Moving in!

Students have been moving into UK each fall since the 1860's.  The first on-campus dorm, Whitehall, was for men only.  Even though women began attending UK in 1880, they had no place to live on campus until the construction of Patterson Hall nearly a quarter century later.



Whitehall Men's Dormitory





The Patterson Office Tower replaced Whitehall dormitory in the 1960's.











Patterson Hall



Patterson Hall for women opened in 1904 but state funding stipulated that it must be constructed "off campus," thus its location across Euclid Avenue from what was then the main campus.












Back in the day parents and students dressed more formally for the big move.













Wonder how many students moving in this week know that suitcases were not always on wheels?




Thanks to the assistance of large numbers of UK volunteers (administrators, staff, and faculty), this year's move-in should be the best ever and hopefully easier than balancing a table on one's head!


Welcome new Wildcats!!
