The $21 million, 30,000-square-foot center is the starting point for campus visits by prospective students and their families and a point of interest for all visitors to campus. Funded by private gifts, the construction of the Jayhawk Welcome Center was part of the renovation of the Adams Alumni Center, and the welcome center ties into the existing building at 1266 Oread Ave.
The center opened in 2023. It is home to Office of Admissions staffers and includes meetings rooms, a 34-foot-tall video screen, several digital displays with touchscreen technology, and a photo booth.
