Room Selection Schedule
Before selecting room space, residents must have applied for housing, paid the fee, and electronically signed a housing contract. Your room selection time and process depends on your student status and chosen community.
Residence Halls and Apartments
First priority for room selection is given to current residents in residence halls and apartments who are planning to return to their current space. Current residents who plan to move to a new room or hall next year are second.
New incoming residents in residence halls and apartments are organized into group numbers for room selection. Group numbers are assigned one business day after the resident submits their Housing contract.
Residents who are selected for the scholarship hall community are assigned space and will be notified when that occurs.

If you are eligible to live in the Honors Community in Lewis, or the Engineering Learning Community in Self, you may select space in that hall before all other residents. However, if you want to select space in a different hall, do that when your group number's standard selection time is active.
How do I find my group number?
- Go to the myKU portal.
- Log in with your KU Online ID and password.
- Select “Services” and click “Student Housing.”
- Select “Sign into Housing.”
- Select "Room Selection Group Number." Your group number is on that page.
