UK has established several new campus canopies — covered outdoor spaces that support community while promoting physical distancing and being outdoors. The canopies create opportunities and spaces to socialize, dine, study and participate in approved outdoor events.
Each of these outdoor community gathering spaces are equipped with cleaning stations for sanitizing tables and chairs before use and personal hand sanitization. The certificate of occupancy for each canopy is clearly displayed along with other important "Healthy Campus" messages about how to "protect, respect and do your part".
UK Housing is committed to providing a transformative residential education. In everything we do, we prioritize health and safety within UK’s residence halls in alignment with CDC guidelines.
Specific plans for individual rooms, halls and areas have been developed based on area limitations and options. Occupancy in rooms is guided by overall room capacity.
Transportation Services provides commuting alternatives and campus mobility for University of Kentucky employees, students and guests. As the COVID-19 situation evolves, Transportation Services will adapt in accordance with CDC and state health and safety guidelines.
The health and wellness of our community is our top priority. The university is offering recreational opportunities for our students, faculty and staff during the fall 2020 semester.
