Living in Lawrence
Lawrence boasts art galleries, museums, performance halls, global cuisine, lakes, trails, Division I athletics and proximity to Topeka and Kansas City. It's laid-back living in a cosmopolitan Midwest community. The University of Kansas lies at the center of the community and infuses an already vibrant city with vitality and diversity. Lawrence is routinely ranked among the best college towns in America.
Most students live off campus; apartments and rental homes are available throughout the city. On-campus housing is also available. For married students and single parents, KU maintains Stouffer Place, an apartment complex near the law school. Law students may also live in any KU residence hall or in Jayhawker Towers, an apartment complex for unmarried students across the street from Green Hall.
Many law students move to Lawrence with their families, and their spouses need to find work. The University of Kansas and Lawrence Public Schools are two of the largest employers in town. But there are plenty of other options as well, including commuting to jobs in nearby Topeka (the state capital) and Kansas City.
