Housing and Move-Out

Thanks to students and their families for participating in a successful move-out of the residence halls.

UK Housing now turns attention to consolidating students who needed to stay on campus for extenuating circumstances. The Housing Assignments office is working on sanitizing rooms and making housing assignments this weekend. Some students will begin moving to north campus this weekend. Some carts will be available, but no moving assistance will be provided as we practice social distancing, in alignment with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Governor Beshear.

If you have not moved out of your residence hall by 4pm on Friday, March 27, please email ukhousing@uky.edu or call 859-257-1866.

Transportation

When utilizing transportation services, please consider the following passenger recommendations:

  • Park and stride – skip the bus and walk from periphery parking areas, reducing the number of riders on the buses. This allows for more space between passengers who may need or choose to ride.
  • Leave an empty space between passengers – we are limiting occupancy on buses to half the total seating capacity, allowing for an empty seat between passengers. When waiting to board, please allow extra space between individuals.
  • Practice social distancing at bus stops – the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention recommends a distance of six (6) feet from others, when possible.
  • Limit coughing & sneezing exposure – while coughing and sneezing are not definitive signs of a communicable disease, please be respectful of your fellow passengers and avoid when possible. If not possible, please ensure you limit the spread of airborne particles by coughing or sneezing into your sleeve or a tissue.
