Upper-Class Housing

Campus Housing has several options that offer a wide variety of living spaces and price points for upper class students. (returning residents, transfer students, and families)  Availability includes suites within our Living Learning Communities, a limited number of apartments in Bettie Johnson Hall and University Tower Apartments, and a new apartment-style facility called University Pointe. Upper class students also have the choice to live in one of our affiliated properties near campus or in an unaffiliated off-campus apartment.

Getting Started:

Campus Housing:

  • Space for returning students with 9-month leases is limited and will be located in our apartment-style residence halls or our Living Learning and Theme Communities.
  • Review the eligibility and enrollment processes for the Living Learning and Theme Communities and remember that you will need to apply to live in these communities.
  • The application to live on campus next year will open in late January.

University Pointe:

  • University Pointe provides upper-class apartment style housing. The units are 4-bedroom, 4-bath configurations and require a 12-month lease. The new building is located on Fourth Street across from the student recreation center, and is next to sorority and fraternity row.
  • The leasing trailer is currently located between Kurz Hall and Bettie Johnson Hall.

Educational Resources for Independent Living:

    • Public landlord/tenant laws are in place and utilized by the community.
    • Rules within the apartment are primarily concerned with safety and care of the community; social rules are primarily up to the residents.
    • Roommate conflicts are left to the residents to work out, not the community staff.
    • As a renting tenant, you have the expectation to be provided a safe and secure environment.  We recommend you read more on our Tenant Rights and Responsibilities page.






Not Affiliated Off Campus

We recognize that our on campus and affiliated housing options may not be the best fit for all students.  While first year students do have a live on policy, all other students may choose to live within the campus community or outside of it.  If we are unable to meet your specific needs, you can visit our off-campus site to view other apartments*.

Off-Campus Housing

*The Off Campus Housing site will also contain information on affiliated communities.  Look for the UofL Affiliated logo to identify those properties.
