Housing Tours

There is currently only one residence hall housing tour offered during this time of the pandemic. There are no tours of apartments or scholarship halls. 
A tour of a residence hall two-person bedroom with bath (the showroom at Daisy Hill Commons) is available by appointment only. Tours are arranged through KU's Office of Admissions, 785-864-2700, not through the Daisy Hill Commons front desk. 
Additionally, there are videos of each of the housing options available under "halls and apartments" and we invite you to look at those. The list of times, dates, and locations below is what we will likely offer again when we offer tours in the future.

You are invited to tour KU Student Housing options during the academic year. There is no need to call ahead to reserve a tour—just be at the location listed below at the appropriate time. Here are tour times—and welcome to The University of Kansas!
