At the University of Kentucky, we care about the well-being of all students. We know that you face many opportunities and challenges as you navigate campus life. To support your well-being as a student and to strengthen the overall campus community, UK offers a variety of prevention initiatives including Haven, an online violence prevention curriculum.

To ensure that all students receive vital information about interpersonal violence including options, resources, policies, and laws, ALL INCOMING STUDENTS, regardless of year or program are required to complete Haven. The deadline to complete part 1 is August 17th. About 45 days after completing part 1, you will receive an email prompting you to complete part 2 by October 19th. The program must be completed in a timely manner to avoid a HOLD on your student account. Students who do not complete the program will have an academic hold placed on their account and will not be able to register for the coming semester or until the training has been completed.

Why do I have to take Haven?

We believe this program will both provide useful information to students and help us shape a safer campus community.  Federal law requires that colleges and universities make students aware of policies and resources related to sexual assault and other forms of interpersonal violence. UK has chosen Haven as a tool to ensure students receive this information.

Can my advisor remove my hold?

If you did not complete part 1 by the deadline above, a hold will be placed on your account. VIP staff check the status of student completion daily and remove holds by the end of the following business day. Advisors are not authorized to remove these holds.

Will my information be private?

Please note the courses may include surveys to help personalize your experience and measure your attitudes and behaviors. All survey responses are confidential; the school will only receive information about the student body as a whole and will never see any individual student's answers.

Is this program only at UK?

UK has partnered with EverFi, whose mission is to help students address critical life skills such as alcohol abuse prevention, sexual assault prevention and financial literacy, in high schools and higher education institutions across the country. Each year over half amillion students complete these courses. Recognized nationally for its effectiveness, Haven uses the latest prevention techniques and science-based research to educate students about the impact of sexual violence.

What if I have more questions?

If you have an academic hold, questions about the program or problems accessing the course, please contact us at or 859-257-2884.
