You can apply for campus housing as soon as you are admitted to the University. Once you are assigned a KU email and password, you can complete the online housing application. The application requires you to pay a $250 non-refundable application fee as one of the first steps of the application. Upon completion, you will receive an email confirmation; if you don’t, contact the Office of Student Living immediately. If you do not have access to a computer, contact the Office of Student Living at 561-681-7958.

NOTE: Fall applications are for the entire academic year.

You will receive your room assignment once you have completed the room selection process of the online application.

Student’s who submit housing applications after July 1st will receive their room assignments on a first come first serve basis.

We offer a roommate matching program in the Housing Application Portal. It helps you to find other students you might be compatible with and allows you to communicate with them within the system. Roommate selections must be mutual.

At the beginning of the semester, roommates have the opportunity to sit down with their RA and discuss expectations in the room and establish a Roommate Agreement. It is important to fully engage in this conversation and give serious thought to your expectations and clearly communicate them. If issues arise, your RA is your best resource.

Residence halls are co-ed housing both males and females and the rooms are gender-specific.

There are a limited number of single rooms that are reserved for students with medical needs. Due to the high capacity of the building singles are not available at this time.

Incoming freshmen and Sophomores are required to live on campus and are encouraged do to so. Life in a residence hall is more than just a place to sleep and study; it is about making new friends, building relationships, and being part of a caring and diverse community. It is also an opportunity to learn more about yourself, make informed decisions, manage your time effectively, and succeed academically.

We do not have halls designated to class standings. We do try to place first year students together in the same rooms.

Generally, if this is the first semester you have dropped below 12 credits, you will receive a letter reminding you of our policy of housing full-time students. This letter will also refer you to campus resources that might be helpful such as Academic Advising. If you are dropping below 12 credits for a second consecutive semester, you will need to meet with your Advisor to review your situation more closely.

  • What items will you share and who will bring them (TV, microwave, video game system, etc.)?
  • Do you want to purchase and split the cost (bottled water, refrigerator rental, etc.)?
  • Do you have any dietary concerns you need to discuss before you arrive?
