K-State Student Union

The K-State Student Union provides products, services, and programs to enhance the quality of life of its students, faculty, staff, alumni, and guests, with particular emphasis on students. It fosters an environment that promotes respect for all peoples and values diversity, leadership development, and the free exchange of ideas.



The Union has many options when it comes to dining. The Foodcourt, located on the first floor, features our own specialty options, as well as national brand concepts such as Panda Express, Denny's, Taco Bell, and Chick-fil-A. The Bluemont Room, a quiet, all-you-can-eat buffet style dining room, is the perfect spot for a sit-down meal. Other areas to enjoy include the Cats' Den convenience store, Caribou Coffee, Salsarita's Fresh Mexican Restaurant, and Subway. Whatever your palate craves, the Union has the answer!

ID Center/Cat Cash

The K-State ID center, located on the first floor, is where students will pick up their official K-State ID Card. Students may also choose to utilize our Cat Cash program, a debit account built into your K-State ID card. Deposits to Cat Cash, International Student ID Cards (ISIC), and Union Gift Cards are other services the ID Center provides.

Recreation Center

The Union Recreation Center, located on the lower level, has 16 bowling lanes, 13 full-size pool tables, a video arcade, and a full-swing golf simulator. We offer bowling and billiard leagues and special activities on different nights of the week: Monday is Dollar Bowl, Thursday is Thursday Starts the Weekend, Friday is Rock'It Bowl. Private parties and events can also be scheduled.
