Application Fee

Pay the $50 non-refundable housing application fee. You will be taken to another website for this.

Living Learning Program (LLP)

The Early Action Track deadline to apply for the LLP is February 15. If you are in the Regular Decision Track, you will need to complete the LLP section of the application by May 1. You have the option to apply for three LLP options. Keep in mind your acceptance into the LLP will determine your room assignment, as each community resides in a specific residence hall and your roommate will be a member of the same community as well. If you’re not interested, please select “No Preference” for all three preferences.

Housing Preferences

Select your preferences for room type and area of campus. Your preferences will be taken into consideration, however, housing assignments are based on availability and application completion date.

Dining Plan

Explore the dining plan options and choose the best fit for you. If a dining plan is not selected by July 22, 2018, you will automatically be assigned to the “All Access White” plan.

Find A Roommate

This section simply asks if you would like to be included in search results for others who may be looking for a roommate.

Roommate Requests & Confirmations

Request up to three roommate preferences if you have any. The student that you request must have an active application and have made their profile public for you to choose them. It is important to “confirm” your roommate request if you each would like to live together.

Room Selection

As a student at UK, you are able to choose the exact room that you will live in through a process on the application called Room Selection. Visit the Rooms tab in the application to begin. Returning students will begin selecting their room immediately, while incoming freshmen will choose their room in either April or May based on their application date.
