COVID-19 Updates

The University of Kansas has modified its operations to protect the health and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and the community due to the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.

At left, you will find "updates for residents," which describes the move-out process during the spring 2020 semester. Going forward to the fall 2020 semester, here are plans for the operation of Student Housing beginning in August 2020.

We continue to partner with regional and national health officials and emergency management organizations to respond to evolving circumstances. For the most up-to-date info regarding coronavirus, please visit the university-wide coronavirus website.
