Additional Gameday Information

LEXINGTON, Ky. - The Kentucky women's basketball team opens year four of the Matthew Mitchell era and its 37th season of varsity women's basketball when it plays host to intrastate rival Morehead State Friday, Nov. 12 in Memorial Coliseum. Tip-off is scheduled for an unusual 11 a.m. EST start as it will mark the nation's first Division I women's basketball game of the 2010-11 season. Because UK classes are in session, here’s some pertinent parking information you’ll need to know:

Please do not park in designated University lots as vehicles will be subject to ticket/tow.

Fans are encouraged to park in Parking Structure 5 located next to Kennedy's Bookstore on Limestone Avenue. Parking within Parking Structure 5 will be available free of charge. When you enter the structure, you will receive a white voucher. Upon arrival at Memorial Coliseum, please exchange your white voucher with a pink payment voucher with any UK Event Staff working the entrances to Memorial Coliseum or at the Guest Services desk, located inside the Lexington Avenue Lobby. Insert the pink payment voucher to exit Parking Structure #5.

There also will be a shuttle from Parking Structure #5 to Memorial Coliseum, which will begin at 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. To access the shuttle, walk across/above Limestone, via the skybridge (accessible on Floor 3 of the parking structure). Shuttle picks up at the end of the sidewalk on Administration Drive.
