After you're admitted and have your KU Online ID, follow the instructions to sign a contract. You'll need your seven-digit KU Student ID number to submit the contract. When you sign into Student Housing from the myKU portal (using a desktop computer, not tablet or phone), you can:

  • Submit contract after you’re admitted.
  • See information on selecting your space.
  • See current room or apartment number, dining plan, and roommates’ contact information. You will also find a cost breakdown that's based on your assignment and dining plan.
  • Request a dining plan change.
  • Select next year’s space, roommates and dining plan during the spring.

If you wish to apply for a scholarship hall, there are additional steps.



Admitted students use their KU online ID and password to enter the myKU portal. If you have not set up your account visit the technology webpage. Turn off pop-up blockers.

  • Choose "myKU" from the uppermost blue navigation bar above or go to the myKU portal page.
  • Enter your KU online ID and password.
  • Select "Services."

Sign into Housing

  • Choose "myKU" from the uppermost blue navigation bar above or go to the myKU portal page using a desktop computer, not a tablet or phone.
  • Enter your KU online ID and password.
  • Click “Services” and click “Student Housing.”
  • Click “Sign into Housing.”
  • Click "Select a Space and Dining Plan." If you have a preferred roommate you will need the roommate PIN and dining plan.

Please note: As students self-assign or are pulled-in as roommates, any remaining spaces in a room, suite or apartment are available for selection by other students. KU Student Housing retains the right to assign or re-assign any remaining spaces. Students may re-enter the self-assign process to seek a space or building change.

1. Identify your room and dining choices.

Consider your options before choosing your space or before choosing your apartment. Residents who will live in residence halls must also choose a dining plan. View the rates and definition of room type.

2. Sample screen shots and instructions for selecting your space.

The room selection schedule for 2018-19 has ended, so to select a room, contact housing@ku.edu. Rooms are available in most communities and we'll help you through the process.

When you choose your room online, you will see the abbreviations for each building name. The abbreviations and the full building name are below. If you have questions, call  KU Student Housing, 785-864-4560.
