Hastings College Residency Requirement

The Hastings College residency requirement reflects a commitment to personal growth through on-campus residency and serves to uphold the overall mission of the college. All first-year, sophomore and junior students, including Hastings area students, are required to live on campus unless they meet one of the criteria below. Those in violation of the off-campus residency policy or who falsify information to meet criteria are subject to being billed full room and board rate. If it is determined that a student, while under the three-year residency requirement policy, is inhabiting an off-campus residence, while also maintaining an on-campus residence simply for appearances, and have confirmed a new off-campus address, they are subject to being removed from the housing system and being billed full room and board rates.

  1. Reside with their parent or legal guardian in their primary residence within a 30 mile radius of Hastings, Nebraska for the entire academic year;
  2. Have lived on campus three academic years/six semesters;
