The University of Nebraska System has entered into an agreement with the State of Nebraska and the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services to temporarily lodge individuals under quarantine and/or isolation within certain residence halls on university campuses across the state.
The individuals who will have an opportunity for temporary housing in these facilities will be health care workers and other essential service workers who are selected to meet very specific criteria by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services.
As part of this agreement, the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) will grant the State a temporary emergency license to utilize housing units within Maverick Village and University Village on UNO's Dodge Campus for quarantine and/or isolation purposes. All of our academic buildings, student centers, library and housing on UNO's Scott Campus will be unaffected.
Housing units, laundry facilities, common use spaces, and parking stalls available at University Village and Maverick Village are to be used by these individuals and authorized personnel only.
All students who were residing in these spaces on UNO’s Dodge Campus were asked to relocate to Scott Campus or if they prefer, to relocate to other off-campus accommodations last week. In accordance with Nebraska System guidance announced April 7, only university employees designated as essential to university operations by the Office of the Chancellor are allowed to report to work on campus as most are already working from home.
Each of these carefully considered measures at the state, NU System and campus levels are part of a unified effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 in Nebraska and to do our part to “flatten the curve” in the global fight against the virus. Said differently, to save lives.
All UNO students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to visit unomaha.edu/coronavirus daily for the latest information and announcements as the university responds to COVID-19. Answers to many of the questions the university community may have can be found on a helpful FAQ page.
UNO's Response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) is actively monitoring the rapidly evolving novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and providing regular updates to the UNO community as the situation changes.
As UNO safely resumes in-person teaching and learning this fall, campus leaders and five working groups composed of students, faculty, and staff continue to assess and provide guidance in the areas of academics, facilities, student services, communications, and events/athletics. We are committed to your health and success this semester.
