North Campus Corridor

Manhattan’s North Campus Corridor (NCC) on the north edge of the K-State campus  is under design and construction with university and community partners. Facilities built in this corridor will benefit and be able to leverage the extensive resources and capabilities of Kansas State University and existing partners. Anchored by the $1.25B National BioAgro-Defense Facility and K-State’s Biosecurity Research Institute, the NCC serves as the physical epicenter of a plan that establishes Kansas, the region, and the university as the destination for the world’s food and animal health companies and global food systems-related research and educational talent.
