WKU has turned Colonial Courts apartments into housing for visiting scholars. These houses will be short-term living arrangements for visiting scholars.
“Colonial Court is almost an unknown, hidden area here on campus. It was built in 1934 by Henry Hardin Cherry,” said Dr. Larry Calliouett, coordinator of WKU’s Visiting Scholars Program.
The six houses in Colonial Courts have been completely stripped to the foundation and renovated with today’s standards.
WKU has also purchased three four-plexes in the Colonial Court. Renovations to refurbish one of the apartment complexes began recently. The other two will eventually be torn down to make way for an office complex for international programs.
The project was the topic of the following “View from the Hill” segment by WKU’s Amy Bingham DeCesare:
