Learn about Projects for University of Kentucky, including Student Center Renovation & Expansion, The Cornerstone, and Renew/Modernize Facilities.
The University of Kentucky's Student Center was originally constructed in 1938 and expanded in 1968 and 1982. The Project replaced the outdated existing student center with a state-of-the art new facility, retaining the historic original 1938 portion of the building and preserving the Alumni Gymnasium originally constructed in 1924. The renovated and expanded facility accommodates a growing student enrollment and includes an atrium, recreation area, lounges, conference facilities, entertainment venues, retail space, food service, bookstore, student organization space, and administrative support offices.
The Cornerstone serves as the gateway to an emerging innovation district that will further link the University with the City of Lexington. The project is scheduled to be completed in fall 2020. The Cornerstone property will allow UK to provide much-needed additional parking capacity on the north side of campus, by expanding the existing parking structure at Limestone and Upper Streets to include more than 900 new spaces. These additional parking spaces will further improve mobility and access to, from and around campus for our students, faculty, staff and visitors.
The ground floor of The Cornerstone will include a flexible, technology-rich innovation space with a variety of programming to stimulate conversation and collaboration between students, faculty, staff and community. Other features of The Cornerstone include a gamers' lounge, a multiuse 100-seat theater that can host esports tournaments, hold classes, and be the home for a myriad of other events and a food hall with shared seating to create additional opportunity to build community and collaboration.

The University's Renew/Modernize Facilities Capital Project is a multi-phase effort to renew and modernize buildings that make up the core of central campus. By rehabilitating, restoring, and modernizing these facilities, the University can better preserve its heritage, conserve energy, create an environment for more efficient and effective teaching, and attract productive researchers. The project will include modernization efforts on the Chemistry-Physics Building, Frazee Hall, Patterson Office Tower, White Hall Classroom Building, Enoch Grehan Journalism Building as well as other buildings in the core of central campus.
Constructed in 1973 and originally called Commonwealth Stadium, the facility had a capacity of 57,800. It was originally completed at a cost of $12 million by the firm of Huber, Hunt, and Nichols. The stadium and parking areas rest on an 86-acre plot that was once part of the UK Experimental Station Farm Grounds.
In 2013, the University of Kentucky embarked on the ambitious renovation and expansion of Kroger Field. The stadium reopened in 2015 with widened concourses, new restrooms and a stadium packed with premium amenities including suites, loge seating and private lounges.
In 2012, the University embarked upon a historic multi-phased P3 partnership with Education Realty Trust (EdR/Greystar) to construct state of the art student housing facilities on campus. The new housing development provided new housing to enhance the learning experience for students at the University of Kentucky. The multi-phased project replaced most of the existing student housing located across campus with modern state of the art facilities.
The Albert B. Chandler Hospital Facilities Development Plan (Development Plan) provides for the systemic replacement and renovation of patient care facilities. Since the opening of the first two patient care floors in Pavilion A of the new patient care facility in May 2011, UK HealthCare (UKHC) has continued to experience strong patient demand for the delivery of its hospital system services. This volume increase has placed substantial capacity and throughout constraints on the hospital system operations, requiring continued fit-out of Pavilion A and the renovation of Pavilions H, HA, and G to provide adequate facilities for patient care.
