    • finding a job
    • Navigating college with a TPS (Temporary Protective Statuses) such as DACA, or students who identify as Undocumented
  • Referrals to a multitude of campus-based and community resources and
  • A physical space for students to engage in community. Our Center features a student lounge, a private study room, and a computer area with lockers and a library. Open 8am-7pm when the school year is in session (due to COVID-19, we are operating remotely: please contact our office for support).

The  Undocumented/DACAMented WILDCAT Student Services at the King Center aim to foster a sense of belonging, community and well-being for all students who consider themselves Dreamers. The University of Kentucky values and understands the experience Undocumented/DACAmented students bring to the Wildcat Community. We are truly committed to helping each student reach their goals and aspirations.
