Kramer Dining Center: Facility Design of the Month
The June 2017 issue of Foodservice Equipment and Supplies magazine features the newly constructed Kramer Dining Center as its Facility Design of the Month.
The article, titled “Kramer Dining Center’s Home-Away-From-Home Experience,” showcases the dining center’s innovative, community-focused design. Architects, designers and representatives of K-State’s housing and dining services collaborated to create an environment that spotlights the department’s cutting-edge practices in the field of college and university food service. The team wanted those who enter Kramer to know it’s an ideal place not only to eat, but also to socialize, relax and study.
Mary Molt, associated director of housing and dining services and assistant professor of Food, Nutrition, Dietetics and Health, was quoted in the article saying “The hall supports Dining’s from-scratch production philosophy, placing an emphasis on quality food and service and providing an interactive environment in which the production and delivery of food at platforms allow students to see team members preparing food and customizing it to meet their needs.”

Important Reminders Regarding Your Housing Contract
We've just wrapped up a great year here and are already in the process of preparing for fall. Please note the following deadlines and important information.
1. The deadline to cancel your contract is June 1.
If you have decided you no longer want to live on campus at K-State, you may cancel your housing contract by completing the online cancellation form using your K-State eID and password. Your cancellation must be submitted online or postmarked by June 1, to receive a full refund of your initial contract payment. Cancellations postmarked after June 1 are subject to a $200 cancellation fee. Cancellations after Aug. 13 are subject to additional fees depending on your move-in date. See your contract for details regarding other cancellation policies and deadlines.
2. Have you selected your room for next year?
If not, log into the Resident Portal and choose from the spaces currently available.
Below your contract information, you will see a "Select Your Room" link that will allow you to view the current available inventory and select the room of your choice. The deadline to select a room is July 1. You may select a room at any time, however the sooner you select a room, the more options will be available for you to select.
Failure to select a room does not cancel the Residence Hall Contract. Residents who do not select a room by July 1 will be assigned to an open space by Housing and Dining Services staff.
If you have selected your room, please log in to the Resident Portal and confirm your assignment information. Make sure all your preferred roommates were assigned to the same room. Any changes to roommate(s) after you selected a space requires you to update your assignment in the room selection program.
3. There are still spaces available in Residential CAT Communities.
Residential CAT Communities are made up of 22 first-year students who take a group of classes together, as well as live, eat, study, and socialize near each other, too! Students in each CAT Community will live in the same hall(s), along with their Residential Learning Assistant. Learn more and/or sign up. Signing up prior to your Orientation and Enrollment date will help make the enrollment process easier and with limited spaces; the sooner you sign up the better!
4. Need to make changes to your contract preferences?
If you would like to make a change to any of your contract preferences — such as roommates, break housing, meal plan or information release — you may edit your contract in the Resident Portal on or before July 1.
