Move-In 2014 Continued Friday, Aug. 22

Published: Aug 22, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 22, 2014) — Day 3 of University of Kentucky Move-In 2014 went well, with 2,638 first-year students moving in today. The Kirwan-Blanding Complex was the busiest spot.  UK President Eli Capilouto and Dr. Mary Lynne Capilouto welcomed the new students and their families as they drove into the Kirwan-Blanding mall area to unload their vehicles. The UK Band provided morning entertainment as well.

 

The massive undertaking of Move-In 2014 involves a full-out effort by Auxiliary Services and is highly dependent on volunteers. For Friday only, the largest of the Move-In days, 18 student organizations provided 220 student volunteers combined with 293 faculty and staff volunteers for a total of 513 workers today. 736 carts were being used to move items into the residence halls.  

 

When all is said and done, approximately 6,300 students will be living in on-campus residence halls, and UK has contracted with two nearby apartment complexes to provide housing for between 500-600 more students who had applied for UK housing – most of them upper-class students.  

 

Another major move-in day is Satturday, Aug. 23, when many upper-class students and others who could not make earlier dates — at least another 1,000 students — will move into residence halls.  K Week activities start Friday and classes begin Wednesday, Aug. 27.
