2014 - UK Students Provide Tour of New On-Campus Housing

UK leadership is equally pleased.  Within three years, this extraordinary public-private partnership has created 10 high-tech residence halls with 4,592 beds and 17 dedicated living-learning communities.

This revitalization is helping UK attract the brightest and best to its campus. Highlights of the incoming class and overall preliminary enrollment include:

  • Average ACT scores increased to 25.5, up from 25.3 last year
  • 13 National Merit, National Achievement and National Hispanic Finalists, up from a record 105 last year that placed UK among the Top 10 of public institutions
  • 10 first-year students with perfect ACT/SAT scores, up from 9 last year, and 2,402 first-year students with ACT/SATs of between 26 to 36.
  • 20,677 applied to UK — the first time applications exceeded 20,000. Applications are up 70 percent since 2009
  • Undergraduate African-American enrollment overall at 2,107; Hispanic enrollment at 849 and international enrollment at 807 reach new highs.
  • Number of students participating in new Living/Learning programs at 1,734, up from 960 last year
  • Resident/non-resident mix of 62 percent; 38 percent — a continuation of a planned growth in non-resident population to diversify the campus and help ensure that continued investments can be made in university faculty and staff


EdR is proud to partner with the University of Kentucky in the largest on-campus housing transformation in public higher education.
