Co-ed scholarship halls

As a "schol haller" you'll live, study, eat, and help build traditions that create a family atmosphere in which you'll know and care for others long after graduation. Any prospective or current undergraduate student may apply for this competitive selection process.

KU has 12 scholarship halls, two of which are coed. The "scholarship" is a lower housing rate because everyone completes four to six hours of weekly duties, such as cooking or cleaning for the 50-person community. Students who want a scholarship hall should sign a contract, then fill out the additional materials for scholarship hall application.
