Tax Cuts and Jobs Act -- For Faculty/Staff

Effective July 1, 2018 there is a change affecting faculty and staff members who participate in payroll deduction for parking fees. Parking fees will now be made with Post-Tax rather than Pre-Tax dollars. This change in procedure is brought about by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that was signed earlier this year. Initial questions can be addressed by contacting Parking Services via parkingservices@nku.edu or x5505.

Parking Tips

If you're having trouble finding parking, you can rely on Lot O and the Welcome Center Garage, the two most under-used locations on campus. The exchange is an extended walk to your destination. Use this map to find those lots and plan your route.

Reserved parking spots in Lot C and Lot N are still available. Please contact the parking office to inquire about obtaining reserved parking.
