The Department of Psychology is housed in Kastle Hall, a large, three-story building that is devoted entirely to the Department of Psychology. Kastle Hall is centrally located on the University of Kentucky campus; it is adjacent to buildings for physical and biological science, and a well-equipped computing center, and the main library is only 100 yards away. All faculty and graduate students have office space in Kastle Hall, all faculty members also have research space, and graduate students have a lab equipped with computers with a variety of word processing and statistical programs as well as wireless internet access. The building also includes administrative offices, as well as research, classroom, and meeting space. You can view the video below for a virtual "tour" of Kastle Hall. 

As the department has grown, it has succeeded in adding research space outside of Kastle Hall. Several clinical faculty persons now occupy laboratory space in Breckenridge Hall, and are also additional research facilities in the Biological and Behavioral Sciences Research Building.

The first floor of Kastle Hall is devoted mainly to research, with facilities for animal experimentation occupying one-half of the research space on this floor and facilities for human experimentation and clinical research occupying the other half; sophisticated videotaping facilities support clinical supervision and observational research. The second and third floors of Kastle Hall contain faculty and student offices, classrooms, and additional space for human research.

Other facilities include the Clinic for Emotional Health (CEH) and the Harris Center for Psychological Services.
