Winter weather is part of living in Kansas. It is rare that the university cancels classes or closes for weather. When K-State makes inclement weather-related decisions, we first consider public safety and then the effect closing will have on our operations.
Student Access Center
Students with disabilities may obtain information and assistance from the Student Access Center (785) 532-6441. Emergency evacuation information is available on their website.
In the case of emotional/behavioral distress, students can access therapy and other supportive resources at Counseling Services, (785) 532-6927.
Student Life can provide assistance when mental health problems affect a student's academic or personal life. Contact Student Life at (785) 532-6432.
Crisis assistance is available through the Office of Student Life and many other offices on campus. The information is organized as assistance for various groups.
Safe Zone Program
K-State wants to provide a safe and equitable environment for every member of our community. The SAFE Zone program (Students, Administrators and Faculty for Equality) was created to easily identify persons, programs, and services that have made a special commitment to enhancing the quality of the K-State environment.
The SafeRide Program is to save lives and prevent injuries and damage to property by offering students and their guests a safe alternative to drunken driving and other threatening situations.
If you are ever uncomfortable walking on campus alone, dial 395-SAFE (395-7233), and an escort will meet you and walk you to another on-campus destination or up to two blocks off-campus.
"The mission of the Kansas State University Police Department is to preserve a safe campus environment where diverse social, cultural, and academic values are allowed to develop and prosper."
To assist the KSU Police Department we have developed a program called "Silent Witness". This program allows you to report crimes or suspicious activity to us without providing your identity.
