General Questions


I park my car at Papa John's Stadium. Is it true I can't park in Purple lots during weekday football games?

Students and employees who park at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium must move their vehicles before 7:30am on the days of home football games. Failure to move any vehicle from the Stadium parking lots could result in a citation and/or impoundment at the owner’s expense. Alternate parking for students and employees will be made available at near or in the KFEC (Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center). Access to KEC will be granted at no charge as long as the University member has a valid UofL parking permit with them.  Additional instructions will be emailed to permit holders before the game and posted on the University Parking website and facebook page. Overnight parking is NEVER available at PJCS.

I need to run into a campus building. I was told by [my friend, RA, hall director, some stranger on the street] I could leave my hazard lights on to avoid a parking ticket. Is that true?

No, Parking Services does not condone this activity as short-term legal parking. If your vehicle is illegally parked, no matter the duration, you may receive a parking citation. This applies to all spaces on campus: regular spaces, disabled spaces, services areas, etc. In addition to visitor pay parking in the Floyd Street Garage and at 4th and Cardinal Blvd, parking meters are available throughout campus and on city streets to accommodate short-term parking.

I have a state-issued handicap permit. May I use it to park on campus?

Any state-issued handicap permit may park only in visitor areas. A UofL Handicap parking permit is required for all UofL accessible parking spaces. Accessible permit applications are available on the University Parking website and in the parking offices.  All applications will be forwarded to the provided doctor for approval. UofL Handicap permits are valid only on UofL's campuses.

Are visitor permits available for parking on UofL campus?

Visitor permits may be purchased for $5 per day in the parking office or printed on the University Parking website.

At what times can I cross park with a purple permit?

Purple permits may park in Blue spaces after 4:15pm and in non-24 hour Red spaces after 5pm.  All permits may also cross park in the HSC visitor spaces after 4:15pm and the non-accessible Information Center spaces after 5pm.

Where are pay lots located on campus?
