Housing for Visiting Scholars

The most important thing to remember is that on-campus housing is not automatically reserved for visiting scholars.  The University of Kentucky cannot guarantee on-campus housing as it depends on availability but an early application can help you secure on-campus housing. 

Housing is generally not available to scholars in the month of August and September due to the volume of newly enrolled international students. Visiting scholars should check with their department or college sponsor to see if on-campus housing is available.
