UK Campus Housing Updated Move-In Information

LEXINGTON, Ky. (July 9, 2020) — The University of Kentucky has announced that residence hall Fall Move-In is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 8, through Sunday, Aug. 16. UK classes will begin Monday, Aug. 17.

In order to implement social distancing, all students will be required to select a move-in appointment — a recommended “window” of time for arriving at the unloading area during Fall Move-In. The purpose is to spread out the arrivals throughout the day and encourage social distancing.

Students with room assignments are currently able to select a move-in appointment time.

Follow these steps to schedule your Fall Move-In appointment:

  • Log in to myUK.
  • Go to your housing portal.
  • Select My Forms.
  • Complete required forms and select Move-In Appointment.

You will only see dates and times that are available to you based on your residence hall, Living Learning Program and any other pertinent group or organization — if applicable.

Due to COVID-19, students will be limited to two guests to assist during the move-in process. This restriction is necessary to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone during UK Campus Housing Fall Move-in. 

The university’s goal is to have all first-time, first-year students moved into their respective residence halls before K Week begins on the evening of Thursday, Aug. 13.

The University of Kentucky is increasingly the first choice for students, faculty and staff to pursue their passions and their professional goals. In the last two years, Forbes has named UK among the best employers for diversity, and INSIGHT into Diversity recognized us as a Diversity Champion three years running. UK is ranked among the top 30 campuses in the nation for LGBTQ* inclusion and safety. UK has been judged a “Great College to Work for" two years in a row, and UK is among only 22 universities in the country on Forbes' list of "America's Best Employers."  We are ranked among the top 10 percent of public institutions for research expenditures — a tangible symbol of our breadth and depth as a university focused on discovery that changes lives and communities. And our patients know and appreciate the fact that UK HealthCare has been named the state’s top hospital for four straight years. Accolades and honors are great. But they are more important for what they represent: the idea that creating a community of belonging and commitment to excellence is how we honor our mission to be not simply the University of Kentucky, but the University for Kentucky.
