    • A Message from School
    • Greetings from Manhattan, Kansas! I have worked at Kansas State University for 15 years. Let me share with you why you will love it here.

      We are part of the K-State family. This reflects the friendliness, care, and inclusion of everyone on campus. This sense of family extends to the local Manhattan community where people are friendly and helpful. As an ELP student, you are a K-State student and have access to all the campus facilities. Experienced ELP teachers, advisors, and staff will help you settle into your classes and learn about your new home.

      We have a beautiful campus with clean air, stately buildings, trees and flowers. Manhattan is a safe, small university town with strong relationships with the campus.

      You will receive excellent teaching in your English and academic classes. The ELP has been accredited by the Commission for English Language Program Accreditation since 2008. You will get an education that will set you up for success at K-State, whether your focus is English or a degree.

      I hope that you come and see how welcoming the K-State campus is and how warm and friendly the people of Manhattan are. It is a great place to call home!

    • Getting To Your School
    • From Manhattan Regional Airport:
      KSU strongly suggests flying into the Manhattan Regional Airport (MHK), located only minutes away from campus. KSU provides a free shuttle for arriving students from the airport to campus Wednesday through Friday of arrival week. It takes students to campus only. Please email if you are interested in this service.
      From Kansas City International Airport:
      The Kansas City International Airport is a much larger airport than the Manhattan Regional Airport. This option may offer greater flexibility and more arrival options. However, Kansas City is more than 200 km (130 mi) from campus and KSU does not have a pickup service available for students arriving at this airport. Transportation options from Kansas City to Manhattan will be expensive.
