Wichita State University now confirms what Have You Heard? reported this spring and, really, just about everyone on campus already knew.
Starbucks is building a new full-service store, which will be the first retail operation at the Innovation Campus.
“It’s going to be great for faculty, staff and students already here and will be a draw for the greater Wichita community,” said Emily Patterson, WSU director of facilities planning, in a release.
The release said Starbucks will be 2,000 square feet and be located north of the Woodman Alumni Center, which is near 21st Street and Mike Oatman Drive.

Along with a drive-through, Starbucks will have outdoor seating at a large plaza next to the business.
Currently, there are some Starbucks specialty drinks available at the GroundHouse at Shocker Hall and at the Rhatigan Student Center, but there’s not a full line at either place.
Look for the new Starbucks to open no later than early spring.
