits will be awarded through a random drawing on Tuesday, May 2.

Core permit lottery winners will be contacted by email and will have two calendar weeks to log in to the Transportation Services Customer Account Manager to reserve and purchase their permits.

Those employees not selected in the lottery will be added to a wait list in the order in which they were drawn in the lottery. This prioritized wait list will form the basis for future permit sales. Individuals on the wait list have the ability to view their wait list priority number by logging in to their customer account.

In addition to core permits, employees may opt for intermediate or periphery permits. Sales for these permits will begin on Monday, May 24. Learn more about employee parking options for 2017-2018.

Transportation Services recognizes that the transition to tiered parking is a complex and nuanced issue and is committed to ensuring the transition goes as smoothly as possible. Transportation Services officials have presented a number of information sessions across campus, including to the university and staff senates, to help educate the UK community about the new options.
