At the University of Kentucky, student success is at the center of everything we do. We are a community of belonging, committed to supporting the success of each and every student.

Resources exist across campus to assist students with needs related to all four components of student success: academic success, wellness, finances, and belonging. Explore this site to learn more about these resources, or use the search function to connect with on- and off-campus offices dedicated to further supporting student success. 

Special note for students impacted by the recent tornadoes and severe weather: in addition to support we can provide through UK Basic Needs, the resources at this link may be helpful for you to explore.
