jUNiorS

• In August, before

your senior year

in high school, visit

the housing website

to learn about the

contract process

and timeline.

• Begin making

decisions about

room type and rate.

• Plan to sign your

contract as soon as

you’re admitted. That

puts you among the

first to choose

a room.

Sign your houSing contract

after yoU’re aDmitteD,

the SooNer the better.

September 1

After you’re admitted and have your KU ID Number and KU Online ID,

go to housing.ku.edu. Follow the instructions to sign a housing contract

so you may choose a room in the spring.

Once you’ve signed a contract, you may also submit additional

materials to apply for a scholarship hall. Scholarship halls involve a

competitive selection based on academic merit and financial need.

November 1

Student Housing begins reviewing scholarship hall applications and

making offers during the last week of each month. Student Housing

continues to make offers throughout the spring.

febrUary

Returning residents are first in line to select room and roommates.

march 1 Scholarship Halls

wHat we can do for you

and less expensive than off-campus living. Studies show that

on time.

Student Housing provides staff and resources to help you

meet people. We also offer these select communities:

• Honors Communities

• Engineering Learning Community

• Center for the Creative Arts

• Scholarship Halls

wHat you can do for yourSelf

Many factors affect your living and learning experience,

including your expectations. Students who are most satisfied

with on-campus living:

• Have good relationships with student staff.

• Participate in programs and activities.

• Have respect for diversity.

Student Housing has housed Jayhawks and their

T-shirts (represented in this T-shirt sculpture)

since 1923 when we built Corbin Hall.

stUdents saY:

• “Academically, there’s a better

chance of succeeding on campus.”

• “The environment is beneficial

to learning. There’s easier access to

the University’s resources.”

• “[Housing] keeps you close

to classes and focused on the

subjects. The community is

friendly and fun, giving you

something to do when you’re

not busy studying.”


academic sUccess

Grades.

JuSt tHe factS: you’ll get better gradeS Here.

reSidential education

Social responsibility is Student Housing’s

educational priority. Students will learn academic

success skills, good decision-making about drug

and alcohol use, self-advocacy, communication

through conflict, living in a diverse community,

and involvement and connection to KU.

By living in a residence or scholarship hall,

Jayhawks will demonstrate personal responsibility

for themselves, contribute to their community and

connect to the ever-changing global community.

academic SucceSS

On-campus residents get better grades than

students in other living environments. More

than 7 percent of on-campus residents earned

a 4.0 grade-point average during the last three

years. On-campus students also posted an overall

grade-point average of 3.09 compared to 2.89

for off-campus students. That’s in part because of

trained staff, study groups, and upperclass mentors.

academic retention

Better grades mean better retention. On-campus

housing residents progress toward graduation at

a 10 percent higher rate than off-campus students.

Graduating in four years is a KU standard

of excellence.

academic Support

We take the extra step to help you reach goals:

• Internet is included in your housing rate.

Wireless is available throughout the hall and

wired Internet is also available in individual

rooms. You may connect four devices at a

speed of 10 megabits per second, or upgrade

your speed and number of devices for

additional cost. Learn more at myresnet.com.

• Study lounges are in every hall and classrooms

are featured in GSP and Templin residence halls.

Writing Center and other tutoring services are

available where you live. KU’s new residence

halls opening in August 2015 will feature

academic spaces.

• Print stations are provided in each hall.

• Learning communities allow students to live and

learn from others with the same academic interests.

Learn more: firstyear.ku.edu/communities.

• Resident Assistants will develop an academic

success plan with each resident. They’ll also set

up academic “check-ins” throughout the

semester to help residents reach their goals.


Ku HaS eigHt reSidence HallS

Halls are close enough you can roll out of bed and get to class in minutes. Each wing is home to about

30 students from freshmen through seniors. Plans are to build two new buildings to join the Daisy Hill

residence halls. The halls will form a distinctive freshman-focused quadrangle that share a beautifully

landscaped space and open in 2015.

Creative fUndinG.

Selection favorS tHoSe witH financial need.

you’d be a great fit for a ScHolarSHip Hall if:

• You’re a first-generation college student and diversity, collaboration, and a small community

are important to you.

• You take your college success seriously and welcome “student success” meetings to plan your

academic program with graduate student mentors.

• You see yourself as a future KU campus leader.

• You’re looking for creative ways to fund your college living expenses.

The “scholarship” is a lower housing rate because everyone helps with four to six hours of weekly

duties, such as cooking or cleaning for the 50-person community. It’s such a close-knit community

that many students live here for four years.

This home at 1346 Louisiana Street was

bequeathed to KU in 2002. It was restored

as Crawford Community Center to serve

the surrounding scholarship halls.

advantages

Why kU?

on-campuS living offerS Huge advantageS!

on-campuS HouSing provideS:

• One convenient bill. The charge appears on your

KU e-bill each semester.

• Affordability. KU residence hall rates are nearly $2,000

less per year than the national average for public schools,

according to the College Board.

• Convenient contracts. If you graduate mid-year,

for instance, we’ll adjust your contract.

• Events and activities. We’ll help you feel

connected and engaged in the life of the university.

• Options. The variety of options (traditional rooms, suites,

scholarship halls, apartments) allow you to increase your

independence during your four-year college career without

losing the convenience and community.

• Upperclass communities. We offer special incentives

for returning residents.

• Location, location, location. On-campus housing

features a variety of study spaces for individual and

group work.

• Smaller carbon footprint. Living cooperatively in

a larger environment is ecologically sustainable. And you

don’t need a car — you can bike, walk or take a bus

to class.

• A green environment. Student housing reuses, reduces

and recycles. We buy energy-saving appliances and

equipment, energy-efficient windows, furniture made from

post-consumer materials, and sustainable wood products.

off-campuS HouSing meanS:

• Separate bills for gas, electricity, water, cable

and Internet.

• Security deposits for rent and utilities.

• Grocery shopping, preparing food, washing

dishes and cleaning up.

• Needing a car and parking pass to get to

class, libraries or tutoring.

• According to one national financial

author, the average college student spends

$5,000 more each year to live off campus.
