Approximately 2,200 students live on campus in ten traditional residence halls, one apartment-style complex, and two Greek complexes. Each housing facility is supervised by a live-in hall director, and is staffed by live-in resident assistants on the floors. Most residence facilities feature several lounges, study areas, and recreational spaces for student interaction and involvement. All halls feature computer labs which are networked to the UNK internet. These labs are available exclusively for on-campus students. All residence halls at UNK are wired for computer network access. From their residence hall rooms, students may access e-mail, library resources, course syllabi, on-line registration and other personal information.
Housing contracts provide for the above services for the full academic year, unless otherwise indicated on the contract prior to issuance.
