Living options

Kansas State University is your home away from home, and the university has plenty of living options on campus and off campus. 

On-campus living 

Manhattan Campus: Housing and Dining Services

First year students enrolled at the Manhattan campus are required to live on-campus per the First Year Residency Requirement.  Find your fit in one of our 10 residence halls, an honors house, a scholarship house or our on-campus apartments.

Off-campus living

Fraternities and sororities
  • Fraternities and sororities surround the Manhattan campus, and all chapter houses are within walking distance.
  • Most chapters provide room and board and study facilities, along with leadership, social and intramural activities.
Scholarship houses (Other Community-Living Environment)
  • Off-campus scholarship houses offer academic and leadership opportunities in a small-group living atmosphere just like the on-campus scholarship house options.
  • Manhattan features Alpha of Clovia for women and Smith for men as off-campus options.  These two houses are other approved living options for the HDS First year residency requirement exemption.
Off-campus apartments and housing
  • If you are having an issue with your off-campus living situation, Off-Campus Housing Support is here to help.
  • The office provides information on landlord/tenant rights and responsibilities as well as support and guidance to help resolve consumer complaints.
