Seaton Complex Revitalization

Rendering of the new Seaton Plaza

The College of Architecture, Planning and Design programs consistently rank in the Top 10 nationally and enrollment continues to grow. However, the historic Seaton Hall building, where the college is located, needs a 21st-century update to continue to providing top-quality education.

The original east wing of Seaton Hall was constructed more than 100 years ago. Kansas State University is now working on a Seaton Complex Revitalization. This will enhance the physical learning environment to meet the needs and expectations of students, faculty and alumni well into the future.
