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.

The $2.8 million facility will be located east of the College of Veterinary Medicine’s Mosier Hall. It will include a soft-footing riding arena, an asphalt footing area, a 140-foot-long runway for lameness examinations, four holding stalls, a farrier services area, a radiographic imaging area and a conference room for client services, student education and outreach activities.
