Residency Philosophy and Requirement
Hastings College believes traditionally-aged, college first-year students, sophomores and juniors benefit greatly from living in an on-campus, residential environment. The college believes that nearly as much growth and development takes place through a campus residential community experience as in the classroom. Opportunities exist for leadership, involvement, and community life in an on-campus environment that are not available in off-campus housing. Upper-class students become role models for younger students and relationships evolve into deep and long-lasting friendships.
The three-year residency requirement reflects the college’s overall 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 the following criteria for exemption from on-campus housing:
1. Reside with their parent or legal guardian in their primary residence within Adams County, Nebraska (the county encompassing the college);
2. Have senior class standing (87 hours of credit or more by the first day of classes) and have lived on campus six semesters;
3. Will be a part-time student;
4. Are married or a single, custodial parent;
5. Are 23 years of age or older by the first day of classes in the school year under consideration, or are enrolled in the 22 Plus Program;
6. Have their Associate’s degree.
