Scholarship Halls

Give us 30 seconds—we'll show you everything.
Be a part of this tradition-filled community and see how much fun we have at the Scholarship Hall Olympics.

The main office for the scholarship halls is Crawford Community Center, 1346 Louisiana.

KU has 12 scholarship halls, two co-ed halls (KK Amini and Grace Pearson), six women's halls and four men's halls.  The "scholarship" is a lower housing rate because everyone completes two to three hours of weekly duties, such as cooking or cleaning for the 50-person community. Students who want a scholarship hall should sign a contract, then fill out the additional materials for scholarship hall application. Rooms are selected by the students in a process determined by each hall. Tours are available from 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Check in for the tour at Crawford Community Center, 1346 Louisiana.

Crawford Community Center is available for current scholarship hall residents during these hours:
