Non-UK Students

We do have several students from surrounding institutions such as Transylvania University (Transy), Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC),  ITT Technical Institute, Spencerian College, Strayer University, Midway University, and Georgetown College that have used our site to find housing and roommates. Anyone is welcome to search our site and to register on the Housing Locator. All non-UK community members will need to sign-up with a guest account.

How do I find a Roommate?
You can use the OCSS Housing Locator to find roommates, housing, and post a sublet. You can go to our "Roommate Finder" tab for additional instructions. 

Financial Aid:
You can visit the OCSS Know Your Budget page to learn more about finaces and renting.  

As a BCTC student, can I still get a UK Dining Meal Plan or UK Dining Flex Dollars if I do not live on-campus or attend UK?
The answer is yes, you will need to go to UK Dining.  Commuters and residents in the surrounding apartments are offered the same meal plans as students living on-campus and one additional Flex Dollar only plan.
You will have to verify that you are a student taking classes at BCTC in order to make a purchase.
-Do note that the UK Dining Plans are paid to UK Dining and not to BCTC.
