Upcoming KU Student Housing timelines for returning residents and new incoming Jayhawks. Instructions for signing a contract are here.
1. Next year’s housing for current residents: Current freshman, upperclass, or transfer students who need housing for the academic year 2021-22. The KU Student Housing contract for next year for current residents is available. You will not have a $50 application fee – just go online to the myKU portal to sign the contract. You will select your room the next day.
The great news for you is that returning residents choose space before the incoming class so if you and your roommates have a particular space in mind – you’re first in line to choose it!
2. August 2021 incoming Jayhawks: Residents who will enter KU for the academic year 2021-22. Apply and pay your application fee. The contract is available now. Apply after you're admitted to KU. The earlier you apply, the earlier your room selection date in the spring. Pay the $50 non-refundable application fee unless you received a fee waiver from KU Admissions. Optional steps include a scholarship hall application or complete a questionnaire for roommate matching.
Select your space (April 2021).
Your group number determines your room selection date, which begins in April 2021. Find your group number in the myKU housing portal. Use your group number to find your selection time.

If you wish, you may also complete a questionnaire regarding potential roommates or go potluck to find roommate friends in the Jayhawk flock. If you find your roommate after selecting a room, don’t worry. Look at the "roommate" tab for instructions on how to add them to your room.
Living on campus offers the best and easiest transition to college life. We can’t wait to welcome you.
