Housing and Dining Services

Welcome To Some of the Best Campus Living in the Nation! 

Once again our efforts have landed our housing and dining services in the top 20 nationwide! In the Princeton Review's "The Best 386 Colleges," K-State's campus food was ranked No. 13 and our residence halls No. 20. Thanks to all who completed the survey, and congrats to our phenomenal, hardworking staff! 

As always, we're committed to providing a positive experience that enhances your education and connects you to the university. As you can imagine, the COVID-19 pandemic has challenged us to find new ways to provide this experience while safeguarding the health of our residents and staff. Like all campus communities this fall, we've had to make some changes to our policies and procedures to mitigate the potential spread of COVID-19, but our overall goal remains the same — to give you a great place to rest and refuel in order to do your best academically.

Visit our COVID-19 Updates page to learn more about the changes we've made, and as always, contact your student living or dining staff with any questions or needs you may have.

Residence Hall Handbook and Calendar

The Residence Hall Handbook and Jardine Apartments Handbook include important policies and procedures, including specific changes related to COVID-19. Residents are responsible for adhering to these rules. The handbooks also contain an updated calendar of important dates for on-campus residents. 

Dining on Campus

Dining Services has made significant changes to our operating procedures in an effort to keep our residents fed, and safe! Visit our Dining Services COVID-19 Updates Page for details. To learn more about your options at our dining centers and retail locations, check out our Campus Dining Guide. It includes maps, menu links, videos and more to help you familiarize yourself with our services.

Help us keep things moving at the dining centers by deciding what you want before you arrive. Scan one of the QR codes posted outside the dining centers and around HDS locations to view the menu, and be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook for real time updates to line changes.
