Updates Regarding COVID-19

With K-State's decision to continue limited operations and online instruction through the remainder of the spring 2020 semester, residence halls and dining centers are closed. Jardine Apartments remains open, and services are available to residents. 

Housing and Dining Services is providing financial relief to residents by issuing a prorated credit for room and board. Visit our COVID-19 updates page for information about these refunds, as well as details about the services we're offering while the university is under limited operations status. 

Fall 2020 Residence Hall Update

On June 9, the university announced residence hall and dining center updates for the fall 2020 semester. These adjustments are being made to enhance student safety and mitigate the potential spread of COVID-19. Students with active residence hall contracts received an email on June 17 to further clarify the details of their housing assignment. Students must complete the necessary action steps outlined in the email to solidify their housing assignment for the fall semester.

After 3 p.m. Friday, June 26, available rooms of all types were reservable and open to all students. All changes to room selection must be completed by 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, July 1. After July 1, the Resident Portal will allow students to view their assignment information and contract terms and conditions, and cancel their contract if needed. We have extended the cancellation deadline to Aug. 1. After Aug. 1, cancellation fees will apply.

Please visit our COVID-19 Updates page for information regarding the COVID Medical Single Room Accommodation Request Process. 

On July 1, we sent an email update to residence hall students regarding move-in procedures and changes to our fall semester operating procedures. This update contains a new calendar and handbook — please read through it in its entirety.

We thank you for your patience and understanding as we make the necessary adjustments to continue providing K-State students with the accommodations and services that make our communities such a great home away from home. And as always, we're here to help. If you have questions, contact us at housing@k-state.edu or 785-532-6453.

Room Selection for the 2020-2021 Academic Year

Reminders Before You Select Your Space

While you wait for your turn to choose your room in the Resident Portal, there are many things you can do to prepare for the process.

Find a roommate. If you're still looking for a roommate, we encourage you to consider utilizing the K-State Room Sync application to find a good match.

When you identify a roommate, please remember to update your roommate preferences on your housing contract in the Resident Portal

Confirm your roommates. Review your contract in the Resident Portal to confirm that your preferred roommates have completed their contract and preferenced you as a roommate. This will ensure that you're all assigned to your selected room at the same time. Complete this worksheet to help finalize your preferences. 

Explore your options. Review the Explore Your Options worksheet to be sure you're aware of all the housing options available to you.  

Make a list of your first, second and third preferred hall and room types, reviewing the associated cost for each option, so you can make decisions quickly when your room selection time begins. 

View the residence hall rates at a glance.

Confirm with any preferred roommates which hall and room type each roommate is interested in to ensure everyone’s preference is being accommodated.
