Student life at KU
KU graduate students pursue singular disciplines, but we share a mutual mission of support and respect. In the classroom and beyond, you’ll belong to an enthusiastic and welcoming community of Jayhawks.
KU is committed to ensuring a healthy student community. We provide a number of campus support resources to help students meet everyday challenges and personal goals.
Clubs and organizations
KU offers over 100 graduate-focused clubs and organizations. Ranging from interests and hobbies to academics and advocacy, student organizations give Jayhawks a platform to raise their voices and share their enthusiasm with a like-minded community of graduate students.
International student life
One in six KU graduate students are from outside the U.S. We proudly claim an active community of international Jayhawks, and invite all to celebrate and share their cultures.
Two of our campus partners help carry forward our mission of support and engagement.
