hen you come to UK, you are UK - now and forever. These words from the 1920 University of Kentucky student handbook still ring true. Our community - award-winning faculty, dedicated staff and scholars like yourself - is more than just exams and grades; it is that sense of belonging. A place that supports your growth, challenges your viewpoints and builds lasting relationships. The residential experience is an integral part of your total education. We have listened to our students and feel strongly that we’ve transformed campus living to better serve you. It’s a fact: students who live on campus have higher GPAs and are more likely to graduate in four years.
Take advantage of our Living Learning Program; recent studies show that students who are in LLPs have increased GPAs, better progress towards degree and greater engagement with faculty, staff and fellow students. And it’s all nestled here in the heart of the Bluegrass Region of Kentucky. The city of Lexington has it all - from arena concerts to the farmers’ market - and is one of the “brainiest” cities in America. Lexington ranks 12th in overall percentage of its population age 25 and older having earned a bachelor’s degree. There’s so much more for you to discover about campus and the city of Lexington. We cannot wait until you are here.
