Make a home for yourself on the east side of Lawrence, between Haskell Indian Nations University and Kansas University. There’s a private shuttle bus to and from Kansas University, and public buses run down West 31st Street to take you to Haskell Indian Nations University in around 15 minutes. Living close to West 31st Street, you’ve got plenty of cafés, restaurants and stores a short walk away.
On weekends, gather with friends by the pool area at The Connection at Lawrence. Dip your toes into the stunning resort-style pools, use the hot tub, or rest on a sun lounger after a week of classes. In cooler weather, sit under the cabana by the outdoor fireplace or play a game of billiards in the games room as you wait for your burger to cook on the premium barbecue grills.
To keep fit there’s a 24-hour fitness center and a volleyball and basketball court, so you’ll soon feel invigorated and ready to get back to the books. Freshen up in your private bathroom before studying in your spacious room, using the internet and printers in the business center, or working on group presentations in a study room. Drop by reception any time to chat to the friendly staff, who’ll keep you posted on weekly social events or help you with maintenance requests.
Make meals with your housemate in your apartment kitchen, which is fitted out with full-size appliances. There’s also a washer dryer so you won’t need to leave home to do your laundry.
