The Housing Equity Fund, an effort to reduce housing costs, has partnered with two companies to offer housing for the first time.
The first, Housing Equity Properties, has been offering apartments to students since April.
The second, LITTlerville Apartment Homes, has just completed a pilot project.
“The idea of housing for low-income students in a high-quality campus community is a big one,” said Elizabeth Miller, associate dean for housing.
“Our housing program provides affordable, community-based options that students can be part of.”
“I’m a student at the University of Kentucky, and I can tell you it’s a hard situation to be in,” said student Emma Buell.
“I was able to make rent in Louisville, and it was a great experience.
But it’s hard to be able to live in a university housing program.”
Buell, who is in the third semester of her senior year, said she had to make several decisions about whether or not to move to Louisville to stay in her dorms.
“I really didn’t know what I wanted to do.
I felt like I needed a place to go,” Bueill said.
“It’s a huge issue.
I don’t think it’s fair to put students at a disadvantage.
We just don’t know how much rent to charge.”
Bucell said the program is meant to be more affordable for students who might not be able or interested in staying at their campus housing.
“It’s just so convenient for students,” Bucell added.
“We have a lot of money in our budget and it’s just not affordable to live on campus.
I’m glad that they’re doing this.”
