Jardine Apartments Handbook
From the Director
On behalf of Housing and Dining Services, I want to welcome you to our campus community. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for each and every resident. Our department strongly believes living on campus positively complements your educational experience outside the classroom. We have staff and services ready to assist you during the coming year.
While living with us, we encourage you to meet new friends, become involved in the numerous activities offered and enjoy the safety and convenience of on-campus living.
Derek Jackson, Director of Housing and Dining Services
The mission of Housing and Dining Services is to provide you with an affordable, safe and pleasant living environment that supports your ability to succeed at K-State. We’re confident you’ll find the apartments well-maintained and staffed with people to assist you. Our dining centers offer nutritious and satisfying meals. We also provide many social, educational and cultural programs that enhance your experience at K-State.
We encourage you to become involved in your new environment. Use this year to take some risks and try new activities. Students living in the apartments represent diverse values, backgrounds, cultures and lifestyles. We hope you’ll challenge yourself to meet those who are different. The apartments offer rich and unique opportunities to learn about yourself and others.
This handbook is an important source of information. It outlines policies and procedures that apply to life in the Jardine Apartments. You’re expected to understand and abide by these policies, as you have agreed through your apartment agreement. This handbook also contains information about your staff and Jardine’s services. Please ask a staff member if you have questions about these policies, procedures or other information in this handbook.
We will support students by engaging in collaborative relationships that encourage scholarship, community and self-discovery. By creating intentional environments of quality and care, we will enable students, faculty and staff to achieve excellence.
Statement of Inclusion
Kansas State University’s Department of Housing and Dining Services is dedicated to creating a culture that welcomes and embraces students from all backgrounds. By constructing meaningful dialogues and educational programming within our on-campus communities, we strive to engage students and staff members in the exploration and celebration of identities that align with — as well as differ from — their own. Through our continued efforts, it is our mission to enable students and staff alike to develop greater cultural competence in order to foster communities of justice and inclusive excellence.
