Information on Summer 2021 Housing is not yet available. This is last year's information to give you an idea of spaces and rates. There will likely be significant changes to these offerings for next summer.

2020 summer school housing available in one of three apartment complexes

KU Student Housing will be offering housing to KU students who remain in Lawrence during the 2020 summer semester. In a change from previous years, all KU students are eligible for summer housing, even if they are not enrolled in summer school classes.

Hall procedures will be different for summer due to COVID-19: Based on current guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE), new processes include:

  • No gathering of groups in floor lobbies and other common area spaces.
  • No guests will be permitted, as the Student Housing guest policy will be suspended during this time.
  • Recreational equipment such as pool or ping pong tables will not be allowed to be used.
  • Recreational spaces like fitness rooms, music rooms, and study rooms will not be available for use. 
  • Maintain a distance of six feet from others and limit interaction in spaces such as community bathrooms and laundry rooms. Residents will be expected to practice social distancing, which has been shown to slow a disease outbreak. This means reducing the number of times and places people gather in large numbers.

However, if a student arrives at KU after the term has started, or chooses to move out before the term ends, charges will be prorated based on a daily rate. The prorated charge is calculated once the resident's check-out process is completed and key returned.
