Overman Student Center just steps away

One of the best things about living on campus is ... living on campus! All of Pittsburg State's residence halls are within walking distance of the incredible Overman Student Center. The living room of the university, the Overman Student Center offers you access to amazing food at the Gorilla Crossing, Einstein's Bagels or Wholly Habeneros. You can enjoy live entertainment at the U-Club, listen to amazing speakers in the Crimson and Gold Ballroom, watch a movie in the mini-movie theater, shop for the latest Pitt State gear in the Barnes & Noble bookstore or just relax with your friends in one of our the many study areas.

The Overman Student Center is also home to the Campus Activities Center and Student Government Association. There's so much to see and do and it's all just steps away when you live on campus.

Campus community 

Living on campus is about more than just having a place to sleep and hang out. It's about the experience. It's about being a part of the campus community. It's about waking up and walking to anywhere you need to be. It's about the feeling of knowing you're always around friends. It's about being here ... and living the collegiate experience.
