LAWRENCE — Move-in day for residence halls and scholarship halls at the University of Kansas is set for Thursday, Aug. 21.

Media are welcome to attend the event, but news vehicles will not be allowed on Daisy Hill (Irving Hill and Engel Roads) due to traffic congestion and the construction project for the two new residence halls.

For announcements related to severe weather during move-in day, tune to Kansas Public Radio at 91.5 FM.

All incoming Student Housing residents were sent a map of recommended travel routes and instructions about arriving at their community:

  • Daisy Hill Residence Halls (Templin, Lewis, Hashinger, Ellsworth and McCollum): See move-in instructions here.
  • Oliver, Corbin and GSP Residence Halls, and Scholarship Halls: See move in instructions here.
  • Move-in day for Jayhawker Towers begins 8 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 19.


"Even on an ordinary Saturday, when I am pressed for time to complete the (at times) overwhelming amount of schoolwork I have, there are moments so extraordinary — like looking up at the sun through the mosaic of colored leaves on campus — that remind me why I love what I do and why I love KU." - Sam Henkin, first-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Geography, University of Kansas #exploreKU

The University of Kansas — Shaping those who shape the world Their feats are outstanding, extraordinary — even mythical. They are known as heroes. Discoverers. Innovators. Legends. But before they began shaping the world, they were each shaped themselves on a legendary Hill known as Mount Oread. And they all share one name that you should share too: Jayhawk.
