Community Living

Kutztown University considers the Community Living experience to be an integral part of a student's total education. At KU, you are not just checking into a room-you are becoming part of a community.  Community living on our campus is about getting connected, and there's no better place to connect with others than in our spacious, attractive, and comfortable residence halls. 

Living in an on-campus community provides many great advantages and can enhance a student's development in the areas of: personal identity, relationship skills, thoughtful decision making, leadership qualities, and community interdependence and care. We also recognize that living in a community with one another can present unique challenges and that consideration and respect for your roommate and other residents are imperative. Housing and Residence Life staff is trained to assist residents and are available to help in emergency situations.


Living with a roommate can provide some of the most rewarding times you will have at college. First Year student assignments will be completed by early July for students that have completed the $75 housing fee payment by May 1st.  An email will be sent to your student email account regarding assignment information. We encourage you to contact your roommate over the summer to begin the process of getting to know each other, but don't feel compelled to become best friends for life with your roommate. There is nothing wrong with just being good roommates. You will find that you will have a more positive roommate experience when they get to know other people in your hall. With a little effort, you can create a roommate experience that you will remember fondly for years to come.
