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.
UMKC Residential Life
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 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.
