Living on campus a big part of the college experience.  

It allows you to take advantage of university resources, connect with other students, and transition to life away from home.  Also, research shows you're more likely to earn better grades if you live on campus. 

Named after UK's first female graduate, Belle C. Gunn, this first-year program is open to all University of Kentucky freshmen.  We seek students who, like Gunn, have passion and determination. 

Through field trips, professional development workshops, and service programs, we want students to apply their passions to global issues at the intersection of food, economics, and environment.  All students in this program will also enroll in connected courses, share study groups, and have an assigned peer mentor - all to help with the transition to college life. 

While all students will enjoy the same benefits, some events and projects will be geared toward students' preferences and career goals. Depending on interests, each student will join one of the following tracks: 

  • Food & Health 
  • Family & Community 
  • Nature & Landscapes 
  • Livestock & Equine

All students participating in our living learning program will live in Woodland Glen IV, one of UK's newest residence halls.
