Housing and Dining: The Taste of KU

For many students, the first year in college is a particularly exciting one, in large part because of the residential experience. Living in the residence halls builds a healthy community through various activities, communal study spaces and shared dining.

The Hawk Shop, a convenience store located throughout campus, offers full access to snacks or complete meals any time of day that best suits your collegiate schedule. Grabbing a quick bite is available anytime hunger strikes.

While the availability of residence halls may vary from year to year, on-campus housing will be assigned based on preference and availability.
