Jewell Hall



A Gem of Student Housing

Jewell Hall is the first of four new residence halls on the north side of campus. The 7 story building features 2 bedroom suites, residence kitchens, and shared high tech laundry facilities. The residence hall accommodates 740 students with amenities such as wireless Internet, satellite televisions, and several academic living/learning communities providing social and academic interaction between students of the same majors.

Jewell Hall features two unique spaces. The first, a 4,000 SF seventh floor roof top terrace provides a unique outdoor gathering space with tables and chairs that is highlighted by dramatic panoramic views of the University campus and downtown Lexington. The second, located on the ground floor, Champion Court features a campus coffee shop and an academic tutoring center, The Study.

The Study is an 8,400 SF central student tutoring and collaboration facility to serve the north side of the campus. The Study’s is a flexible and collaborative highly technologically advanced space, where groups of students or individual students can work on projects, study or receive individual or group tutoring. The facility is clad from floor to ceiling with a high tech, modular DIRTT Wall system that makes every wall a writing surface. The system is highly customized and electronically integrated with video monitors that allow student to plug directly into to use when developing presentations. Part of The Study is on a raised DIRTT Floor system which also allows for flexibility with power and data connections for smart furniture.

The Study also accommodates a third party coffee shop, which boasts three 18’ foot wide operable storefronts that can be opened during pleasant weather to take advantage of the expansive arcade and plaza in front of The Study. The coffee shop also has a small fold down stage for patrons to use for small performances and exhibits.

Jewell Hall is LEED Silver Certified. Bike racks are scattered throughout the site to encourage sustainability.


Amazing project for the future of the Russell County Students.Progress continues on the Lake Cumberland Regional College & Workforce Center! The building (under construction by Branscum Construction Company, Inc) is beginning to resemble the design rendering by Sherman Carter Barnhart Architects. The center is being constructed on the grounds of Russell County High School but will be a resource for the entire region. The center is expected to serve 2,215 high school students and 620 adults in all five primary Kentucky Workforce Investment Board sectors — advanced manufacturing, healthcare, technology, construction trades, and transportation.
