Greetings, from the Office of Residence Life !!

Students are finally back on campus and the Fall 2017 semester has begun. Now that our students are in the residence halls, we would like to continue that welcoming spirit from move-in and transition into institutional efforts to provide students with a sense of belonging at the University of Kentucky.  

On Monday, October 9th, and Wednesday, October 11th  from 5:00 pm -7:30 pm, The Office of Residence Life is hosting an annual program called, After Office Hours. This event provides a unique opportunity for faculty and staff to assist in retention efforts by engaging with students outside of the classroom and in the residence halls. The primary goal of the program is to show students that faculty and staff are interested in meeting with them even after normal business hours to answer any questions, promote working partnerships and encourage academic success.

Our volunteers come from all areas of campus, and we would like to extend to you an opportunity to volunteer on either or both nights. Because of the timing of the program, the Office of Residence Life will provide dinner for all of our volunteers before the program begins.  In addition, because our residence halls are still a fairly new environment for many of our faculty and staff, we are also be providing tours of the residence halls for all volunteers.

If you would like to participate and volunteer for either one or both nights, please let us know by clicking on the volunteer link found below no later than  Thursday, September 21st. Once we receive your request to participate, you will receive a confirmation email, additional details about the event and your assigned residence hall location.  Thank you in advance for your consideration in participating in this special event. We hope that you will be able to join us and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions comments or concerns.
