Vehicle move required for blue-white spring game

LEXINGTON, Kentucky (April 6, 2022) — Kentucky Football’s annual blue-white spring game kicks off at Kroger Field at 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 9. That means some parking permit holders will have to move their vehicles to make way for an influx of Wildcat fans.

Students and employees parking in the outlying parking lots (K & EK) at Kroger Field (Red, Blue, and Orange) are asked to move their vehicles away from these areas by 7:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 9.

Additionally, permit holders parking in the Kroger Green lot (E10, C10 and R10) are asked to move their vehicle by 10 p.m. on Friday, April 8.

Vehicles can be moved to most relocation areas after 3:30 p.m. on Friday and must be returned to authorized parking areas by 5 a.m. on Monday, April 11.

On-campus parking options increase significantly after 3:30 p.m. Friday through weekends. The following land and structures will be available for vehicle relocation purposes after 3:30 p.m. Friday:

  • Intermediate batches used
  • Most Basic Employee Bundles
  • Cornerstone Garage (PS #5)
  • Garage Drive University (PS #1)
  • Garage Avenue de la Presse (PS #6)
  • Rose Street Garage (PS #2)

Please pay attention to signage at entrances to lots and structures to ensure your vehicle is not moved into a controlled area for 24/7 permits. These areas include residential lots and structures and areas marked as reserved.

Students and employees who park in the University Drive Garage (PS#1), Rose Street Garage (PS#2), and Sports Center Garage (PS#7) may also notice additional traffic at these structures during the day. of the match, but permit holders in these structures are not required to move their vehicles before the match.

Similarly, University Drive will not be restricted during the Blue and White game, as it is during regular season football games.

RV parking areas
The large Gluck Equine Center lot and part of the Orange lot will be available for British Football Recreational Vehicle (RV) parking from 8pm on the Friday before the match.

Campus bus service
The weekend yellow route will also be impacted on match day. Yellow route buses will not travel to the congested Kroger Field area and instead will turn near the university and hospital walkways and pass through all major residential areas on campus. The modified course begins two hours before the game and continues one hour after the game.

Prior notice
Parking permit holders in the Kroger Field area should also be aware that an upcoming Chris Stapleton concert, scheduled for Saturday, April 23, will require the vehicle to be moved. More details on the relocation due to the concert will be available soon.
