Campus, Dining and Residence Hall FAQs
Students should avoid travel and not return to reside in the residence halls at this time if at all possible. For students who do not have other housing options, you are eligible to stay in the residence halls; if so, please contact the residence director on-call phone at (502) 352-5447 to make necessary arrangements.
Kentucky State is asking students to NOT return and move out of the residence halls at this time.
We are encouraging students to not travel to campus for health and safety reasons, yet if you must obtain items from the residence halls, you are asked to call the resident director on-call number at (502) 352-5447 first to make arrangements.
At Kentucky State University, housing includes a meal plan. All students and families should be assured that Kentucky State University will credit all student accounts 25 percent for any paid housing and unused meal plans. Student’s whose housing is not covered by institutional aid will receive a 25 percent refund.
Any credit on student accounts will be applied toward any outstanding university balance and if applicable, a refund will be processed and mailed to the student’s address on file.
Typically, refunds are processed in about two to three weeks but there may be delays. Students will receive up-to-date notifications via their Kentucky State University email accounts.
