About Us

What We Do

The Auxiliary Services unit provides major services to the University of Kentucky campus community with an ethos that reflects our core values surrounding hospitality, accountability, and selfless customer service.  The primary functions of Auxiliary Services consist of the overall operations for Housing (undergraduate and graduate), Dining Services, Gatton Student Center, UK Bookstore, University Events Management, and the UK Post Office.  Maintaining positive and productive relationships with our external partners are key components to our success – particularly with housing (Greystar), dining (Aramark), and the bookstore (Barnes & Noble).


Our Mission

Framed in an ethos of hospitality and care, we provide services for the University of Kentucky community that are essential to a living and learning environment that fosters well-being, academic success, and personal/professional development.
