Resources

KU Student Housing residents have a variety of resources at their disposal, including the writing center, advising center and a center devoted to academic achievement and access. In each hall, there are Academic Resource Centers, which are designated study and classroom spaces. Here is a brief description of each of the services that are most helpful to KU students. Here is the link to academic calender page for more information.
 

Writing Center

The Writing Center offers a variety of ways for students and members of the community to get feedback on their writing. If you already know which type of consultation you'd like, you may submit your writing for e-mail feedback or schedule a face-to-face or videoconference consultation. Please let your consultant know if you need an accommodation due to a disability.

Location

Writing Centers are located in Daisy Hill Commons, Hashinger and Oliver Halls. For a complete list of locations and hours, see this link: http://writing.ku.edu/hours-locations

Academic Accommodations

The AAAC serves as the home for Student Access Services for students at KU. If you have a documented disability, you work directly with Student Access Services to provide and coordinate the appropriate accommodations. Contact Student Access Services in order to secure the proper accommodations.

Tutoring Services

The AAAC also provides students with Tutoring Services at KU. Students may request a tutor in disciplines that include Math, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, French, Spanish, and Italian. Other courses may be offered based on student demand and the availability of tutors. Students may contact tutoring services about potentially adding a course if one is not currently being offered. This program provides small group, course specific tutoring and the groups meet twice a week for one-and-a-half hours each session.

Learning Strategy Consultations

Finally, the AAAC offers individual consultations on skill development in the areas of time management, study skills, test taking strategies, and more. During these appointments you will work with an AAAC staff member to develop success strategies specific to your own needs and goals. Contact AAAC to schedule a one-on-one appointment.

Internet

Wireless Internet is part of your housing contract at KU. Residents can register for an account at www.MyResNet.com. Once you’ve created a unique username and password, you can log in and access the ResNet on the day you move in to KU. The service (pdf) is provided by Apogee.

Included in your contract is 40 mbps download speed and four additional devices. Or you may purchase an enhanced level of service.

Printing

Another service provided to Student Housing residents is a dedicated print station for both black and white and color. Screenshots are available to walk you through the process.

Your print job goes to a virtual queue. It can then “be released” to any hall (even a hall you don’t live in). So, a Templin resident studying with an Oliver Hall friend may pick up printing in either hall. For mobile printing or a USB flash drive, release your print job to any hall using the virtual queue.

Steps you’ll take to print

  1. When you select print, the option that appears will be the printer for whatever residence hall you’re standing in (even if you’re not in the hall where you live.) KU Student Housing printeres are labeled beginning with "DSH."
  2. Open your web browser and go to papercut.ku.edu.
  3. Log in with your KU online ID and password.
  4. In a "summary tab" select "jobs pending release."
  5. Choose your job and select "release all" to print.
  6. Please be mindful of using this resource and be good stewards of paper and ink.

If you have difficulty, notify hall staff or go to the service desk.
