Student Life

Welcome to Lexington

Nestled among some of the most beautiful scenery in the United States, Lexington was founded in 1775. It grew to be one of the largest and wealthiest towns west of the Allegheny Mountains by 1820, gaining the nickname “Athens of the West.”

Today, the city boasts more than a quarter million people. Steeped in the rich thoroughbred traditions of the bluegrass, Lexington offers residents the opportunity to see over 50 breeds of horses at the Kentucky Horse Park, to try their luck at Keeneland Race Course or enjoy a horse farm tour. And Lexington has much more to offer, including world-class restaurants, galleries and shopping, as well as a rich history revealed through historic homes, renowned distilleries and the restored Shaker Village at Pleasant Hill, the largest in the world.

There are three requirements that must be met in order to live in Sullivan Lexington Student Housing:

  • A resident must be a full time student (taking at least 12 credit hours)
  • Undergraduate residents must be under the age of 21 in order to move into the hall (should a student turn 21 while living in the hall, they will be permitted to stay but must abide by the same policies as all other residents as stated in the Housing Manual).
  • Must live at least 30 min or more outside of lexington

Early applications are recommended! Apartments are assigned on a first come, first-served basis, and students are urged to apply early. Upon completion of the college application, a housing application must be completed along with a $95 non-refundable application/reservation fee. Before move-in, which is usually the Thursday preceding a class start, students must also satisfy a $200 housing deposit and a $30 key deposit.

Many students residing in the Lexington campus student housing are able to include all, or most of, their rent in their financial aid package. To determine if this is possible, it is critical that application be made early. Your admissions officer can provide more information on available housing and what steps need to be taken. Student housing is available only to out-of-town students under the age of 21. Out-of-town students may choose to stay in student housing or arrange for their own housing. The admissions staff can provide lists of alternative accommodations near the campus.
