Saturday Shuttles to Blue Grass Airport

Conferees departing from the UK campus to the airport may bring their luggage to UK on the day of departure. Luggage can be stored in a secure area in the UK Student Center, room 211. A ticket will be issued at the time of drop-off. This ticket must be provided to retrieve any stored luggage. Please allow ample time to retrieve your luggage prior to departure.
