Kenilworth opened in August 2006. Originally built in 1914 as a Ford Model T plant, the remodeled apartments offer truly unique living options on Milwaukee's Eastside.

The first floor of Kenilworth includes retail space currently occupied by a pizza parlor, 24-hour gym, salon, and a national home furnishings/clothing chain.

The east side of the Kenilworth building houses the UWM Peck School of the Arts, which frequently hosts gallery shows and live performances.

Approximately 330 students live in one, two, and three-bedroom apartments. Kenilworth Square also has approximately 20 apartments reserved for short-term guest housing.
