Housing and Dining Services Announces New Residence Hall and Dining Center
In an effort to meet increasing demand for on-campus housing, the department has announced plans to add a new residence hall and dining center on the west side of campus. The $70 million project is set to conclude in time for the fall 2016 semester.
Composting Program Earns Waste Reduction Award
Over the past few years, Housing and Dining Services, the Department of Agronomy, K-State Recycling and the K-State Student Union food service have worked as a team to reduce food waste at K-State. As a result, K-State has been named a winner of the EPA's Food Recovery Challenge, which is part of the agency's WasteWise program. The award presentation will be held in the Kramer Dining Center lobby at 2 p.m. Thursday, May 9, and will be open to anyone who would like to attend.
Announcing the New K-State Honors House
Housing and Dining Services is pleased to announce that in August, students participating in the University Honors Program will have an exciting new housing option: a newly renovated coeducational residence hall known as Honors House.
The house is located a short walk west of campus, and offers resources and amenities similar to those found in the current on-campus facilities (plus a few added benefits!). In addition to free wireless Internet, free laundry, a meal plan, leadership opportunities and more, Honors House residents will enjoy the advantages of a focused living environment with an emphasis on community development and academic success.
Proximity to campus, award-winning staff and dining services, social and leadership opportunities, a recently renovated living space with large areas for group or individual study sessions ... what are you waiting for? Space is limited, so don’t procrastinate.
Questions can be directed to Andy Thompson at 785-395-3936 or the Housing and Dining
