Whether you choose to live in the Kansas City or Lawrence areas, you will find affordable accomodations with unique community amenities.
Our campus is located in Kansas City, Kansas, but we are one block from the state line and close to the historic Country Club Plaza. The Crossroads art district and downtown Kansas City, Missouri, is a short drive.
With residents at a median age of 37, Kansas City is a young city bursting with activities you wouldn’t expect for a small Midwestern town. There are tons of activities that won’t break the grad-school bank including historic neighborhoods, jazz, food culture, professional sports teams, and arts and cultural activities.
It is an amazing community for graduate students given the low cost of living, free public streetcars, access to ebikes and scooters, and affordable airfare to most regions of the U.S. given our central location.
Lawrence has a smaller population ─ more than 90,000 ─ and a college town feel. Combine city parks and miles of trails and paths with the locally owned shops and music venues of downtown Massachusetts Street, and you've got something for everyone.
On the Lawrence campus you'll have access to all the energy and excitement a college campus can provide. There are more than 600 student organizations, arts and cultural events, as well as sporting events, like Jayhawk basketball!
