If you’re newly admitted – and apply for KU Student Housing and agree to contract terms by May 1, 2019 – you’re guaranteed a space. The earlier you apply, the better your room selection time will be.

Here's a handy checklist:

  Apply.
The application and agreement of contract terms is open now. If you apply by May 1, you are guaranteed a space. The earlier you apply, the better your room selection time will be.

  Pay.
Pay the $50 non-refundable application fee when it appears on your KU Enroll & Pay bill. It will appear several days after your contract is submitted.

  Select.
Your group number determines your room selection time. Find your group number at myKU and find the selection schedule under the "schedule" tab below. 

  Scholarship halls.
If you wish to apply for a scholarship hall, there are additional steps.

1. Identify your room and dining choices.

Consider your options before choosing your space or before choosing your apartment. Residents who will live in residence halls must also choose a dining plan. View the rates and definition of room type. This worksheet will help as you make your decisions.

2. Sample screen shots and instructions for selecting your space.

Here are instructions you'll need if you have a specific roommate. The roommate with the lowest group number should be responsible for the room and dining plan selection for the group.
