Eastern Kentucky University is in the process of constructing its first new residence hall in almost 40 years. Working with Ross Tarrant Architects, the Mackey Mitchell project team includes Gwynn Zivic, Matthew Roeder, Steve Emer and Dan Mitchell. The LEED-silver anticipated 259-bed hall features full suite-style living with individual bedrooms connected by a common living space shared by 2 to 4 people. A multi-purpose room/student lounge with moveable partitions provides flexible use of space.
Eastern Kentucky ranks in the top tier of “Regional Universities in the South” in the 2011 edition of “Best Colleges” by U.S. News & World Report. Recently, Forbes also ranked EKU among “America’s Best Colleges” for the third consecutive year, essentially placing the university in the top 9 percent of colleges and universities nationwide.
