Special events

We hope you can join us.

Throughout the year, KU hosts on- and off-campus events that address specific student populations. The best way to be notified of upcoming events like these is to join our mailing list — if one seems like a good fit for the kind of student you are, we’ll make sure to invite you when events are scheduled.
