At UNK, students support each other. We make each other feel accepted and included. Often, people know your name and smile and wave as you walk by. That’s the UNK difference.
What does it mean to be a Loper? It's different. Lopers are involved and connected, and actively taking part in their learning.
Be proactive. There are more than 150 active student organizations at UNK. Students who are more involved on campus report improved communication and leadership skills.
Only enrolled students, designated guests of the University of Nebraska at Kearney, and UNMC are eligible for University housing. Students must maintain full-time student status at the University of Nebraska at Kearney to maintain eligibility for housing. Central Community College credit hours may contribute to the full-time 12 hour requirement. Proof of class enrollment at Central Community College is required for eligibility. Those who drop below full time status must fill out an Eligibility Waiver Form and return it to the Office of Residence Life. Once the form has been submitted it will be processed for approval. The student will then be notified if their request has been approved or denied.
In order to reside at University Heights must be at least 21 years old and be a full-time student. A student who is legally married, is pregnant, or is a legal custodial guardian of a child may also reside at University Heights. The Office of Residence Life may grant residency to persons who do not fit within these categories. An Eligibility Waiver Form will need to be filled out and turned into the Office of Residence Life or the Graduate Hall Director at University Heights. Once the Eligibility Waiver has been approved, you would need to fill out the University Heights housing application on line and an apartment would be assigned to you. A new Eligibility Waiver must be filled out each semester for persons who have been given a previous exception. This needs to be completed and approved prior to the student filling out their contract on line for the upcoming term.
If you have questions or concerns, please call the Office of Residence Life at 308-865-8519 for more information.
