K-State Salina Housing and Dining

Discover your home at K-State Salina!

College Life with Jack Byrne

Living on campus has a safe and positive impact on your higher education experience. Studies show that students who live on campus have a higher GPA and are more likely to graduate. Community living combines learning with residential experiences and allows students to live away from home without worrying about monthly bills, what to make for dinner, or finding a safe, reliable space.

K-State Salina offers three residence halls for students. Harbin and Schilling halls are directly on the K-State Salina Campus and provide students an 8 minute walk - or less - to anywhere on campus!

On-campus students have the option of purchasing a weekly 14- or 19-meal plan, while off-campus students may choose from a 5-, 14- or 19-meal plan. Meal plans run from Saturday-Friday. Unused weekly meals do not carry over from week to week. All students will be required to have a K-State ID or the equivalent issued by the K-State Salina ID Center to be swiped at every meal.

Trained staff members monitor safety and security of the residence halls. Resident Assistants and Campus Security Officers make security rounds every evening to ensure the residence halls are secure. There is also a trained professional on-call 24 hours a day, should any emergency arise. The residence halls both have a card access system that enables residents to enter the buildings 24 hours a day. If your ID is lost or stolen please report this to Campus Security as soon as possible. Each hall has a telephone outside the building for your convenience to contact campus security or the RA on duty should you be locked out of your hall or room.
