Housing and Community Services

More than 6,000 students call the K-State campus home. Why? This "home away from home" meets more than the basic needs of students living with us — we provide affordable, safe and engaging accommodations for our residents, while finding unique ways to support them in their academic pursuits. We've worked hard to create an environment that fosters diversity, leadership, academic success and personal growth.

Housing and Dining Services offers:

Three dining centers, ten residence halls, a female leadership/scholarship house, an honors house and a large apartment community that provide many opportunities to meet new friends and be part of a dynamic and supportive community

An award-winning dining program that offers several meal plans and menu options.

Many retail establishments, including convenience stores, a restaurant, a bakery and a coffee shop.

Fun activities and leadership programs that help students get involved and stay connected.

A student success center where students can get free tutoring, computer/printer access and more.

Sexuality and Gender Identity Community

K-State respects a student's right to choose the appropriate housing option that best fits their personal identity. Working with the LGBT Resource Center and Housing and Dining Services, options for those of minoritized sexuality or gender identities can help to make a student's campus living experience an open and affirming experience. Multiple options are available in our Housing facilities and the Resource Center and Housing and Dining can discuss options with students and their families. Please contact the LGBT Resource Center for more information.

K-State CAT Communities

K-State CAT Communities are designed around student interests and offer mentoring from a professor and an advanced undergraduate Learning Assistant who shares the students' interests. They are an ideal place for students to meet each other and to study together.  Our CAT Communities offer options that reflect student’s sexuality and gender identity in addition to more academic interests.

For the 2017-2018 academic year students have the additional options of the Gender, Sexuality and Pop Culture CAT Community and the LGBTQ CAT Community. For more information on these opportunities please explore the K-State First here.
