K-STATE'S PARKING GARAGE FULLY OPEN IN TIME FOR SPRING SEMESTER CLASSES
MANHATTAN -- Kansas State University's parking garage is fully open in time for the first day of spring semester classes Thursday, Jan. 14.
"We completed inspections yesterday to open the top floor, the elevators and the walkway to the Union," said Gary Leitnaker, assistant vice president for human resources.
"We received clearance from the state of Kansas that we have achieved 'substantial completion' and the garage is now fully open. We have plenty of room for students, faculty, staff and visitors in a convenient, covered parking garage with easy access to our K-State Student Union."
The garage includes a stairway tower on the north end of the garage; elevators; and a bridge from the parking garage to the Union.
Leitnaker said the garage has 1,385 stalls with 500 allocated to students, 400 to faculty-staff preferred and 130 to reserved stall permits. The balance for additional customers from any group and the public is 350.
"Darwin Abbott, director of parking services, and Jack Carlson and others from the Division of Facilities worked especially hard to get the garage fully open for the spring semester," Leitnaker said.
