Don’t let parking at UK intimidate you! Parking for the Aug. 7 event is at Parking Structure #5, just south/attached to the former Kennedy’s Bookstore on Limestone. You may enter from South Limestone or South Upper Street. Park in any unrestricted spot. If you have an ADA accessible permit you may park in the ADA designated spots, since this is a Visitor’s Parking Garage. (Other locations on campus require a UK ADA permit).
You will receive a parking ticket when you pull into the garage – keep this ticket, just in case. At the event, look for OLLI Staff and Volunteers, we will all be wearing our OLLI Lanyards. OLLI Staff & Volunteers will give you a special parking pass at the event registration table. Insert the special pass received from OLLI, it will open the gate, allowing you to exit from the garage without payment.
