Welcome to the Big Blue Nation.

Our Open House and Events series is designed to introduce you to what's possible at the University of Kentucky. Whether you're traveling to Lexington or we're bringing the Big Blue Nation to your town, we're excited to connect with you! 

Be sure to check this page regularly as we continue to update offerings for our 2023-2024 Open House and Events series. 

Big Blue Open Houses

We're rolling out the Big Blue carpet and inviting you to experience our campus.

At UK, we've carefully curated all you need to be successful - opportunities, people, resources and spaces - and our Big Blue Open House events are designed for exploration.

The University of Kentucky community is here for you - the admissions team, tour guides, college representatives, residential life and campus resources - to help you explore your wildest ambitions and find opportunities at the University of Kentucky.

We can't wait to meet you!
