About UK's Transformation

The University of Kentucky's momentous physical transformation continues, positively impacting its ability to attract and retain students, faculty and staff. From July 2011 to June 2021, 187 capital projects totaling $2.8 billion have been initiated, encompassing quality of life and community; academics and research; healthcare; infrastructure; and athletic projects. The funding model for the transformation has been strategically diverse (debt, private partners, university funds, state funds, and gifts) to maintain the University's fiscally sound condition. Future projects are expected to focus primarily on health care and modernizing existing academic facilities.
