Living options

Scholarship and cooperative housing

If you're passionate about academics and dedicated to cooperative living, K-State has options tailor-made for you. Scholarship houses offer special academic and leadership programs for a close-knit group of students. In cooperative houses you'll spend a few hours per week on upkeep in exchange for low-cost room and board.

House options
  • The Smurthwaite Leadership House/Scholarship Program provides an opportunity for women to develop leadership skills in a small community. Smurthwaite residents receive a $515 savings in room-and-board costs per semester and are expected to participate in the Women's Leadership Program, house chores and telephone duty.
  • The Alpha of Clovia cooperative house for women provides sisterhood and develops leadership skills among former 4-H members and those with a similar background. Ninety percent of Clovers are required to have been 4-H members. Clovia is located one block east of K-State.
  • The Smith Scholarship House for men is located three blocks from campus and provides affordable living for male college students. Smith House is a self-sustaining, cooperative living environment. This entails each Smithie doing his part of the cooking and cleaning.
  • The Honors House is a coeducational residence hall that provides a focused living environment with an emphasis on community development and academic success. Residents must be part of the University Honors Program.
