Future Construction Projects
Kansas State University is focused on the future. With the goal of becoming a Top 50 public research university by 2025, the university is improving its current foundation and adding new facilities to keep up with the growing number of students choosing K-State.
Enrollment is consistently increasing at the 150-year-old land-grant university. Because of this growth, more housing and academic space is needed, as well as improvements to the university’s capabilities. Kansas State University is building cutting-edge facilities while maintaining its iconic heritage.
A new residence hall and dining center will help house the record-breaking number of enrolled students. The new residence hall will hold 450 beds and the dining center will serve 1,850 students.
Seaton Complex, which contains the College of Architecture, Planning and Design, will receive a revitalization to meet the needs of the growing class sizes. The revitalized complex will feature new studios, an outdoor amphitheater and more energy efficiency.
The 50-year-old K-State Student Union will receive a renovation and addition, all thanks to students who approved a $25 million project that will benefit future K-Staters. The renovation will give the Union more space and a better overall flow.
The K-State Welcome Center will provide the university a gateway with a more inviting look, while centralizing services key to incoming students. It will also feature interactive technology and customized information for students, their families and other visitors.
