Choose Your Experience: Live in the Residence Halls

The residence halls on campus provide an ideal living experience for students who seek a more community-focused environment. Residents have direct access to dining service, academic programs and resources, on-site laundry facilities and leadership opportunities. Plus:

  • Studies confirm that students who live in a residence hall at K-State experience greater academic success.
  • Classes and other campus resources are all within walking distance.
  • The halls are locked 24 hours a day, with resident-only key-card entry.
  • Living among fellow students provides opportunities to develop lifelong friendships.
A new single room option is now available for 2017-2018. We will offer a limited number of our double residence hall rooms as singles. In other words, a "double as single" room is a traditional two-person room for only one person. In order to live in one of these rooms, students must pay an additional fee for the right to guarantee that they will not get a roommate for the academic year. Note that even if you select this option, the policies on guests and visitation are still in place. The additional per-semester cost will be $950 for rooms in Boyd, Goodnow, Haymaker, Marlatt, Moore and Putnam, and $1,050 for rooms in West Hall.
