All options provide residents with a friendly and academic environment, opportunities for community involvement, wireless internet and access to the campus computing network, cable television, KU card-operated laundry areas and a trained and engaging staff.

About the University of Kansas

The University of Kansas is celebrated for its world-class academics, research, and outstanding sports traditions. The oldest and most respected college guide, Fiske Guide to Colleges 2009, gives KU four stars.

The guide lauds the university’s 40 nationally ranked academic programs, a “thriving social scene,” and its beautiful campus —“among the loveliest in the United States.”

KU takes pride in its traditions including the Kansas Jayhawks and the famous “Rock Chalk” chant. Atop the rolling hills of Mount Oread sits KU’s beautiful main campus in Lawrence.

Founded in 1854 by Free Staters, Lawrence has about 90,000 people in a multicultural, friendly atmosphere with many attractions of a big city. Lawrence is known for its art scene, specialty shops, coffee houses, restaurants, and beautiful, historic downtown. Lawrence is just 35 miles west of Kansas City which offers fine dining, the best in jazz and blues, and professional sports franchises. Welcome to Lawrence and the University of Kansas.
