Emergency Housing


  • If an emergency situation arises off campus that results in a UNL student being displaced from their off-campus housing, University Housing and Dining Services may be able to provide on-campus housing.
  • Emergency situations could include fires, floods or any significant emergency that displaces student.  University residence hall emergency housing should not be used to mitigate roommate conflicts between private apartment residents, as isolation for infectious disease or as temporary housing for student in between apartment leases.
