You would not believe how much people enjoy complaining about parking at Kentucky! It gets more gripes than any other area of college life, and rightly so. The parking authority is notorious for overselling parking passes. If you are lucky enough to find a space, you will pay over $100 per year to park somewhere miles away from anything.
Plan on packing a sleeping bag if you have a pass to park at the football stadium; chances are you'll end up getting tired and spending the night. The only redeeming factor is the shabby bus system that takes students around campus, but never really drops them off anywhere that helps much.
