New international students are allowed to move into their residence halls early in order to attend mandatory orientation activities. There is no additional charge to live in the residence hall during orientation but food costs will be the student's responsibility.
The date the residence halls will open for NEW international students is Sunday August 14, 2016 for the fall semester. However, in order to move in on this date, a signed housing contract must have been received by the Office of Residence Life and the Orientation Registration (completion of the below form) have been received by International Student Services.
Here is the best way to travel to Kearney:
The best airports to use for arrival in Nebraska are:
If you choose to fly to Lincoln or Omaha, you will need to make reservations on Navigator Express Bus Service for transportation from the airport to the campus of UNK. Below are instructions specific to each airport:
OMAHA: The Navigator Bus will pick up at the Omaha airport at 2:00 P.M. daily except for Sundays. This means if your flight arrives later than 2:00 PM, you will need to make a hotel reservation for the night in Omaha and take the bus the next day.
If this is the case, then you must arrive at the Omaha airport one day in advance so that you will be on the campus of UNK to check in to your residence hall on May 17th.
The charge for the bus from Omaha to UNK is $76.
LINCOLN: The Navigator Bus will pick up at the Lincoln airport at 3:25 P.M. daily except for Sundays. This means if your flight arrives later than 3:25 PM, you will need to make a hotel reservation for the night in LIncoln and take the bus the next day.
If this is the case, then you must arrive at the Lincoln airport one day in advance so that you will be on the campus of UNK to check in to your residence hall on May 17th.
The charge for the bus from Lincoln to UNK is $67.
***Kearney: If you arrive at the Kearney airport, there will be a UNK van at the airport to pick you up. However, please keep in mind that the flight into the Kearney airport is on a very small plane and therefore is often delayed or cancelled. And, this delay often causes orientation programming to be missed.
Once your flight and bus transportation details have been arranged, you will need to notify the International Student Service Office of your arrival date and time by completing the Orientation Registration Form below.
If any information/arrival details on the Orientation Registration form change, please contact the International Center IMMEDIATELY by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, fax (308-865-8947) or telephone (308-865-8953).
