Residence Life

New Students

Welcome to the Office of Residence Life and Education. We’re glad you’re considering living on campus or are visiting this site as a member of our community. We work hard to provide Park students with a premier living experience.

Resident Life and Education Policies

Engage with The Honors Academy Residential Learning Community.

STEP 1: COMPLETE THE APPLICATION

Park University’s housing application will provide the Residence Life staff with your contact information and living preferences, which will be used to match you with a roommate. If you have a preferred roommate, list that person’s name on the application. Once you have your MyPark user name/password, login to MyPark to be directed to the application for housing. If you have already applied but would like to change any of your information (hall, roommate, etc.), email  reslife@park.edu.

STEP 2: HOUSING DEPOSIT

The housing deposit will hold your space on the waiting list. The deposit will be refunded when you move off campus as long as all balances are paid upon departure.

The deposit may be paid with any of the following methods:

  1. login to MyPark and select “Make a Payment” in the Student Account Tools. Be sure to include the words “Housing Deposit” in the comments section before you enter your credit card information to process the payment,
  2. by calling (816) 584-6800 and selecting Option 4,
  3. or by mailing a check to:

Office of Residence Life
Park University

Returning students do not need to pay a deposit. Housing deposits are refundable up to July 1.

STEP 3: SIGN THE HOUSING CONTRACT

The final step is to complete the Housing Contract online. Be sure to review the housing contract thoroughly before submitting. All students will be held to the terms and conditions of the contract. Communication regarding housing assignments will happen mid-summer.
