The 5 Best University of Kentucky Dorm

When looking for dorm space in UKY, you may have to compete with students from all 50 states and 127 different countries. But whether you want to live on or off-campus and how close to campus you’d like to be are big factors when choosing your dorm. If you choose to live on campus, there are several residence halls that accommodate freshmen and upperclassmen. Each has its own unique characteristics, but they all offer similar amenities such as dining options, study spaces, and laundry facilities.
