It's Time to Choose Next Year's Living Space

If you're a current resident, now is the time to secure on-campus housing for the 2019-2020 academic year. You have the power to choose your own on-campus living experience.

Current residents get to choose before we open our spaces to incoming freshmen and transfers. Completing the Choose Your Experience process is the only way to take advantage of that priority, though, so view the instructions today.

Not currently living with us? The process to obtain on-campus housing at K-State is outlined on our Where Should I Live? page.
