Housing, Residence Life and Dining Services

Living on campus provides a community environment which offers far more than just having a place to study and sleep. By choosing to live on campus, you will join over 4000 students who make up our diverse vibrant residential community.  To get the most out of your four years at Kutztown University, we encourage you to fully immerse in the campus community!

Challenge yourself to meet new people, engage in the numerous opportunities for educational and personal growth, and get involved in the programs, workshops, and FUN at KU. 

TriColor Important Announcements

Due to the impending inclement weather expected for this weekend, Residence Life is opening the desks of the residence halls starting at 1pm on Friday, January 18, 2019. Resident students will be able to move back into their room/suite/apartment any time after 1pm on Friday. We are asking that students do not arrive prior to 1pm on January 18, 2019 as the Residence Life Staff is in training and the services we will be able to provide are very limited prior to that time.

Those students that decide to return should know their meal plan does not begin until 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, January 20, 2019. However, there will be Friday Dinner (5:00-6:30), Saturday Brunch (11:00-1:00) and Saturday Dinner (5:00-6:30) offered on the second floor of the South Dining Hall. There will be a $6 door charge at each meal if you decide to eat in the SDH. You may pay with dining flex, bear bucks, cash, credit or debit. Please understand it is a limited menu and the first floor of the SDH is closed as well as all other locations on-campus.

Please note that limited services will be available around campus over the weekend as well. Examples would include the Rec Center and Student Union Building will be closed until their normal Spring 2019 hours begin. Also, if we do get the snow they are calling for, our Facilities Department will need to plow the lots in order to keep them functional for students, faculty and staff. In order for this to happen you may be asked to relocate your cars to another location on campus for a period of time. If it is necessary for you to move your vehicle, announcements will be made and an email will be sent. We ask for your cooperation. Having cars left in lots will make it difficult if not impossible for them to be plowed and that will cause issues for the entire KU Community. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. Be safe in your travels. We look forward to your return.
