Frequently Asked Questions

What is going on with the University of Kentucky Student Center?
The Student Center is undergoing its first renovation and expansion in over 30 years. Planning started in Spring of 2014, and the brand new facility is slated to open January 2018.

Why a renovation? Why now?
The original Student Center was completed in 1938. With additions happening in 1963 and 1982, the facility we’ve come to know and love has exhausted its original intentions.
The time has come to modernize and reinvent the facility for future generations of Kentucky Wildcats.

When is this going to start?
As of June 2014, the programming and inquiry phase is currently underway, with actual construction slated to break ground mid to late 2015.

When will the renovation be finished?
The renovation and expansion is scheduled to be completed in January of 2018.

Will this impact parking on campus?
We will be doing the best we can to minimize the interruption and impact that construction will have on our campus community. We will post updates in the “News” section of our site as they become necessary.
