No. Students are not required to live on campus. At this time, all Freshman, Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors, and Graduate Students are welcome to choose to live on campus or off campus.
Please note that on-campus housing is in very high demand, so we recommend applying as early as possible at www.ksuhousing.com once you have been accepted to the University.
How do I apply for
All the housing applications are done on-line, so you'll
need to go to

follow instructions from there. You will also be able to
get specific community information from that website.
When do I move in ?

Where do I find the meningitis immunization information/waiver?
Please click here for the updated meningitis immunization waiver and applicable information. For general questions on immunization requirements, please visit the Health Clinic webpage.
What if I'm not
going to be there for the entire 12-month period, but I
have signed a lease?
Once you sign the lease, you have a contractual
obligation to pay for 12 months. In the event that you
have to vacate your apartment, you may find an
appropriate person to take over your lease. You must
check with the management office first to make these
arrangements. If you can't find someone to take over
your lease, you should have the management office "flag"
your account so that anyone who is looking for an
apartment could consider yours. You are
rent-responsible, however, until you find someone to
take over your lease. There is a fee associated with
re-assigning your lease to another party. For further
information about contract cancellation policies, please
contact Residence Life at 770-420-4388.
Can I drive my car
from my apartment to class?
Since you are ON campus, and spaces are needed for
commuters, you are limited to parking in the spaces
designated for residential students. Rain or shine, you
must walk to campus, just as they do on thousands of
campuses around the world. Commuter students may not
park in residential parking, either. You will be given a
sticker that will identify your vehicle as residential,
and commuters will be given stickers that identify them
as commuters. Tickets will be given, and cars may be
towed for those vehicles parked in the wrong place!
There are times when open parking is available
throughout the campus. For more information about the
times when this is the case, please visit
the Parking website.
How big is my bed?
Those students living in University Place, University
Village, and KSU Place Bldgs A-G have full size beds.
Those students living in KSU Place Bldgs 100-400, and
all University Village Suites residents have twin extra
long beds. Please see the full Move-In Checklist for more information on items that are provided, as well as items you will need to bring with you.
Is there a meal plan
along with the housing?
A dining plan is available for students in a variety of
formats at "The Commons," which opens in Fall 2009. For
more information about dining plans, visit Culinary
Services' website at
Do I have to be a
full-time student to live on campus?
Yes. All students must be enrolled and taking classes at
the time they are living on campus (12 hours
undergraduate/9 hours graduate). If you are academically
dismissed from the University, you will be asked to
vacate your apartment. If you are not taking classes
during a semester for any reason, you will be asked to
vacate your apartment. Please note, however, that you
are still responsible to fulfill your lease obligation.
Not taking classes does not mean you get out of your
contract. The only exception to this rule is during the
Summer, when students who have stayed with us during the
regular academic year are allowed to remain in their
apartments over the Summer, regardless of whether or not
they are taking classes. Exceptions to the full-time
enrollment requirement must be appealed to
Are there rules I
must follow to live on campus?
Absolutely! A violation of the Student Code of Conduct
or the Residential Code of Conduct could result in your
dismissal from housing. As with academic dismissals,
dismissals from housing related to disciplinary action
do not automatically release you from your contractual
obligation with KSU Housing. You will still have to
fulfill your lease. More information is available in the
KSU Resident Handbook.
Is housing single-sex or co-ed?
All living learning communities are co-ed within the buildings, but individual living units are single gender, even when suitemates are related. All students have private bedrooms, so shared living space is minimal. On campus housing recognizes that everyone does not classify themselves along strict lines of gender. With respect to this diversity, special arrangements are available as needed and require authorization from the Director of Housing and Residence Life or designee. Please contact the Department of Residence Life for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is summer housing
Summer housing is based on availability. Depending on
your circumstances, whether you are interested in only
staying for the summer or would like to remain in the
residence halls and establish housing for the following
academic year, the details will have to be worked out
with property management. You may contact them at
Is there a program
to find roommates for students that plan to live off
KSU does not offer an off-campus housing roommate
matching service. You are welcome to use the third party
service found on our housing website under
What is the
Residence Life Fee?
All residents pay a Residence Life fee once a year to
provide programming and community events for residential
students. The Residence Life fee also supports various
residence life functions performed by the Residents
Assistants, as well as the social components of the
living-learning communities. All residents are
encouraged to get involved in the Residence Hall
Association (RHA) or with their Community Councils and
provide input on programs and services offered and how
the fee is used. To find out how to get involved with
RHA or Community Council, contact your RA.
What if I sign a
housing contract and then I am not accepted or do not
If, prior to the Housing Contract start date, you
provide notice and proof to property management that you
will not be attending Kennesaw State University or that
you were not accepted as a student to Kennesaw State
University, you may terminate your Housing Contract. You
will, however, forfeit all fees paid.
