To support student participation in the research and education efforts of the University of Kentucky Research and Education Center (UKREC) in Princeton, the College has dedicated two of its houses at UKREC to serve as graduate and undergraduate student housing. These houses are for temporary short-term housing and are intended for out-of-town students while they conduct their research and outreach work on the UKREC. Both houses have undergone a complete renovation to serve this purpose.

Both houses consist of 3 bedrooms (each with 2 beds for a total occupancy of 6 people), 2 bathrooms, a living area, a dining area, and kitchen equipped with a refrigerator, microwave, range/oven, and coffee maker.  A washer and dryer is also available in both houses for use by students.

The houses are provisioned with the following items: bed linens, including sheets and a comforter; bath and hand towels and wash cloths, and paper and cleaning products for the bathrooms and kitchen. 

The houses are available for use by graduate and undergraduate students on a first come, first serve basis.  To learn more about the use of these houses or to make reservations call 270-365-7541 ext 21314 (direct phone line from a campus phone is 21314).
