What is a scholarship hall?

KU has 12 cooperative living halls right in the heart of main campus. The “scholarship” is a lower housing rate because the 50 residents in each hall complete four to six hours of household duties each week, such as cooking or cleaning. You’ll live, study, eat, play and help build traditions. You’ll be a “schol haller” — proud to be part of your community’s diversity and the KU scholarship halls.

Any prospective or current undergraduate student may enter this competitive selection process, based on financial need academic merit and essays.
