For Current Tenants:  Summer Storage Hold Request Form


Union College has a limited number of houses, duplexes and apartments which are available to faculty/staff and eligible students.  These are conveniently located around the perimeter of the college.  In most cases, tenants are responsible for paying their own gas, electricity, and water service.  A security deposit equal to one-month's rent per unit is required in advance once a student has been accepted for rental housing.  Rent for college-owned housing is charged each month to the student's account and will be considered, just as is dormitory room rent, when making your financial plan with the college.

NOTE:  Residence halls are managed by Residential Life and supervised by Student Life.


Cooper Place Apartments


Located at the corner of S. 52nd St. and Cooper Ave. in Lincoln, these units are available only to Union College students.  Apartments are all electric.  Amenities include:  central heating and air; washer/dryer in each unit; large kitchens with glass top stove/self cleaning oven, full-size self-defrosting fridge, dishwasher, garbage disposal, and microwave; ceiling fans; free Internet hook-up through the college; large bedroom(s) and living room; carpet and miniblinds; and private parking lot.  Most two-bedroom units also have two bathrooms.




All Union College students must be approved to live "off campus" by the Office of Student Life. In this case, "off campus" means any dwelling other than a residence hall.  However, Union College campus housing is considered to be "on campus" due to its ownership and location. Housing that is not a residence hall or campus housing is also called "village".

For further information go to To apply to live in non-residence hall housing, complete the "Housing" section in your online registration checklist.

Gaining permission from the Office of Student Life or completing a tenant application for Campus Housing does not guarantee placement in a campus housing rental unit. Availability is limited. Applicants are also urged to personally inspect the unit prior to signing the rental agreement or moving in.
