    Chestnut Street Garage parking changes

    Beginning May 7, the parking areas in the Chestnut St. parking garage will be reconfigured. People having a magenta parking permit will now be parking on the eastern portion of the fourth level, on the ramp to the fifth level and on the fifth level. People with red reserved spaces will be relocated off the up and down ramps to the eastern portion of the third floor. Reserved space holders will receive an additional email detailing the exact location of their new parking space. These changes are because of the increased need for our patients who will be seen in both the UofL Physicians Outpatient Center and the Novak Center for Children’s Health, which is scheduled to open in June.

    Belknap parking changes prompted by construction

    Parking and Transportation recently announced a number of changes for Fall semester. These changes were prompted by the planned construction of a new residence hall at the corner of Fourth and Cardinal that will displace 328 resident and 132 visitor parking spaces. This project will begin in the middle of the semester so immediate action was needed to inform permit selection. Planning focused on leveraging underutilized areas to ensure adequate resident and visitor parking without excessively inconveniencing  other permit holders. A secondary focus was to avoid increasing the number of permit types sharing the same area to reduce tickets and towing. For more information see louisville.edu/parking.
