    The university encourages all new K-State students to live in an organized living group, such as a residence hall. Living in a residential community provides students with a sense of belonging and an avenue for involvement. Research indicates academic achievement is enhanced by involvement. Students who choose a community-based living group are provided many opportunities for interaction with other students and university staff. Furthermore, the opportunity to participate in organized social, athletic, and educational events contributes to career success.

    K-State provides on-campus residence hall living for approximately 3,800 students and 528 apartments for student families, nontraditional, single graduate and upperclass undergraduate students.

    Residence halls
    K-State residence halls have a rich tradition of providing a living and learning environment that encourages personal growth and academic success.

    A number of lifestyle options exist, including academic and leadership cluster areas and intensive study/quiet floors. Additional information on these options is available on request. Staff members work diligently to meet the needs of all students.

    The academic-year contract is issued to a student following receipt of a residence hall application and nonrefundable application fee.

    The cost of the contract is set on an annual basis. Students may select a semester or an installment payment plan.

    Smurthwaite Leadership/ Scholarship House
    The Smurthwaite Leadership/Scholarship House is a unique program for women who would like to become active in leadership positions in student government, academic organizations, and cocurricular organizations.

    Assignment to Smurthwaite Leadership/ Scholarship House is made through a special application process. Since space is limited and assignment is not guaranteed, it is best also to go through the regular residence hall application and contract process.

    Academic initiatives
    Residence halls offer individualized academic support to residents through trained staff, programming, and faculty involvement. Computer labs, study rooms, two academic resource centers, and tutorial sessions make the residence halls a great environment for learning and academic success.

    Leadership and involvement opportunities
    The Leadership Education And Development (LEAD) program offers current and aspiring leaders the skills they need to be successful. Hall Governing Boards (HGB) and floor governments plan and implement educational, cultural, and social programs; intramural events; community service projects; and more. Judicial boards provide an opportunity for students to address one another regarding policy violations that impact the community. The Kansas State University Association of Residence Halls (ARH) works closely with hall representatives to develop and implement policies that promote respect and acceptance of all residence hall students. ARH also plans larger all-hall events.

    Jardine Apartment Complex
    Student families, nontraditional, single graduate and upperclass undergraduate students have access to one- and two-bedroom furnished and unfurnished apartments at Jardine. These apartments are adjacent to the campus. Affordable laundry facilities are available.

    The rental rate includes gas, water, and trash. There is a nonrefundable application fee due at the time of application. Assignments are made on a first-come, first-serve basis, and early application is recommended. On assignment, a deposit equivalent to one month's rent is required.

    Apartments are partially accessible for people with disabilities. Housing and Dining Services is pleased to work with students and family members to accommodate special needs.
