2019-2020 application and contract available Sept. 5

Tuesday, September 4, 2018

If you’re newly admitted – and apply for KU Student Housing and agree to contract terms by May 1, 2019 – you’re guaranteed a space.

Use this checklist:

Applying and agreeing to contract terms begins 8 a.m. Sept. 5, but you can apply anytime. If you apply by May 1, you are guaranteed a space.

Pay the $50 non-refundable application fee when it appears on your KU Enroll & Pay bill. It will appear several days after your contract is submitted.

We’ll send information about your group number (which tells you the date you'll select your room) well in advance of room selection in April.

RoomSync, KU's optional roommate matching service. KU Student Housing offers RoomSync as a roommate matching software beginning in late October. By using this passcode-protected Facebook app, you can meet other new students and potentially find a roommate. We’ll email the passcode when RoomSync is available.
