Memorial Hall is a prominent building on the campus of the University of Kentucky. Built in 1929 as a memorial to those who died in World War I, it is used for lectures and performances, and also serves as a site for graduation ceremonies of some colleges within the university. It is located on central campus at the end of Funkhouser Drive.
The building is a symbol of the university, often used in promotions and advertising. Its clock tower is known for being featured in the UK logo, between the U and the K. The Memorial Hall features cases within its traverse central hall that hold the names of students that served in the World Wars from all the Kentucky counties. The hall also features a hand-painted folk mural that has for years sparred controversy over its racial depictions.
