KU Student Housing Mission

Building learning-centered communities through individual support and respect

KU Student Housing serves more than 5,000 students in a broad variety of campus living environments and communities consisting of more than 35 buildings, varying in size from duplex apartments, to small cooperative houses, to multistory residence halls, and high-rise apartment buildings, widely dispersed over nearly 100 acres with a facility value in excess of $450 million.

Among the things you'll find here are names and contact information for staff members who serve our residents. This page also contains information about the safety measures at KU, frequently asked questions and map and addresses for each hall.
