What we believe

The office of Residence Life at Kentucky State University oversees the operation of all residence halls and coordinates all programs, services, and activities associated with these facilities.

Residence Life encourages personal development through in-hall programs, academic and social activities, and is responsible for ensuring that students have an atmosphere conducive to learning. Students are encouraged and supported to assume responsibilities that foster growth away from home.

Residence Life also ensures that the physical condition of the residence halls is maintained at an optimal level and with safety and security measures.

Living on the Hill

Our core values are:

  • Learning
  • Development
  • Student Service
  • Diversity
  • Community Living
  • Concern For Others
