Special Interest Housing
Special Interest Housing (SIH) is available for student groups who require specific
housing arrangements as part of their involvement with Kennesaw State University.
Housing accommodations are done through partnerships with different programs in coordination
with the Housing team. If students are interested in living in SIH, they need to reach
out to the departments and apply via their specific process.

The ASCEND SIH is the on-campus living option for KSU CARE students who were homeless and/or
in foster care during their K-12 education. Participants must be Kennesaw State University
students who are pursuing their first bachelor's degree. They must also meet at least
one of the following criteria:
- Verified as an Unaccompanied Homeless Youth status based upon the McKinney-Vento Act
provided by their High School Homeless Liaison
- Eligible for an Education and Training Voucher (EVT) Program funded by the Division
of Family and Children Services (DFCS), Independent Living Program (ILP) of the Georgia
Foster Care Unit
- or eligibility otherwise determined by CARE Case Manager or Program Coordinator
Depending on room availability, and if the eligibility requirements above are met,
these students live together as a community so they can build stronger, hopefully
life-long, relationships with students of similar life experiences. To apply, please
complete the ASCEND Living Learning Village application.
