Nice campus. It was clean and there were lots of parking garages around campus. The building architecture was nice, and it was heavily treed. Good social scene on the perimeter of campus and was in walking distance.

This is a lovely campus. There are historic buildings as well as the brand new ones, as the University has been updated since 2014. The Visitor Center is unbelievable. It is vast, new and has such comfortable seating. It is homey and yet has the bookstore and restaurants as well as one of the main dining halls. The outdoor areas are well kept. It was so nice to walk around the area.

Besides having an amazing basketball team to watch in one of the greatest gyms ever created, the school and university life are great. The dorm rooms are comfortably sized and efficient for living on campus. As long as you have no problems with huge class rooms, you can't beat this place. The academics and social life are the best I've experienced.

There is almost no disjuncture from urban Lexington to the campus itself save for wandering students and less traffic. Yes, there is more open space on "campus", but one retains the feel of a medium sized downtown area. Unless, you come for sports/music/lecture events, a special visit is not warranted.

We only did a ride through on a Sunday morning but the grounds are beautiful. Lots of green space and beautiful mix of old and new buildings.

Love the UK campus with the old and new buildings mixed in. Still lots of green space with nice landscaping. The new student center is awesome and the center of activity during the summer as well as school year.

Everything about this campus screams UK. They have done a fantastic job or renovating. The dorms have just completed a 2.3 million dollar renovation. The hospital is amazing and easy to find.
