Why live on campus?
Before you arrive
- Get to know your roommates
If you’re new to your future roomies, locate their contact info on the KU Housing site and reach out with a “Rock Chalk!” (“Hi,” will also do.)
- Set up your residential wifi
That way you’ll be all set on Move-In Day.
- Read the rules
Not that we think you’ll cause trouble — but it’s important to know what is and isn’t allowed in KU Student Housing.
- Request accommodations
If you require assistance or accommodations related to medical, dietary, or other personal needs, contact KU Student Housing.
Move-in promises to be one of the most exciting times of your KU career. Beyond settling in to your new campus residence, you’ll also attend your first community meeting and get to know the Jayhawks you’ll live alongside.
After you arrive
You officially live on campus now — go, you! Next up is Hawk week, a series of welcome events hosted throughout campus. You’ll attend events with your residential community, forging bonds with your fellow Jayhawks and the campus you’re now a part of.
