Office of Residential Life

Written by Sally Sinor, Project Archivist

Office of Residential Life
1905– Present

From its humble beginnings in George W. Frank’s Green Terrace to the basement of Old Main (the original Administration Building), Residential Life has played an important role in student life on campus. In 1930, Kearney State Teacher’s College built the first official dormitory on campus, Case Hall. Named after Eva J. Case,  the first preceptress at Green Terrace, it was constructed in 90 days of steel and concrete in the location of today’s Nester Hall.

UNK Archives and Special Collections was offered some of the  materials of the Office of Residential Life to ensure their longevity and to provide access to students and researchers. The collection includes scrapbooks, correspondence, new clippings, and publications as well as audio and digital files.
