UK residence halls planned and under construction were officially named at the Board of Trustees meeting this week.

Aside from Haggin Hall, all dorms can be renamed, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.

Although a naming rights amount has not been set, officials say that it will be in the seven- or eight-figure category, the Herald-Leader said.

The residence hall names, according to the Board’s agenda, are as follows:

Central Hall I — The north building of Phase I on Haggin Field (under construction now).
Central Hall II — The south building in Phase I on Haggin Field (under construction now).
Haggin Hall — The building that will replace the existing Haggin Hall.
Woodland Glen I — The Cooperstown site at the corner of Woodland and Hilltop avenues.
Woodland Glen II — The Cooperstown site at the corner of Woodland Avenue and Cooperstown Drive.
Champions Court I — The Blazer Parking Lot site on Avenue of Champions.
Champions Court II — The Wildcat Lodge site between Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and Lexington Avenue.
