Parking and Campus Shuttles

A beautifully illustrated map and a parking map of campus are both available for pdf download. Please feel free to come by Student Affairs in 225L Treece Hall in Centro to pick up a printed copy of either of these. 

Below are some resources to help you navigate transportation in and around campus. Please remember that if you are walking on campus late at night you can always call the Office of Public Safety at 502.272.7777 for a security escort service. 


As a commuter student you will want to make sure you are aware of the following in regards to parking (for additional information please consult the Campus Parking and Traffic Regulations):

  • All University personnel and students must register any vehicle parked on campus and obtain a parking permit decal. All vehicle registrations and parking permit decals expire July 31 of each year. 
  • On motorcycles and motorbikes place the decal where it is visible on the rear of the motorcycle/motorbike.
  • The parking permit fee for students is included in the comprehensive fee. If you drive more than one vehicle to school, additional permits can be obtained at no additional charge. The vehicle must be owned by the registrant or a member of their immediate family.
  • Parking permit decals for students will be issued by the Office of Public Safety, room CC 055 Horrigan Hall, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
