Campus Transformation

UK President Eli Capilouto's vision for the University of Kentucky is for it to become a thriving, residential research campus -- one poised to serve those students, scholars and staff today; one that is ready to serve the needs of the state and world tomorrow. To do this -- to create the best possible environment for the UK community's success -- the institution has invested, and largely self-financed, over $2.2 billion in a campus transformation, with new residence halls and classrooms, research facilities, dining facilities and athletic venues. President Eli Capilouto's vision is for UK to take its place among the best public universities in America, all of it designed to help our students, faculty and staff reach their potential together. We are transforming our campus so that we can continue to transform lives.
