Building offices


This $3.3-million building project ended in 1980, funded entirely by student fees. The building's namesake is Chester E. (Chet) Peters, who was the only person in K-State history to hold the title of Vice President for Student Affairs. His involvement was key in completing the Recreation Complex. A 1995 expansion and renovation almost doubled the facility's size at a cost of $8.2 million. On November 13, 2007, K-State students voted yes for a student activity fee to fund an expansion and renovation of the complex. The addition to the Peters Recreation Complex will include an additional 10,000 square feet for cardio and weight rooms, an extension of the running track, multi-activity courts, lounges, mind/body studios, and more. Construction began in fall 2010 and is expected to be completed in 2012.
