With the opening of University Flats and Lewis Hall Honors College, Elauwit's construction phase of the revitalization of the University of Kentucky's on-campus housing has come to an end.

EdR, one of the nation's largest developers, owners and managers of high quality collegiate housing communities, announced the opening of the most recent phase of on-campus communities completing the massive on-campus transformation that UK started four years ago.

Elauwit has been working alongside EdR through the entirety of the project to install networking infrastructure for high-speed Internet, wireless internet, video services, and office networking. Service includes not only residential units, but live-and-learn classrooms as well.

Since 2013, it has been exciting to participate in the dramatic transformation of the UK housing environment on campus. We have a great partnership established with the UK IT team and EDR, allowing Elauwit to provide best-in-class technology services to the 6,850 residents of these communities.
— Taylor Jones, Chief Technology Officer at Elauwit
This was an ambitious project on the cutting edge for on-campus housing partnerships back when it began four years ago. Congratulations to EdR for making it a huge success, and for including Elauwit from day one.
— Bruce Sanders, Chief Marketing Officer at Elauwit

The entirety of the University of Kentucky project includes the following properties:


  • Lyman T Johnson
  • Donovan Hall
  • Hagan Hall
  • Jewell Hall
  • Blazer Hall
  • Chellgren Hall
  • Woodland Glen II
  • Woodland Glen III
  • Woodland Glen IV
  • Woodland Glen V
  • Holmes Hall

There’s a great deal of pride in seeing our teams come together to complete all phases of this project and to witness the positive difference this new housing has made for the University of Kentucky’s recruiting, retention and student success.
— Randy Churchey, CEO at EdR

The communities, which represent 90 percent of all on-campus housing at the University of Kentucky, also include nearly 200 active learning spaces for their residents.

Working with EdR, we created a housing system that is singularly focused on student success through modern, technology-rich living spaces that foster a sense of community. At UK, we put students at the center of everything we do.
— Eric N. Monday, UK's executive vice president for finance and administration

In addition to building the network that spans 14 properties, Elauwit continues to manage those services for the thousands of student residents providing 24/7/365 customer support to the residents and property staffs.
