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.

Double as Single Rooms

We'll 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. 

What do you want to do for next year?

Please note that Boyd Hall in the Strong Community will be closed during the 2020-2021 academic year to allow for renovations. Rooms in Strong's Putnam and Van Zile halls will still be available.

We'll again be hosting a series of info sessions at which you can ask your questions in person.
