Abstract: In models with Universal Extra Dimensions (UED), the mass spectrum of Kaluza-Klein partners of the Standard Model particles depends on the size of the extra dimension as well as on bulk and boundary localized higher dimensional operators and mass terms. We show that constraints from flavor physics and electroweak precision tests strongly constrain these operators, thereby predicting characteristic patterns in the Kaluza-Klein partner mass spectrum which can be searched for at the LHC.
