What’s New in KU Student Housing for 2018-19

Monday, July 23, 2018

Summer is busy as KU Student Housing prepares for your August arrival. Here’s a quick update on what’s waiting for you:

All residents will benefit from no-cost laundry. All washers are still high efficiency machines – “HE” laundry detergent or pods are your best choice.

Several construction and renovation projects are wrapping up:
Corbin and Battenfeld renovations are ready for new and returning residents for fall, and Corbin residents also will have an expanded visitation policy starting this year. Lewis Hall underwent a heating and air conditioning project this summer, and other student housing buildings will see improvements including new paint and replaced furniture.

New campus construction means some new or changed campus bus routes:
The 18th Street stops will offer full service for McCarthy, Oliver, Downs, and Stouffer Place.
KU Parking & Transit has the latest updates.

The biggest change (literally) is the new Stouffer Place Apartments. Spacious, furnished, apartments with tons of amenities, lots of privacy with private bedroom and private bathroom, and location, location, location. Apartments are great options for both upperclass and transfer students and there is a new alcohol policy for 21-year-old apartment residents.

Students who work part time tend to get better grades and manage their time better (truth!) You can apply now and start your job when you arrive on campus. Apply to KU Student Housing. And KU Dining Services also has convenient part-time positions.

Finally, check out the August move-in information. Before you leave home, print your move-in route map and parking pass, and confirm your arrival time.

Can’t wait to see you in August and Rock Chalk!
