Housing adopts new payment system
By Jennifer O’Cilka
Senior Reporter
Students returning to University
of Ncbraska-Lincoin residence halls
this fall will be hit by bills more often,
but less painfully, under a new pay
ment system.
Housing Director Doug Zatechka
said residence hall studenis will pay
bills monthly rather than one or three
times a semester.
In the past, housing did not send
payment reminders. Now students will
receive monthly statements of room
and board and loft and refrigerator
rental costs. Zatechka said.
He said Residence Hall Associa
tion members were supportive of the
change decided on last yefr as a way
to try to help students pay their bills.
“We think it will be a little more
• convenient,” he said. Billing should
come at the same time working stu
dents receive paychecks, he said.
Another change is the relocation
of the University Honors Program
office from the Nebraska Union to
Neihardt Residence Hall, Zatechka
The move was made because the
honors program and other groups in
the union needed more space, Zal
cchka said.
Parts of Neihardt were remodeled
to include office, classroom and
computer space for the honors pro
gram. And, Zatechka said, he and
honors program director Patrice Berger
hope to start an honors program lloor
in the Cather-Pound-Ncihardt resi
dence complex.
“My impression is that they (the
University Honors Program) may work
toward offering classes in that area
(Neihardt),” Zatechka said.
The Selleck Quadrangle also is
being changed extensively, Zatechka
The basement of Scllcck is being
remodeled to update game rooms,
multi-purpose and storage areas and
student government offices.
The appearance of many of the
older areas will be improved, includ
ing new ceilings, lighting, carpet and
furniture, Zatechka said.
Air conditioners and elevators in
Scllcck will be working before the
end of the spring semester, Zatechka
“For a long time (Sclleck) has
needed some remodeling so residents
have similar facilities to several of
the more larger (residence) halls,’ ’ he
This summer also was the first
year Sclleck Residence Hall was open
all year.
Zatechka said Sclleck was “very
full” heading into the fall semester
because students found the 12-month
housing convenient.
