Nebraska Housing Credit Guidelines for 2023-2024

These terms and requirements are effective for the Nebraska Housing Credit awarded to incoming freshman for the 2023-2024 academic year.

Renewal of the award is dependent upon continuance in eligible University of Nebraska-Lincoln Housing residential living. Exceptions apply, such as if a student is awarded another benefit in which case the student would receive the greater benefit as opposed to the combined benefit. For example, if the student becomes a Resident Assistant, the benefits of the Resident Assistant take precedence and will be processed instead of the Nebraska Housing Credit. If your residency status changes, this credit may be cancelled as a result.


There is no minimum grade point average or credit accumulation requirement for renewal.


Students must sign a contract for a University Housing residence hall and have a University Housing meal plan (View our meal plans here) by May 1.  All halls are eligible for the credit except for Love Memorial Co-op. The housing credit can not be used for greek housing.


Students must sign a term academic year contract by May 1st.


Student may combine this award with any merit-based or leadership, service, and diversity scholarship offered.
