In light of recent events and in preparation of potential future events, students and guardians returning to Kentucky State University should be aware of civic and political activities occurring across the nation in many state capitals. As you prepare to return to Kentucky State University and the Commonwealth’s capital city of Frankfort, please remain alert and avoid large gatherings.
Kentucky State University has employed additional security to assist with the repopulation of students on-campus and in auxiliary housing. Students and their guests should avoid the Capitol building and complex area until further notice.
All students should proceed through the main entrance of Kentucky State University to the William Exum Center parking lot. University security personnel will direct students for COVID-19 testing. Students residing in the Capital Plaza Hotel will exit at the same entrance, turning right onto Main Street and proceeding to Wilkerson Boulevard. From Wilkerson Boulevard, make a right onto Clinton Street. The right lane of Clinton Street is designated for unloading from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Before 8 a.m. or after 5 p.m., unloading will occur at the back of the hotel. Students in other auxiliary hotels should not be impacted by modified traffic patterns.
All students, whether residing on- or off-campus, are advised to stay alert and aware of their surroundings at all times. If you see something, say something. You may contact Campus Police at (502) 597-6878. If you have an emergency, please dial 9-1-1.
Again, returning students should avoid the Capitol area and any large gathering. The Kentucky State University campus remains under COVID-19 safety restrictions. Please familiarize yourself with Breds Back on the Hill Spring 2021.
