Kansas State University announced Saturday it is limiting campus housing operations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and state of emergency.
An email to students Saturday says students will be able to return to the residence halls to pick up medications and computers only, but prior authorization is required. Jardine Apartments will remain open with limited services available. The university is asking students who live in off-campus housing to remain away from campus communities if possible.
Students who meet the following criteria are being allowed to stay in the residence halls:
- International students who are unable to return home or find a temporary off-campus option.
- Students with existing health conditions or disabilities that would prevent travel home.
- Students with household members who are ill and have no other housing alternative.
- Students who may not be able to return home and cannot find a temporary off-campus option with other family or friends.
K-State officials say these actions don’t change the existing plan for classes starting remotely March 23.
