On Campus

It is HIGHLY recommended that you make housing reservations before coming to Kansas City! PLEASE NOTE: Admission to the university does not guarantee that you will receive university housing. Students are not required to live on campus. You are responsible for arranging your own housing. UMKC is not responsible for your housing location or situation.

Although we highly recommend that you have your housing completely situated before arriving in Kansas City, you may need a few nights at a hotel before your arrangements are finalized. Be sure to mention that you are a UMKC student to get a special rate. The rates and rooms are subject to availability.

Homestead suites

Homestead Suites because it offers a special UMKC rate. It is close to campus (1.5 miles) and it is conveniently located right across from the Country Club Plaza where you can find many great restaurants and shopping. It might be best to call or email to get the UMKC rate - online booking will not show this offer.
