Hays is located right off Interstate 70 halfway between Denver and Kansas City with a population of around 20,000 people. While still preserving the small town feel, Hays offers many amenities and services. It is the home of NCAA Division 2 Fort Hays State University and The Sternberg Museum. HaysMed, The University of Kansas Health System, is also part of our community. We are home to the Hays Regional Airport, which has daily flights in and out of Chicago and Denver.
