About Pearce Ford Tower

  • All Female Residence Hall 
  • Open to Freshmen - Upperclassmen

Pearce Ford Tower (PFT) is a 27 story, female residence hall located on the south end of campus. This landmark hall was built in 1970 and is the tallest residence hall in Kentucky. PFT was completely renovated in 2009. The 27th floor houses a satellite Learning Center and entertainment area featuring two TV lounges, ping pong tables, pool tables, and Foosball.

*This hall closes during Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring breaks. If you need to stay on campus during those times, please apply for Bemis Lawrence Hall and list "extended living" as your most important preference.
