Am I eligible for the program?
The International Village is open to all incoming freshmen and returning students regardless of major. Anyone with an interest in our world community is encouraged to apply.
Can I apply before I confirm my attendance at the University?
Yes. You may apply for both housing and a living learning program even if you have not yet made a final decision about attending UK. You are encouraged to apply for both housing and the International Village LLP as soon as possible after you are admitted. Applying for Housing and an LLP does not obligate you to attend UK.

Blazer Hall has suite-style living, with study areas, a kitchen, and multi-purpose rooms. If you are accepted into the International Village, housing in Blazer Hall is guaranteed. Blazer Hall is one of three residence halls on campus that stays open during the University breaks (Thanksgiving, winter, and spring).
What does it cost to live in The International Village?
Students in the International Village pay the same rates as any other student who would live in Blazer Hall. There are no additional program fees associated with participating in the International Village.
