Sports and recreation

Regular physical activity not only keeps you healthy and happy, but can be a lot of fun. Kansas State University offers many ways to stay in shape, learn a new sport or simply cheer as loud as possible. 

Recreation center

  • Manhattan campus: The recently renovated Chester E. Peters Recreation Complex on the Manhattan campus offers 10,000 of weight and fitness area, as well as indoor tracks, basketball courts and more. More than 5,000 people use the rec complex every day.
  • Polytechnic campus: The Student Life Center offers many of the same amenities in Salina. 

Club sports

Compete with teams from other universities on nonvarsity club teams. K-State is home to nearly 30 club teams, including everything from dodgeball to water polo.

Intramural sports

Play sports you enjoy on campus without the pressure of varsity sports. K-State's intramural program hosts more than 60 individual, dual and team sports. Competition is divided into men's, women's, co-rec and living group divisions.

K-State athletics

Paint yourself purple on the sidelines of Bill Snyder Family Stadium, or cheer on the Wildcats in Bramlage Coliseum or Ahearn Field House. You'll love the excitement of K-State's varsity sports.
