How to Apply

Current residents interested in an immediate move to the Schol Hall community should contact Keesa Shrader at to check on available space.

We look forward to reviewing your materials for KU Scholarship Halls. As a "schol haller" you'll live, study, eat, and help build traditions that create a family atmosphere in which you'll know and care for others long after graduation. Any prospective or current undergraduate student may enter this competitive selection process.

To be eligible to apply for a scholarship hall, you will need to have already applied for Student Housing and agreed to the contract terms.

"Rolling" application deadlines

For next year's incoming students, KU Student Housing begins an early review of scholarship hall applications each Nov. 1. The last week of each month, selected residents are offered a place in the scholarship hall system. Offers continue throughout spring.

You may apply now for spring semester to live in a Scholarship Hall beginning in January 2019. There will be Scholarship Hall openings for the spring semester because students graduate, study abroad, or pursue other opportunities. If students are not chosen for a January opening, they remain on the list for consideration during the semester; however, applications do not remain active for the next academic year.
