Directions & Parking

From I-75 South I-64 East or West
Take exit 113 (marked Paris/Lexington). Turn right off the exit ramp onto North Broadway (US 68). Follow through downtown approximately 3.5 miles. Two blocks past the Hyatt Regency Lexington, turn left onto West Maxwell Street. Follow to the corner of UK's campus, turning right on Rose Street. King Library is not situated on a street, so you'll need to find parking and review campus maps.

From the Bluegrass Parkway
Turn right off the exit onto Versailles Road (US 60). Follow it about 10 miles until it becomes a one way street (West Maxwell Street). Follow to the corner of UK's campus, turning right on Rose Street. The King Library is not situated on a street so you'll need to find parking and review campus maps.

From I-75 North
Take exit 104 (marked Athens/Lexington). Turn left off the ramp onto Athens Boonesboro Road (which turns into Richmond Road, and then Main Street without taking any turns). Follow for 8.2 miles to downtown. Turn left onto Rose Street. The King Library is not situated on a street so you'll need to find parking and review campus maps.

On-Campus Directions
The Margaret I. King Library is situated in the middle of campus, bordered by the Lucille Caudill Little Fine Arts Library on the North, the Fine Arts Building on the Northeast, Maxwell Place on the East, Chemistry-Physics on the Southeast, and Pence Hall on the Southwest. The Special Collections Research Center is on the north side of King Library, the side facing Lucille Caudill Little Fine Arts Library. See a campus map for more details.
