The UAC empowers all students to take ownership of their education by providing personalized, comprehensive academic advising in a supportive environment.

Residence Hall Advising

We have two advisors that are partnered with Oliver Hall and GSP/Corbin Halls. These advisors have office hours for scheduled appointments in the residence halls to make it more convenient for those students assigned to them that live in that residence hall. Their office hours start the 4th week of classes and ends on Stop Day. You schedule an appointment with that advisor just like scheduling a regular appointment for Strong Hall only the office location for the appointment you would choose the residence hall location.

KU Enroll-a-thon Events

Every fall and spring semester several departments collaborate together and host enrollment events in the residence halls to help students progress in getting enrolled for their future semester. The Undergraduate Advising Center, KU Student Housing, Student Account Services, Parking and Transit and Financial Aid and Scholarships all come to the residence halls during the evening to offer their services to students who may have enrollment holds on their accounts or just need help enrolling. The end goal for these events is to bring services to the students who have yet to enroll and help break down any road blocks that is preventing students from enrolling.
