UK Undergraduate Campus Housing FAQs


Who is eligible to apply? Do I have to be a certain major?

LexEngaged is open to all incoming freshmen, regardless of major. Anyone with an interest in leadership, service learning, and community engagement is encouraged to apply. The life skills gained and the sense of community are beneficial for students of any major—from biology, to architecture to business.

Can I apply before I confirm my attendance at the University?

Yes. You may apply for both housing and a living learning program even if you have not yet made a final attendance decision. In fact, you should apply for both as soon after you are admitted as possible. Applying for housing and an LLP does not obligate you to attend UK.

I have requested a specific roommate. Will my request be honored? Can I room with someone who is not in the program?

Roommate requests will be handled in the same way for LexEngaged students as for any other student. You may room with someone not in the program (space permitting), but you should encourage your desired roommate to apply to the program as well. That way you will both get to participate in and reap the benefits of this exciting opportunity!

What does it cost to be a part of Lexington Engaged?

Students in LexEngaged pay the same rates to live on campus as any other student. There are no additional program fees.


How will participating in the program affect my schedule? Will it take me longer to graduate?

The impact to your schedule will be minimal, and an academic advisor will work closely with you to make sure you are registered for the correct courses. Participating in the program will not extend the amount of time you need to graduate. In fact, with small class sizes and a close community of students and faculty to support you, you will be well on your way to graduating on time. If you have specific concerns about your course load, you should discuss them with your academic advisor.

What are the requirements for program participation beyond the connected classes?

LexEngaged students will enroll in one connected course in the fall, for 3-credit hours (this class counts toward UKCore), and a 1-credit hour course in the spring. LexEngaged offers a number of extracurricular activities that foster strong relationships between students in the program, campus and faculty. Students will have a variety of offerings to choose from such as field trips, walking tours and various other programs offered by the faculty and community leaders.
