Living options

Kansas State University is your home away from home, and the university has plenty of living options on campus and off campus. 

Residence halls

Housing and Dining Services currently offers ten residence halls. This option is a safe and affordable environment where you can meet new friends, participate in organized social activities, and roll out of bed and walk to class. 

Fraternity and sorority life

The university's fraternities and sororities surround the campus, and all chapter houses are within walking distance. Most chapters provide room and board and study facilities, along with leadership, social and intramural activities.

Scholarship houses

Scholarship houses offer academic and leadership opportunities in a small-group living atmosphere. Houses include the Smurthwaite for women, Alpha of Clovia for women and Smith for men. 

Honors House

The Honors House is a co-ed hall for students who participate in the University Honors Program.  This focused living environment places an emphasis on community development and academic success.

On-campus apartments

Jardine is a living community for students of a sophomore standing or greater, graduate students, international students, nontraditional students and families.

Off campus

You can find apartments around Manhattan to suit your living needs. Off-Campus Housing Support provides information on landlord/tenant rights and responsibilities, and the office can help resolve consumer complaints.
