Housing at Eastern Kentucky University is really convenient for students. Most of the residence halls are just a short walk to most classroom buildings, so students can easily roll out of bed and be on their way to class. Students rank the age of the buildings, amenities, and cleanliness of the dorms as average. However, students say that the community within the halls is good, as is the social atmosphere. There are always different things going on inside the dorms, from cookouts to video game tournaments and root beer pong. The Living and Learning Communities also do a lot to help students meet new people, and they have fun and safe things to do throughout the semester.
Some would say that the process of obtaining a room is a little complicated, but after the first year, the process gets easier and less stressful. Students get to register for their living space in late February, and there are different registration days based on class rank. The entire process can be done online. Space of the dorms is dependent on the residence hall, but students also rate this as average. Strictness of living in the dorms is seen as good by most, and students agree that it is a decent value living in on-campus housing, although some apartments can be cheaper for upperclassmen students.
