WELCOME TO THE OFFICE OF RESIDENCE LIFE
*An Experience of A Lifetime*
As is true in any community, certain guidelines facilitate interaction, learning, growth, development and concern for others. These pages provide guidelines relating to residence hall life at Kentucky State University.
The Housing Office oversees the operation of all University-owned and operated housing facilities for students and coordinates all programs, services, and activities associated with these facilities. The office encourages personal development through in-hall programs, academic and social activities, and is responsible for ensuring that students have an atmosphere conducive to studying. Students are encouraged and supported to assume responsibilities that foster growth away from home.
An obvious advantage of the residence halls is their proximity to classroom buildings, the library, cafeteria, Student Center, gymnasium, and health center. Students in the residence halls have access to computer/study rooms, television lounges, game rooms, kitchen and laundry facilities, vending services, and telephones. Computer/study rooms are available on a 24-hour basis in each of the residence halls.
The Housing Office also ensures that the physical condition of the residence halls is maintained at an optimal level and that opportunities are provided for social interaction in the residence halls.
It is with the objective and commitment to being a residential institution that Kentucky State University requires every full-time freshman and sophomore to live on campus with the following exceptions:
Students who are veterans of at least two years of active military service;
Students who commute from the home of parents or legal guardian;
Students who are married; or
Students 21 years of age and older.
RESIDENCE HALL STAFF
All the residences are professionally staffed by Hall Managers. Within each residence hall there are persons who have been specifically selected to be of assistance and service to students. Students are encouraged to familiarize themselves with hall staff members.
The general administration of each residence hall is the responsibility of a hall manager, who coordinates the work of the resident staff, stimulates and implements the total residential education program, advises the hall government body, and provides personal assistance to students.
