Throughout the months of planning, design and construction, Pittsburg State University officials have referred to the newest building on campus as simply
“the University House.” With the approval of the Kansas Board of Regents on
June 20, 2012, the building now has a name: the Crossland Family University House. Informally, it will be called the Crossland House.

The regents approved naming the building for the Ivan, Sr., and Virginia Crossland family not only for their contributions as the lead donors, but also for their longstanding support of the university.

“The Crossland family and Crossland Construction Company have done so much for Pittsburg State throughout the years,” said PSU President Steve Scott. “It’s this type of private support that allows Pittsburg State to continue to thrive and serve as an academic destination of choice for students throughout the world. We’re grateful to the Crossland family and to our many private donors for their support.”
