Sign Your Contract

Once you're admitted to KU and have a KU online ID, sign your on-line housing contract. To be eligible to apply for a scholarship hall, you will need to have already applied for Student Housing and agreed to the contract terms.

Short Answer Essay

Students who do not have an active KU Student Housing contract for the term for which they are applying will not be able to submit a scholarship hall application. But if you do have an active contract, here's how to submit the short answer essay:

  • Login to the myKU portal
  • Select “Services”
  • Click the green “Log in to Housing” button
  • Click “Scholarship Hall Application”
  • Answer the essay "Why do you want to live in the scholarship hall community?" There is a 250-word limit.

GPA and Test Scores

Your GPA and test scores are reviewed for academic achievement. They were part of your Admissions application and you don't need to re-send them.

Financial Aid

Your FAFSA is reviewed to assess financial need. It was part of your student financial aid application and you don't need to re-send it. Applicants can be considered without completing FAFSA.


Apply for Student Housing


  • Scholarship Hall offers begin going out early January and are sent at the end of every month.

  • If you do not receive a scholarship hall offer for the fall, you may apply for the spring semester. There will be Scholarship Hall openings for the spring semester because students graduate, study abroad, or pursue other opportunities.

  • If students are not chosen for a January opening, they remain on the list for consideration during spring semester; however, applications do not remain active for the next academic year.

  • For current residents interested in an immediate move, contact to check available space.
