Your Union Renovation
The "Your Union" campaign began when K-State students recognized the need for major improvements to our aging Student Union.
Originally built in 1956, the K-State Student Union has been an important part of campus life founded by students, for students. With input from the student body and an outside consulting group (ASG Architects), the Student Governing Association has worked to develop a solution that will address the Union’s structural deficiencies as well as the needs of a growing student body.
The result? A $25 million renovation plan for the Union, to be funded by a flat $20/semester increase in the student privilege fee beginning fall 2014, for students taking classes on the Manhattan campus. In April 2013, the student body voted to approve the project.
The renovation project will feature:
- a new south facade with windows
- up-to-date retail areas
- collaborative student lounge space
- consolidated student activities offices
- enhanced dining services with sports pub and expanded coffee house
- an innovate tech lounge
The renovation is expected to start the fall of 2015 and the Union will remain open during the renovation, although certain areas will be closed while under renovation.
