K Teams

Welcome, Wildcats!


K Teams

We know from experience that coming to college can be overwhelming as you are meeting new people and finding your way around campus. To help ease the transition, we have recruited more than 200 of UK’s best student leaders to assist you with your first semester on campus. These students are members of K Crew, and they will be helping you and the other new students on your K Team, a group of approximately 25 new students, throughout K Week. You will attend several K Week events with your K Team, so don’t worry about going to events alone or finding your way around by yourself.


How are K Teams Assigned?

In an effort to help you start building relationships early with the people you will be living with/near, K Teams are assigned based on where you will be living. If you are living on campus, you will be placed on a K Team with neighbors, roommates, and other students from your residence hall. If you will be living off campus, you will be in a K Team with other students who live in your neighborhood or surrounding areas.


What is My K Team Number?

K Teams are assigned in August and announced a few days before K Week begins. You will be able to find your K Team number by downloading the K Week mobile app (download UK Guides in your app store and click on the K Week guide; you can also find the app online here) and searching for your residence hall room number or off-campus zip code. 

If your room number has not been assigned to a K Team on the mobile app, join your roommate's K Team or a K Team from their hall. 

When do K Teams Meet?

New students will meet with their K Team and assigned K Crew leader at least three times during K Week. The full schedule will be published on the K Week mobile app on the evening of August 18, right before K Week begins.



All K Week events are on UK’s campus. During K Week (August 19-22), free parking is available in the Periphery (K) Lots at Kroger Field and in Cornerstone Garage (PS #5). In addition, pay-by-the-hour visitor lots and structures are located at the Gatton Student Center, William T. Young Library, and the Sports Center Garage (PS #7). All other campus lots and structures will be restricted to UK parking permit holders. 

On-campus bus transportation will be available on the Blue and White routes, which can be tracked using the TransLoc app (uky.transloc.com). 


Stay Hydrated!

August in Lexington can be on the warmer side. Be sure to stay hydrated while you are out and about for K Week. UK has provided many filtered water refilling stations on campus. To see a map of all the water refilling stations, visit http://bit.ly/UKWaterRefillingStations.
