Due to changes in the Nebraska State Fire Code, NCTA is no longer able to provide stoves for usage in the residence halls. We will be substituting the stoves with other means of being able to cook in the residence halls.
Residence halls are more than just a place to sleep. Living on campus is not about the building but, about the relationships you will build while living with us.
Life in a residence hall is about building new relationships and expanding your knowledge. It is getting to know people from different backgrounds and how to live in a community with others. Essentially, it is about learning how to care about those with whom you live.
Approximately 150 students live on-campus at NCTA in two traditional residence halls, and one suite-style complex. The Office of Residence Life coordinates all campus housing and is dedicated to maintaining an environment conducive to educational and personal development.
Each residence hall facility is supervised by the Residence Life Manager and is staffed by Resident Advisors who live on each floor. All residence halls feature computer labs with access to the NCTA computer network along with wireless internet, lounges, kitchenettes, laundry facilities, quiet study areas, and recreational space. All rooms are DISH TV ready and provided with basic furnishings.
A variety of specific living environment options are available to students, including double or single rooms, co-ed by wing floors, Smoking is not allowed in the residence halls, however an outside area is designated for smoking.
This residency requirement serves important educational and developmental purposes. Students prosper in stable living environments that are close to academic resources and organized student activities that promote social interaction and exposure to new and diverse life experiences, and that afford supervision, counseling, and other assistance as may be needed.
On-campus residency provides unparalleled opportunities for multi-dimensional student development, and is part-and-parcel of NCTA’s broad educational program. The Housing Contract Exemption Policy is strictly enforced. However, some students may have living requirements that NCTA cannot accommodate on campus.
On-Campus Residency Policy
All unmarried students who are enrolled for 12 or more credit hours, and who are under the age of 21, has fewer than 30 credit hours of post-secondary education or has a cumulative GPA of less than 2.0 as of the first day of the fall semester of the current
academic year, are required to reside in on-campus housing. The only exceptions are if:
• The student lives with his/her parents or guardian within a 45-mile driving distance from NCTA;
• The student will live with a close relative (grandparent, brother, sister, aunt or uncle) provided the relative is over 21 years of age, and the residence is within 45 miles of the NCTA campus;
• The student is married, a single parent or has a documented medical/mental health condition which makes it impractical to meet the housing requirement.
An exception request will only be considered after the appropriate form has been returned with supportive documentation to the Residence Life Manager.
