Specialty Apartments for Visiting Scholars

Graduate & Family Housing offers a small selection of apartments for rent to visiting scholars, visiting researchers, and others visiting the University on a short-term basis (up to six months) for academic or research purposes. Options include studio one-bedroom, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units. The apartments are furnished to include bedding and linens, cookware, dishes, and eating utensils. Starter supplies of “consumable” products such as toilet paper, dishwashing liquid, and laundry detergent are provided at move-in; we do not replace consumable items during visitor’s stay.


The University restricts applicants for short-term housing to the following:

  • Visiting scholars, visiting scientists, visiting researchers
  • Faculty in transition
  • Other short-term visitors with an academic purpose

Please pay the fee online at the Graduate & Family Housing Online Payments link.  Should your card decline please write us at ukapthousing@uky.edu.
