Student Government Association is here to improve the quality of students' experiences while they are on campus, by listening to them and advocating on their behalf.

About Us

Welcome to our website! We have worked diligently to ensure that all of our resources are accessible to University of Kentucky's student body and we will use this site to aid in that effort. Please, look around and reach out to us if we can do better!

Student Government is passionate about students. SGA is more than just another student organization, we advocate for the students of the University of Kentucky, here to amplify their voices. We strive to empower students through providing programming, funding, and forums. We are here to support you.

A Letter from our President

Student and Academic Life Office of Student Organizations and Activities

Fellow Students and Campus Community,

Welcome to our website and thank you so much for your interest in the University of Kentucky Student Government Association. UKSGA’s mission is to serve each and every student. Our goal is to ensure you are being represented, advocated for, and that you feel the sense of belonging to which every Wildcat deserves. As your elected representatives from across campus, we strive to engage with the student body in order to guarantee the feedback we provide to administrators is not only accurate, but also matches the pulse of campus.

We invite you to explore and utilize our many services during your time as a student. Whether it be the Wildcat Wardrobe, legal services, or our countless number of grant opportunities – we want to make sure you have easy access to the services you are entitled to.

Finally, I encourage you to get involved! We have a great team of passionate leaders, but we can always benefit from new perspectives. Change cannot be made on campus without the tireless work of our student body. Run to be a senator or executive member in our spring general election, apply to be a director or coordinator, or just stay in touch and share with us your passions and/or concerns!

With any additionally questions or concerns feel free to contact us by phone (859-257-3191), by email (SGA.President@uky.edu) or stopping by our office (Gatton Student Center Room A267).

Go Cats,
Michael Hawse
