The North Campus Corridor is the area encompassed by the boundaries of North Manhattan Avenue on the east, Claflin Road on the south, College Avenue on the west and north of Kimball Avenue to include the KSU Foundation property.
In late spring 2014, Kansas State University President Kirk Schulz appointed the North Campus Corridor Master Plan Task Force. The task force's charge was to work with an outside consultant to integrate the existing master plans for various units at the university and affiliated organizations to ensure cohesiveness across all of the plans within or bordering the North Campus Corridor. These plans include those from Kansas State University, the College of Veterinary Medicine, housing and dining services, KSU Foundation and K-State Athletics.
