Lighting Campus for a Cause


Throughout the University of Kentucky campus, various buildings—Memorial Hall, W.T. Young Library, Gatton College of Business and Economics, the Main Building, the 90, and several residence halls—have the capacity to display colored lights.

We light the buildings for the following reasons:

  • Significant academic or athletic accomplishments at the university
  • Events that have a strong connection to the institution – research the university is conducting, issues in which the university is directly involved
  • A display of solidarity by the university community (to memorialize fallen soldiers or the death of a prominent member of the university community or public official, for example)

This page will be updated during periods when lights are displayed.
