What Students Are Saying

3.96 Average Rating
I love the new dorms!!! Where else can a college student get a room with tempur-pedic mattresses granite countertops?? It is by far the most comfortable dorm arrangements I saw during my many college visiting trips. There was no comparison, really.

i love the food.
marini from chicago, il
there multiple places that offer food throughout the university. for example the den and the 90 have food from many different fast food chains. with your housing plan you can also pick a meal plan that lets you buy food around campus.

At the University of Kentucky, students are always getting new places to eat good, healthy food. Located at various places across campus are dining areas ranging from fast food, to sit down meals, to buffets. Students never have to worry about not having a place to eat on campus.
Caitlin from Evarts, KY
excellent food! everything from greasy goodness to super delicious salads. my favorite would have to be the chicken vinaigrette salad!!! but the food choices here rock your socks!
