If you are living on Scott Campus you must purchase the “Scott Resident Permit.” If you live on the Dodge Campus you must select the “Mav-University Resident Permit."
Do I need Renter's Insurance?
We recommend that you get some type of renters insurance. UNO does not provide personal property insurance. Your family’s household insurance may cover your property while you live on-campus. Discuss this with your family’s insurance carrier or an independent insurance carrier.
Your MavCARD will be activated upon move-in to your building. All facilities use this method except University Village.
Can I remain on-campus during holidays/breaks?
Yes. Hours for common buildings will vary. You are not required to remain on-campus, but we do recommend you lock everything and safely store items before you leave.
No. Meal plans are only required for Scott Hall and Scott Crossing Traditional Style. All other facilities have a full kitchen so residents can prepare their own meals. More information about meal plans can be found here.
