About Topeka

Capitol Building and Kuehen Bell TowerTopeka, our capital city, is home to more than 127,000 people and a great variety of things to do. Shopping, dining, the arts, historical museums, the public library and state resources like the Kansas Center for the Book make our city vibrant.

And we’re not the only ones who think so. Topeka was named in 2010 by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine one of the 10 Best Cities for the Next Decade.

Washburn University contributes immensely to the richness of life here. Many campus events, from concerts to lectures are free and open to the public. Others, such as plays and the Ichabod and Lady Blues athletic contests draw great crowds for just the price of a ticket.

And because more than 7,300 students attend the university and more than 1,200 individuals work on campus, Washburn also contributes to the strong local economy.
