For the fall of 2019, there are 100 beds reserved in UK Campus Housing for BCTC students. These spaces will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis to eligible BCTC students. As of June 1, the beds for BCTC students are full.

In order to receive an assignment, a BCTC student must:

  • Provide proof of full-time enrollment (12 or more hours in either 16-Week classes or 1st 8-Week and 2nd 8-Week classes with 75% of classes on-site) at a Cooper, Newtown, Leestown or Winchester BCTC campus
  • Email proof of full-time enrollment to ukhousing@uky.edu no later than July 21
  • Be in good standing (both academic and financial) with the University of Kentucky and Bluegrass Community and Technical College

If your classes start before the Fall Housing Contract Date, you will be charged a daily fee of $25 for each night you are on campus prior to the official University of Kentucky Move-In Date of Monday, August 19. This $25*/night fee will be added to your student account, and you will be able to pay it online or at Student Account Services. You will not be able to prepay this fee.

If you become enrolled at UK during this contract period, you must contact UK Campus Housing when switching your enrollment status.

There are additional mandatory fees that BCTC students are responsible for paying. Each semester these additional fees are assessed to the student’s account. These mandatory fees allow students access to all on campus amenities.
