As a residential campus, it is the residency policy of Nebraska Wesleyan University that undergraduate students reside in approved on-campus living units for three years or six semesters not including summer terms.

  • All first year students must live in on-campus housing.
  • Members of sororities or fraternities may reside in Greek houses meeting criteria for approved residential facilities during their third through sixth semesters.

  • they live with parents/guardians within 30 miles of the Nebraska Wesleyan campus;
  • have reached their 21st birthday prior to the start of the fall semester;
  • live with a spouse;
  • are enrolled for fewer than 12 credit hours per semester as a part-time student; or
    have received a special exception from the Housing Exemption Committee for a extreme or emergency condition.
