Final vacancy update before move in

Wednesday, June 5, 2019

On-line room selection for new KU students ended on June 3 as most communities have extremely limited or no vacancies remaining. In order to pick a room in KU Student Housing, we will need to administratively assign you a space based on your specific building preferences. Please contact our office from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Friday by calling 785-864-4560, or email housing@ku.edu to receive a room assignment.

More than 3,200 students have already selected residence hall rooms in KU Student Housing. Due to demand from incoming new freshmen to live on-campus, additional space is being made available as an Expanded Housing Community for the 2019-20 school year. Spaces are still available in Expanded Housing, including rooms for roommates to live together. Learn more here

Scholarship Halls are now full. Students on the waitlist without a residence hall assignment should contact our office to select a room in a residence hall. We anticipate there will be very few cancellations in the scholarship halls between now and move-in.

For returning students or new transfer students: Spaces remain available in both Jayhawker Towers and Stouffer Place. Please contact our office to ensure that you have an Apartment Living contract and can select a space right away through the myKU portal.

If you've already selected your room but want to change your selection, please know that spaces are extremely limited for changes or swaps. Contact KU Student Housing 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Friday by calling 785-864-4560 or email housing@ku.edu to make a room change request. We will try to accommodate your request if space becomes available before August 1.
