It is unclear what other on-campus services will be affected by the changed status.
“We will follow the principles of social distancing and limit person-to-person contact as much as possible,” a university announcement says. “In the next few days, we need to work together to understand how we will operate in this new environment. We must drastically reduce the number of employees on our campuses to help mitigate the spread of this virus.”
Previously, reports from the university indicated the union would remain open with limited operations to provide students without access to wifi the ability to work on coursework as K-State shifts all in-person courses online.
