Nebraska Wesleyan Housing Partnership

Southeast Community College has an exciting partnership with Nebraska Wesleyan University to give SCC students an on-campus community experience until Woodhaven Hall is complete in January 2024. NWU is offering spaces in select on-campus housing units to any SCC student. SCC students will live on the NWU campus and be part of their residential community while taking classes at SCC. 

SCC students must maintain a minimum of 12 credit hours of enrollment at SCC while living on campus at NWU. Students must have their own transportation to/from campus.

Due to demand, our beds are full at Nebraska Wesleyan and we are no longer taking applications for fall. We are excited to be opening Woodhaven Hall on the SCC Lincoln campus for spring 2024. Complete the Housing Reservation Contract now to reserve your room now.

A $150 deposit is required to SCC. The deposit will be applied to any accrued damages; remaining funds will be returned to the student after all potential damage charges are assessed after a student moves out of the residence hall. The deposit will be submitted to SCC with the housing contract.

SCC students residing in NWU housing will be charged a non-refundable $90/year fee (billed annually) that covers the costs of:
  • A digital fob coded with residence hall and meal plan access. If this fob is lost or damaged, there will be a replacement fee. The fob is the property of NWU and is to be returned to NWU when the student moves out from NWU housing.
  • Log in access to NWU wireless internet on campus and use of on-campus computer/printing labs. SCC students may access all SCC-supported computing resources from the computers in NWU computer labs.
  • A mailbox in the NWU Mail Center where students can receive either postal mail or packages.
  • Access to the Cochrane Woods library and other campus study spaces. SCC students have borrowing access to NWU library holdings through Interlibrary Loan.
  • Recreational access (via fob sign in) to the Marian and Marion Weary Center for Health and Fitness.
  • A student parking pass which gives access to parking in any NWU student-only or student/faculty/staff lots. Students who wish to purchase their own reserved parking place in the lot nearest to the suites and townhouses may contact the NWU Business Office. 2022-2023 reserved parking tags cost $190/semester. SCC will be notified of any parking violations that result in fines and those fines will be added to the student’s SCC account.
  • A SCC/NWU Resident ID card that students can use along with their SCC ID card for free admission to Theatre performances or NWU home in-season athletic competitions. Post-season athletic events will require an entrance fee.

Housing costs will be charged to the student’s SCC account. Eligible students can apply financial aid to the housing cost charges.

The contract length is for the fall semesters. All students will need to apply to live on the SCC campus in Woodhaven Hall for the spring 2024 term. Students can choose to live on campus for one semester with proper notice given to Residence Life staff to cancel their contract at least 30 days ahead of the following term. Room and board charges will be assessed by semester. NWU housing facilities close during the institution’s Thanksgiving holiday and after finals in the fall. Break housing contracts are available for students wishing to stay on campus; a per day rate for break housing will be charged. NWU’s dining hall is not open during breaks.

Roommates are assigned based on the lifestyle habits and preferences submitted by students as part of the Roommate Questionnaire. Students are able to request specific roommates provided each resident designates the other resident(s) on the Roommate Questionnaire.

Students living in the White/Heim Suites are required to have a meal plan.

  • Prairie Wolf Plan: $2,043 per semester: includes 12 meals per week and $100 in flex points each semester to be used in the NWU Coffee Shop.
