Manhattan, Kan. (KSNT) – Kansas State University is offering resources to students who lost their apartments at the Founders Hill Apartment complex in Manhattan. A total of 91 residents were displaced, according to the Manhattan Fire Department. 63 of those are students, according to Assistance Vice President, Heather Reed.
Multiple school organizations including the Office of Student Life, Housing and Dining Services, International Student and Scholar Services, and Student Financial Aid, held a meeting Tuesday for residents at the K-State Student Union to list potential housing and financial options.
Each students’ case is different but some students are living at university dormitories temporarily until they find a permanent place, whether that is on or off campus. The Red Cross is also assisting students with disaster needs.
The fire caused $4 million worth of damage.
If you are a student who needs assistance, be sure to contact the Office of Student Life. You can reach them at 785-532-6432.
For those who aren’t students, call The American Red Cross at (785) 234-0568.
