There are, however, housing options that are near public transportation.

The UK Office for Off-Campus Student Services provides off-campus housing information solely as a courtesy.  It does not operate as a real estate or rental agency.  Inclusion of any property or rental unit on this website does not constitute, and shall not be construed or reported as (1) an endorsement or approval by the University of Kentucky of the landlord, its properties, or its business practices, or (2) a warranty or representation by the University of Kentucky as to the quality, safety or other features of such property and/or its owners or management agent(s).

The University of Kentucky does not inspect, endorse or assume any responsibility for any properties, accommodations, or other housing options or websites; and expressly disclaims any and all responsibility for any problems that may arise in connection therewith, including, but not limited to, disputes between landlords and tenants concerning such property or rental units.  All prospective tenants are encouraged to exercise their own good judgment (conduct a thorough investigation and inspection) when evaluating a prospective property, accommodation, other housing options or landlord, before making final arrangements.  

With regard to the Housing Locator site, although the University does require properties to be inspected by Code Enforcement and the Fire Department before being allowed to post on this site, neither Off-Campus Student Services nor the University of Kentucky screens landlords, and such properties and rental units are not inspected or “approved” by the University of Kentucky or the employees of Off-Campus Student Services.  The listing of accommodations does not constitute a recommendation of such facilities, nor is the accuracy of listings verified by Off-Campus Student Services or the University of Kentucky.

Off-Campus Student Services reserves the right, but does not have the obligation, to remove or edit any listing for any reason.  All listers must be aware that their listed apartments are offered in accordance with all applicable University of Kentucky, city, state, and federal statutes and regulations governing equal opportunity and non-discriminatory access to housing.  Off-Campus Student Services will not knowingly accept any listing which appears to violate these statutes and regulations.  Any question regarding Off-Campus Student Services policies should be directed to (859) 218-3840.
