Travel and Accommodations
The on-campus portion of the program will be held one week in June each summer at the K-State Manhattan campus. This time spent on campus is invaluable in that it breaks the isolation that can be common found with online learning programs and creates many networking opportunities for students. These sessions provide valuable hands-on training and mentoring with nationally renowned experts. By the end of your week, you will have made connections and friendships that will last a lifetime.
There are additional expenses associated with the on-campus component of the program, including travel, parking, food, lodging, etc. Students are responsible for coordinating their own travel to and from Manhattan for the summer session, and for reserving their own lodging for their stay. Information about parking and options for lodging are listed below.
To park on campus you will need to purchase a temporary parking permit. A permit may be purchased at Parking Services or at the information booth on 17th Street near the K-State Student Union parking lot.

Residence hall housing is available as a low-cost, no-frills option, and meals may be purchased in advance or on-site. Please visit the Housing and Dining Services site for information and rates of summer guest housing and dining as well as online registration.
