Incoming students guaranteed room if you contract by June 1 and select space

Monday, April 20, 2020

Incoming first-year students who are admitted to KU are guaranteed a spot in KU Student Housing if they apply by June 1 and select a space.

With room selection now complete for nearly 3,000 new students, many buildings have extremely limited or no vacancies remaining. There are currently available spaces, including completely open rooms for roommate pairs, in Hashinger Residence Hall and Stouffer Place. The best option remaining for a roommate group that prefers a suite is Stouffer Place. Learn more about Stouffer's 4- and 6-person new student community.

Based on remaining space, students who are eligible to select their room are encouraged to do so as soon as possible. Students who have not yet applied to housing are encouraged to do so right away. Students may select space one business day after submitting an application and signing the Student Housing contract. Here are instructions on how to submit an application and choose a space.

Scholarship Halls are now full. Students who applied and have not received an offer should select a residence hall room. If openings occur in scholarship halls over the summer months, KU Student Housing will make offers from the existing wait list.

For returning students or new transfer students: Spaces remain available in Stouffer Place and Jayhawker Towers. and we encourage you to apply now and choose space as early as tomorrow.
