K-State Olathe Facilities Surcharge

All catering services will be subject to a 15% building usage fee. The 15% surcharge is to be charged on food and beverages only. It is not included on delivery fees, service charges, rental items and taxes. This surcharge will be reflected on the caterer’s final invoice, and is necessary to assist with costs associated with overhead, administration and maintenance.

Beer, wine and liquor use is restricted to specific event permits in compliance with the City of Olathe codes and Kansas State Liquor licenses. Alcohol can only be served at private events through a caterer holding all necessary permits, licenses and insurance. Request a listing of current licensed caterers. The client must notify K-State Olathe in advance if alcohol is being served at an event.

On-site Beverage Service

K-State assists with all of your hot and cold beverage needs for your events. Prices are based on consumption and beverages are replenished throughout your event as needed.
