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.

Our Admitted Student Day events have concluded for the spring semester. Check back in November 2024 for our 2025 Admitted Student Day offerings!
