Dalton-Voigt Residence Hall
Dalton-Voigt signals a new vision of campus living and learning. The centerpiece of each floor of this four-story building is a common study space where you can collaborate with your peers outside the classroom.
Each two-person room includes beds, dressers, closets, desks, chairs, sinks and a bathroom you will share with the room next door. Kitchen and laundry facilities are also available.
Kincaid Residence Hall
Kincaid is one of our two newest residence halls, with four floors of rooms, as well as beautiful common areas where you can study, hang out or watch the big game with friends.
Each two-person room includes beds, dressers, closets, desks, chairs, sinks and a bathroom you share with your roommate. Kitchen and laundry facilities are also available.
Poole Residence Center
Tucked between Thomas Field and Transy’s community garden, Poole Residence Center is surrounded by greenspace–an oasis in downtown Lexington. As our smallest first year community, you’re sure to make close connections with the people on your hall and in your building as a Poole resident.
Poole Residence Center provides suite-style living on the Fourth Street block of campus. Each unit shares a bathroom with the room next to it, and study lounges are available. Rooms have beds, desks, chairs, dressers, shelves and closets.
