Housing Revitalization

Lyman T. Johnson Hall & Donovan Residence Hall are Phase I of a the total revitalization of all on-campus housing at the University of Kentucky. While replete with modern living spaces, academic planning was a primary focus in the new facilities.

Two, four story buildings create a living-learning community featuring double occupancy semi-suites, generous community living, as well as study and classroom areas, including 16 active learning/meeting spaces. A communal kitchen capable of catering up to 100 guests and high-tech laundry facilities are located in each building. Three multi-disciplinary classrooms with furniture on casters, allow the switch from instructional classroom to open collaborative co-curricular programming space in just minutes.

Student living and learning are enriched with works by Kentucky artists in the lobbies, as well as an inner courtyard with an outdoor amphitheater wired for lights and sound for dramatic productions and concerts.

A cupola towering over all is equipped with UK blue lighting that will shine on special occasions.

The twin residence halls showcase supportive technology for modern student living, including Ethernet, wireless, and satellite connections throughout.

Home to approximately 400 Honors College students, Donovan Hall includes a walkout lower level to accommodate the Honors College academic and administrative needs. Smart classrooms, offices and multi-purpose rooms allow for many of the student residents to attend classes in the building where they live.

Lyman Johnson & Donovan Hall, are each LEED Silver certified featuring geothermal heating and cooling technology, as well as an overabundance of bike racks to encourage sustainable living.

They Aren't "Dorms" Anymore
Today’s college students embrace housing facilities that are lively, engaging, state-of-the-art, and sustainable.

Sherman Carter Barnhart's design solutions evaluate the entire campus and campus fabric to engage the residence hall with the university campus as a whole. Residence halls are not isolated but instead a key component to the campus. Residence halls are walkable, amenity-filled communities that more closely resemble a mixed-use apartment complex than what we once called a dormitory.

Fostering Privacy & Community
It's a balancing act. On one side the majority of freshmen coming to campus have never shared a bedroom. They want to choose how and when they socialize. On the other side, university and college officials know a sense of community must exist for students to succeed.

Our design solutions provide a balance. Student rooms feature private sleeping and study areas coupled with community eating and socializing spaces. To continue to foster a sense of community, each residence hall features kitchens, lounges and study spaces.
