This means that students will need to arrange for early arrival if they want to stay in the residence halls prior to their official open date.

  • Housing and Student Life

    Is housing assistance available? How do students apply, and is it guaranteed?

    Students are responsible for making their own housing arrangements, however, general questions can be directed to the incoming exchange student coordinator.  The Department of Student Housing can assist with questions about on-campus housing (see contact information below).  Housing is not guaranteed, however, students may contact the Office of Study Abroad if problems arise. 

    Housing options

    Residence Halls
    Traditional dormitory-style living which typically has 2-3 students per room.  Students in residence halls are required to purchase a dining plan since there is no kitchen access.  Residence halls are located on or very close to campus and remain open during all university breaks, with the exception of Winter Break.  Students wishing to stay on-campus over Winter Break must sign up for winter break housing and pay a fee.  Learn about KU dining plan options here: http://union.ku.edu/dining-plans.  Explore on-campus housing options at: www.housing.ku.edu

    Jayhawker Towers Apartments
    Four-person and two-person apartments centrally located on campus.  Each apartment includes 2 bedrooms, a living room, full bath, and kitchenette with a stove, oven, and refrigerator.  The bedrooms are furnished with beds, desks and chairs, and closets with a dresser.  Students have the option to purchase a meal plan, but it is not required since there is kitchen access.  The buildings remain open during breaks and students living there may stay through the breaks at no additional cost.  Space has become increasingly limited in Jayhawker Towers, so students are encouraged to apply well before the application deadline if interested in living there, and even then, it may not be possible.  Learn more about Jayhawker Towers at: www.housing.ku.edu. 

    Off-Campus Accommodations
    The majority of exchange students choose to live on-campus for convenience and because it is challenging to find furnished apartments with short-term leases.  However, exchange students occasionally choose to live off-campus in apartments or shared houses.  All off-campus housing arrangements are the responsibility of the students.  One option popular with exchange students is Naismith Hall, a privately-owned residence-hall style option that is adjacent to campus.  Learn more at www.naismithhall.com. (If you are coming for just one semester, be sure to specify this with the staff to ensure a single semester contract is possible.).

     
    Learn more about available housing options and procedures for applying for housing at: www.studyabroad.ku.edu/housing


    Housing During Orientation
    During orientation, students have the option to move into their on-campus housing early for an additional nightly fee or sign up for special orientation housing elsewhere.  The latter option is highly recommended as transportation is usually provided to orientation from these locations.
