Visit the parking website to learn more about parking and transportation options at UofL. Here your student can purchase their permit online if they desire. Your student must set up an account and enter his/her UofL username and password.

If you have questions, please contact the UofL Parking Office at (502) 852-7275. As you can imagine, lines can form with so many students so try to visit the Parking Office as early in the day as possible.
