Thomas More University acquires NKY Five Seasons location

CRESTVIEW HILLS, Ky. — Thomas More University is ringing in the new year with a bang as they announce the acquisition of the Northern Kentucky Racquet Club, better known to the community as the Five Seasons Family Sports Club facility in Northern Kentucky, located at 345 Thomas More Parkway in Crestview Hills.

This acquisition includes the largest philanthropic gift in University history, as well as financing through Thomas More partner Republic Bank. As part of ongoing initiatives to expand the University’s geographic footprint and enhance student spaces, adding Five Seasons increases Thomas More’s acreage by 9% and its facility’s square footage by 24%. Its Crestview Hills campus now spans 126.7 acres, with a total facility square footage coming in at 577,594.

As Thomas More continues the momentum of expanding its campus, providing a student-centered experience remains the priority. “Acquiring this Five Seasons location in Northern Kentucky will ultimately be a huge benefit for our students,” explains Thomas More University President Joseph L. Chillo, LP.D. “Since launching our Strategic Plan: Lighting the Way in 2021, and the corresponding Second Century Campaign: It’s time for More, we have been transforming campus to serve our students better. The Catholic Liberal Arts educational experience provided at Thomas More is strategically designed for student success. By providing our students with the very best facilities, resources, and opportunities, we ensure that they have the tools to thrive in their careers and in their lives.”

This expansion also creates cohesion by uniting Thomas More’s south campus. In Nov. 2022, the University announced the relocation of the Education and Psychology departments to the newly named Cabrini Hall at 365 Thomas More Parkway, which borders the Five Seasons club. Similarly, the north campus was just made more accessible to the community through a new crosswalk placed just down Thomas More Parkway connecting Covington and Centennial Halls, 207 and 209 Thomas More Parkway, where select offices were relocated early last year.

Thomas More University will maintain its strong partnership with Five Seasons as a business will continue at the club as usual. The club will continue to operate under the Five Seasons brand name.

“The Five Seasons management team will continue overseeing day-to-day operations and members can expect a seamless transition and the same amenities, programming, and services that they have enjoyed over the years,” added Chillo.
