Save the Date: August 19 - 22, 2021
In keeping with the University of Kentucky’s anticipated return to normal operations in the fall of 2021, we are planning for a K Week that prepares our incoming students for a campus-based experience. We expect to host in-person events while keeping some virtual components for those who may desire them and will follow the guidance of UK’s health and safety experts as we make plans. To fully participate in K Week, the second step in the orientation process to UK, all new undergraduate students should mark their calendars for Thursday, August 19 – Sunday, August 22. Email KWeek@lsv.uky.edu with any questions.
The K Week schedule of events will be available later this summer.
The University of Kentucky is excited to welcome you to campus for K Week, which is known as the best way to get started at UK! We are working tirelessly to create a welcoming experience that you can look forward to taking part in.
As the second step in the orientation process, all new undergraduate students – both freshmen and transfers – are expected to participate in K Week. There are a few key events for all new students, including the New Student Induction Ceremony, K Team gatherings, and college meetings. Beyond those, there are many, many more events that you can pick and choose from based on your own interests and needs. A schedule of events is currently being developed and will be posted online in August.
Attendance at K Week events is important and will be taken at several K Week events, so be sure to have your Event Pass ready.
K Week is one of the biggest traditions on campus, and we encourage you to take full advantage of it. You get out what you put in, so be confident and take that first step! Learn more by watching the below video of K Week 2017 and check out these frequently asked questions.
