Mantor Hall, one of the larger residence halls on the University of Nebraska at Kearney campus, is hosting open house events   Friday, Oct. 2, for the on-campus community, and again on Saturday, Oct. 3, for the general public.

The open house, both days, will be from 3:30-4:30 p.m. Tours will begin at the front desk of Mantor Hall. Refreshments will be served after the tours.

Mantor Hall was closed last year to undergo a $4 million renovation of restrooms, replacement of plumbing and updates for the sprinkler system. The open house will allow the public to see these renovations, including changes to the front entryway, new restrooms, updated lounges, and painting and tile work in the rooms.

Anita Kucera, UNK associate director of Residential and Greek Life, said that she wants to encourage the on-campus and off-campus community members to stop by and see all the recent changes.

“It’s important for the campus community, including the employees, faculty and staff who work with the students, to know where their students live and experience their home away from home,” she said.

Mantor Hall currently houses more than 250 students, including Thompson Learning Community and the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity. The hall is located near the campus tennis courts, Foster Field, Cushing Coliseum, and the Health and Sports Center.

“The open house for Mantor hall is a great opportunity for people to get into the building and see what UNK is trying to do to accommodate students’ needs,” Kucera said.
