UK 2021-2022 Housing Rates Approved by UK Board

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 18, 2020) University of Kentucky housing and dining rates will have a modest increase for the 2021-2022 academic year.

In its Dec. 15 meeting, the UK Board of Trustees approved the rate increase for university-constructed housing, which includes residence halls built before UK partnered with private company Greystar to construct and manage the bulk of UK’s residential beds. Rates for the Greystar-built and managed housing will increase by the same amount. 

Regular undergraduate housing rates reflect a 3% increase, while break housing and early move-in rates will increase by 3.6-3.8%. Graduate and apartment housing rates will increase by 3%, and the daily rate increase will be 2.3-3%.

All students living in undergraduate residence halls are required to purchase a dining plan with the exception of University Flats residence halls. The dining rates will also increase on an average of 3.1%.

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 four 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" three 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 five 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.
