Kentucky State University welcomes visitors to its campus year-round. Of course, Future Thorobreds get special treatment and should schedule a campus tour!

We are located in Kentucky’s capital city, Frankfort, which is in the heart of the world-famous Bluegrass region of the state. Because we are just miles from I-65 to the west, I-75 to the east and I-64, which runs through Frankfort, we are easy to find and easy to visit.

All tours must be scheduled at least five business days in advance.

Campus tours run Monday through Friday at 9:00am, 11:00am, 1:00pm, and 3:00pm. All tour scheduling is in Eastern Standard Time. Tours scheduled for Saturdays are by special request. Please e-mail Breana Smith, our tour coordinator, at to schedule a Saturday tour. Saturday tours must be scheduled seven days in advance.
