LAWRENCE — University of Kansas employees and the Lawrence community should anticipate heavy traffic around 15th and Iowa streets Thursday, Aug. 22, for the primary move-in day for student housing residents. An early move-in day for band, sorority recruitment and other residents will affect the same areas listed below. Early move-in is planned for Sunday, Aug. 18.  

Traffic around Daisy Hill is expected to be heaviest from about 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. The following intersections are expected to be especially busy:

There may also be increased traffic at:

  • 11th and Louisiana streets, location of GSP and Corbin residence halls.
  • 19th Street at both Ousdahl Road and Ellis Drive, which are the entrances for Downs Residence Hall and Stouffer Place apartments.

Maps of each area, which were emailed to incoming residents and their families, can be found at the KU Student Housing website.

For those who work in KU’s West District, expect cars traveling north on Constant Avenue toward Irving Hill Road. West District employees should be able to park in their regular parking lots.
