Cooper Campus Parking

Parking for BCTC students and employees is available in the Green Lot located off Cooper Drive between Kroger Field and the BCTC campus.  Valid E-BCTC and C-BCTC permits are required to park in this lot and may be purchased at UK Transportation Services, located in the Press Avenue Garage at 721 Press Avenue.  The Transportation Services office is open 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Additionally, the office will be open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, August 12.

BCTC classes begin the week prior to UK.  As a result, parking in the Red and Blue Lots will not be controlled for permits until Wednesday, August 23.  Prior to this date, BCTC students and employees may park in these parking areas if the Green Lot reaches capacity.  Beginning Wednesday, August 23, BCTC employees and students will be required to park in the designated BCTC overflow parking areas should the Green Lot reach capacity.  This parking is located off Wildcat Court in the Soccer/Softball area and is accessible by shuttle via the UK Green Route (Lextran 26).  The shuttle is viewable in real-time on TransLoc Rider, UK’s GPS-based bus locating system. TransLoc Rider can be accessed online at the Transloc website and via the free Transloc Rider Android and iPhone apps. Users should be sure to select both Lextran and the University of Kentucky under Current Transit Systems in order to include the Green Route data on the app.

Due to construction associated with UK’s new baseball stadium, the BCTC community is encouraged to avoid walking along Wildcat Court.  Those walking to the UK Green Route bus stop or walking from the overflow parking areas to the BCTC campus are encouraged to follow the recommended walking route outlined in yellow below.  Please note that no parking is permitted along Wildcat Court or within any construction zone.
