Current/Returning Undergraduate Students
The not-so-secret key to academic success at UK is living on campus. On average, students who live on campus have higher GPAs than their classmates who live off campus – and are more likely to graduate on time. As a returning student, you also have the added benefit of choosing to live in specific buildings with room types available only to upperclassmen. Additional options include two-bedroom apartments; two-bedroom deluxe suites; and four-bedroom apartments.
Graduate Student and Family Housing
UK has several on-campus living facilities specifically designed for full-time student families, full-time single graduate and doctoral students, and full-time non-traditional students. All of the facilities are conveniently located and there are different floor plans available to choose from. Most communities come fully furnished and include utilities, cable and internet service. UK also has resources available to assist you in your search for off-campus living accommodations in Lexington.

I think that's something that surprises the students the most about coming to campus is just how much like home it feels right away. Home will always be home for me, of course, but Lexington has become my second home. I would definitely call Lexington and campus my second home.
