  • Home Sweet Home Live where you learn Housing • Residence Life • Living and Learning Programs
  • Welcome to your UK Home We know that offering students multiple and rich opportunities to connect to campus life, in and out of the classroom, greatly enhances their academic success, especially in the first year of college. Students who live on campus earn higher GPAs, are more likely to develop close friendships and are more successful at adjusting to the demands of college.
