Students who live on campus are more likely to earn better grades, become involved on campus, interact with faculty, and are much more likely to graduate. Due to the significant link between academic retention and on-campus living, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has adopted the following On-campus Residency Requirement:
All incoming students under the age of 19 or students who have not completed or transferred 27 or more accepted semester hours of post-secondary education as of the first day of fall semester classes (Aug. 26, 2013) are required to live in University-approved on-campus housing.
This policy is in effect for the entire academic year.
If the Residency Requirement form has not been completed, please download the On-campus Residency Requirement form, make a copy for your records and return the form to the University Housing Residence Life office. You may return the form by the methods below.
Please note, this form is only to be used by INCOMING STUDENTS AND THEIR PARENTS. If you are living in a residence hall and planning to move off campus or home (if within 30 miles of campus) you must see the residence director of your residence hall. This form will not be accepted if you currently have a residence hall contract.
