University Trespassing Policy
Section 1: Persons not authorized in non-public areas of University Buildings. The areas of University, academic, research, public service and administrative buildings of the University used for classrooms, laboratories, faculty and staff offices, and the areas of the University student residence buildings used for student living quarters are not open to the general public. Any person not authorized to be or remain in any such building area will be deemed to be trespassing on University property, and may be cited and subject to prosecution for criminal trespass in violation of Nebraska State Law.
Section 2: Persons on University Property between the Hours of 11:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Persons who are not students, faculty, staff, tenants, licensees, agents or contractors of the University, or their employees, visitors or guest, shall not be permitted on University property between the hours of 2300 and 0600. Visitors and guests are expected to conduct themselves in a proper and lawful manner while on University property, and failure to do so may result in impositions of personal restrictions relating to their presence on University property. Specifically, the right of visitor or guest disrupts normal services, or has harmed or threatened to harm members of the student body, faculty or staff. The right of a visitor or guest to be on University property will be restricted when the visitor or guest has damaged or poses a risk of damage or loss to University property or to the property of others located on University property.
Section 3: Persons in University Buildings After closing to the Public. Many University buildings are open to the public at designated times which are posted at some University buildings entrances. Some University buildings are closed and locked during times they are open to the public. Also, some University buildings, such as student unions, are closed to the public as designated times which are posted at buildings entrance, but remain unlocked for access and use by students, faculty, staff and other authorized persons. Persons who are not authorized by the University to be in a University building after the posted time of closing to the public will be deemed to be trespassing on University property, and may be cited and subject to prosecution for criminal trespass in violation of Nebraska state law.
Section 4: Ban and Bar Notices. University law enforcement or security personnel may issue written notices to any person who has been contacted or observed on University property while engaged in any unlawful or unauthorized activity banning and barring such person from University property, except, as may be specifically authorized in such notice. Violation of any such notice will be deemed to be trespassing on University property, and the offending party may be cited and subject to prosecution for criminal trespass in violation of Nebraska state law. The term “unlawful or unauthorized activity” shall mean any conduct, act or omission by any person that is in violation of (i) any law, rule, regulation or order of the State of Nebraska or of the United States, or (ii) any policy, rule or regulation of the University of Nebraska
