K-State announces limited operations for on-campus housing
Kansas State University is limiting on-campus housing operations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and state of emergency. The university also requests students who live in off-campus housing to remain away from their campus communities if possible.
Instructions were sent to students who live in residence halls today announcing the changes. Students will be able to return to the residence halls to pick up medications and computers only; prior authorization will be required. Jardine Apartments will remain open with limited services available.
Students who meet the following criteria are being allowed to stay in the residence halls:
- International students who are unable to return home or find a temporary off-campus option.
- Students with existing health conditions or disabilities that would prevent travel home.
- Students with household members who are ill and have no other housing alternative.
- Students who may not be able to return home and cannot find a temporary off-campus option with other family or friends.
These actions do not change the existing plan for students completing coursework and/or the previously announced timeline for academic activity. The university is taking these unprecedented steps in extraordinary times to protect our university and surrounding communities. Students with questions are encouraged to contact Housing and Dining at 785-532-6453. Updates can be found at k-state.edu/COVID-19.
