Located one block south the campus at 2222 9th Avenue, the Alumni House is the oldest building associated with the UNK. It was built as the residence of Dr. A. O. Thomas, the university's first president. Dr. Thomas and his family moved into the home on February 21, 1907, less than two years after the Nebraska State Normal School at Kearney first started its original mission of preparing teachers.

The Alumni Association acquired the facility from the H.W. Swan family in 1980. What was originally a private home has been transformed into a multi-purpose facility of offices, meeting rooms and reception areas, all with private gifts. Alumni and friends have donated more than $300,000 for renovation and addition projects. Visitors to the Alumni House will find a wealth of historical items representing the periods when it was the Normal School, Nebraska State Teachers College, Kearney State College and now, the University of Nebraska at Kearney.
