Room Selection

Room Selection Update

We are getting late in the Housing selection cycle and spaces are filling up quickly. Roommate groups of four with a later selection time might not be able to find a room together. Please consider other options, such as breaking your group into two groups of two to improve your chances of living with a friend.

Room Selection Schedule

New incoming residents in residence halls and apartments are organized into group numbers for room selection. Group numbers will be emailed beginning April 5.

In the spring, students have the opportunity to select their hall, room, and bedspace for the upcoming academic year in their myKU portal.

Your exact selection date depends on which student category you belong to. To participate in room selection, contract with Housing and pay your enrollment deposit by April 1.

Keep in mind that spaces are limited. It is important to have a few options in mind in case your first pick is not available at your room selection time. If your first preference is not available, pick your next best option. Then, you can put your name on a waiting list in your myKU portal in case your first preference becomes available.

If you are an incoming freshman who has contracted with KU Student Housing by May 1, we can assure that we will have housing for you.

After room selection ends, students can still contract with Housing and will be assigned a room based on availability.
