COVID Safety Protocols - Updated 6.10.22 - (Click Here to Review This Document)

Given the unique nature of the GSA program and the many unpredictable COVID-related variables that society may navigate during the months of the summer program, GSA has developed the following COVID-safety guidelines and procedures for both 2022 sessions. All policies are subject to change as GSA remains responsive to the ongoing nature of COVID spread.

IT'S THE INFORMATION YOU'VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR. In all seriousness, we know that the moving process can be overwhelming at times! However, please know that our amazing staff will be present to assist you. It'll be fun - We promise!



You can find this information in two locations: The Pre-Program Information Packet or the Move-In Day Campus Map.



Remember that map we just mentioned? This document will be your best friend on June 12th or July 10th! No matter what artform you're in, you're going to use this map to navigate UK's campus throughout the day. Included is information such as parking, cart stations, and where to register.

Move-In Instructions: A Quick Overview

  1. Drive to the Cart Stations FIRST. These are located on Martin Luther King Blvd (In between Avenue of Champions and E Maxwell Street). Park your car, put your flashers on, and unload all of your stuff. We've provided shopping carts for you to transport your items to Holmes Hall (your new home).
  2. Park your Car - While at least one of you pushes the shopping cart to Holmes Hall, someone will have to park the car. The main parking lot is just one street over, on Lexington Avenue. Parking will be free today, so don't worry! Just make sure you go to Coliseum Parking Lot.
  3. Car Parkers - Join your loved one(s) at Holmes Hall. Now you're ready to check into GSA 2022!

NOTE - There will be GSA signs and plenty of staff members available to direct you in case you get lost.

As stated in the Instrumental Music discipline letters, you will need to unload your large instrument (if applicable) at the Fine Arts Building between 12:00pm and 1:00pm only.

Please follow the directions to the Fine Arts Building, exactly as listed in this map. This route starts at the Coliseum Parking Lot
