The 2020s


Starting off the decade with the COVID-19 pandemic, the K-State Student Union provides a valuable connection to services, space, technology, food and resources for students. Your Union is more than mortar and bricks; it's the heartbeat of K-State. It's the campus living room, where students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends gather and form lasting memories. Whether hanging out with friends, seeing a notable speaker or comedian, attending meetings, enjoying an art exhibit or catching a quick nap between classes, the Union is a welcoming place for all.
