Housing Policies and Procedures

On Campus Living Requirement

The success of students is our focus in Residence Life.  The University of Nebraska at Kearney in accordance with the Board of Regents policy established the On-Campus Living Policy as a requirement that serves important educational and developmental purposes.  All full-time students under the age of 19 on the first day of class in the fall semester are required to live in University housing for the duration of the academic year, unless one of the qualified exemptions is met.

Student Rights and Responsibilities

In August of 2020, the University of Nebraska at Kearney adopted a new Student Code of Conduct.  This has impacted how Residence Life processes conduct cases and the section “RESIDENCE LIFE AND UNIVERSITY CONDUCT PROCESS” in the Residence Life Information & Policies Handbook.
