Hall Opening & Closing Dates

The University of Kentucky’s main campus is closed on Friday, January 7 but student housing move-in remains open and operational. Our crews will work diligently to ensure all paths and roads are as clear as possible so our students can move in as planned beginning at 9 a.m.

Below are some important dates and reminders about move-in and move-out.  Also, please remember that most residence halls will be closed during the holiday breaks and therefore it is important to take home any necessary items. The following halls are open during the break: Blazer, Boyd, Johnson, University Flats, Woodland Glen 4, and Wildcat Coal Lodge.

Residence Hall Closing/Opening Information regarding the Holidays:

Winter Break:

Students currently living in a residence hall that is scheduled to close for winter break will need to leave their residence hall the same day as their last final or no later than noon on Saturday, December 18. Students will not be able to stay beyond that day and time. Should you need to be granted an exception and stay beyond December 18, please contact your Resident Director.

Residents will only need to take home items they will need during the break, as well as any valuables. You do not need to move out all belongings.  Please note that you will not be able to get into the halls once they close, so it is important to take everything you will need during the break.

Students should schedule a move-out appointment no later than 24 hours after their last final.  Students may sign up for a move-out appointment starting November 15.  Here are the instructions on how to set those appointments up:

 

  • Go to myUK (myUK.uky.edu)
  • Select Student Services
  • Select My Info

Please follow these steps to schedule your move-in appointment:

When students return from the break, they will need to check-in at the front desk. This is to ensure they have checked in for the spring semester.

Residents for the spring 2022 semester must move into the hall by the first day of classes, Monday, January 10. If you are not able to move in by that time, please call the front desk of your hall or email the Campus Housing Office to make sure your space is held.

 

Each student may bring up to two people to assist with move-in. If you have any questions about the hall closure or how to reapply to live on campus for the 2022-2023 academic year, visit www.uky.edu/housing or email housing@uky.edu
