2018 Season Permit Renewals

Season ticket renewals will include the same parking pass(es) issued for the 2017 season. There will be no overall reallocation of parking for the 2018 season. The cost of 2018 season parking permits are as follows:

  • Parking Lots: $280
  • Parking Structures: $168
  • RV Permits: $700

Certain parking lots require a per-permit donation to the K Fund. K Fund per-permit donations help provide the funding necessary to ensure our student-athletes have the opportunity to earn a first-class education and compete at the highest level. A parking chart with K Fund donation levels can be found below. Fans that would like to request a parking upgrade, should note the change as part of their online renewal invoice, on their paper renewal or by contacting the K Fund at (859) 257-6300 no later than April 6, 2018. Beginning in May, requests for parking changes will be filled in order of K Fund priority point rank.

New Season Permits

A very limited number of standard parking permits are also available in select lots and garages, ranging from $168 to $380. Please contact the K Fund at (859) 257-6300 to purchase a season parking permit. If you wish to add your season ticket account to the parking permit waiting list, please email the K Fund. The parking pass waiting list is ranked in order of K Fund priority points. Alternatively, plenty of single-game parking and shuttle options exist.


Numbered Reserved Permits

Numbered reserved parking spaces are currently available in the Green and Red parking lots. These permit holders will have a specific, numbered parking space reserved for each game. Numbered Reserved parking spaces require a $3,000 K Fund donation in addition to the cost of the season parking permit. To purchase a Numbered Reserved permit, contact the K Fund at (859) 257-6300.


VIP Permits

Blue and Red VIP permits offer a guaranteed space within the VIP section of the associated lot, regardless of your arrival time. Spaces in these lots are not individually numbered. Blue and Red VIP permits require a $2,500 K Fund donation in addition to the cost of the season parking permit. To purchase a Blue or Red VIP permit, contact the K Fund at (859) 257-6300.


Reserved Disabled Permits

To renew a disabled parking permit, permit holders must provide a copy of their state issued disabled parking placard and/or copy of your registration receipt for disabled parking issued by your county clerk’s office or transportation cabinet. If you are a current permit holder and no longer require disabled parking for home football games, or do not have the proper documentation to provide, please notify the K Fund. Blue and Red Reserved Disabled permits are sold out for the 2017 season. To be added to the parking waiting list, please email the K Fund.

Non-Reserved Disabled Parking

Non-reserved disabled parking is available at the corner of University Drive and Farm Road. The lot has the capacity for 120 vehicles ($30 per vehicle) and spaces will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once the non-reserved disabled lot is full, guests will be directed to park in Parking Structures 2 or 6. An accessible shuttle is provided between the lot and the stadium and begins two hours prior to kickoff. Pick-up is located in the non-reserved disabled lot with the drop off point at Gate 9. Return shuttles begin at the end of the 3rd quarter and continue until 30 minutes postgame. A golf cart shuttle is available from Gate 9 to any other gate outside of Kroger Field.


Non-Reserved RV Parking

RV’s without permits may park in the non-reserved RV lot located on Virginia Avenue between South Limestone and Press Avenue, based on availability. The Virginia Avenue RV Lot is the primary non-reserved RV lot that accommodates approximately 30 RV’s and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. The non-reserved lot opens the Friday prior to game day at 6 PM. Please note, there are no hookups in this lot. This lot is free of charge and offers a shuttle that picks up on Nicholasville Road (in front of the Kentucky Clinic) and drops off at Kroger Field.


Permit Rules & Regulations

  • Parking permits are classified as a ticket and are subject to UK Athletics Scalping Policy. Any scalping above face value, duplication or misuse of a permit may result in loss of parking privileges.
  • Lots are reserved up to one hour before kickoff. During the one-hour period to kickoff, lots will be filled according to availability. If your designated lot is full upon arrival, you will be directed to the next available lot. *Unless you have purchased a VIP or Reserved spot.
  • Display your parking hang-tag at all times. Detach your parking ticket stub at the bottom of the hang-tag and present to the parking attendants as you enter the lot. Everyone must present a ticket to enter.
  • Lots are reserved, spaces are not. One pass allows access for access for one vehicle to one space. Spaces are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. *Unless you have purchased a VIP or Reserved spot.

  • If you bring a trailer into one of the paved lots you must have a permit for your vehicle and an additional permit for each parking space you occupy. For example, if you have an SUV with a trailer in the Blue Lot you must have 2 permits (one for the vehicle and one for the trailer).
  • RVs, or any other vehicle larger than a standard size parking space, must have an RV pass to park in the RV Lot. RVs, or any other vehicle larger than a standard size parking space are not permitted to park in non-RV lots.
