The UK Dynasty UK is one of only seven universities in the U.S. that have programs in agriculture, engineering, law, medicine, and pharmacy on a single campus The William T. Young Library, opened in 1998, already has assumed a position among the worlds leading research libraries; its book endowment is the largest among public universities. The library measures 365,000 square feet and seats 4,000 people. UKs $1.4 billion annual budget makes it Kentuckys ninth largest corporation. Students represent 117 countries, all 50 states and every county in Kentucky. Since 1997, UK's enrollment has grown by 2,700 to over 28,094 students.
