Students in Room

The majority of students at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln live on campus for at least one year. UNL has an on-campus residency requirement for incoming freshmen. Students can choose from traditional or suite-style residence halls. Apartment-style facilities are available to upperclass students.

Traditional residence halls are available for all students. Traditional halls include Abel, East Campus Hall – Traditional, Harper, Husker Hall, Love Memorial Co-op, Neihardt, Sandoz, Schramm, Smith and Selleck. Suite-style halls include Knoll Residential Center, University and Eastside Suites. All halls except Love Memorial are co-ed.

Traditional and suite-style halls come with a 5- or 7-day unlimited access meal plan, with the exception of Husker (common area kitchen) and Love Memorial (students share cooking responsibilities on a rotating basis and are billed a food allowance.)
Apartment-style facilities are available to upperclass students only. These halls include The Courtyards, East Campus Hall – Apartment-style and The Village. Two complimentary meals per week (Mon-Fri) are included with the contract; however, residents have the option of purchasing an additional meal plan.

Please be sure to carefully review all the contract policies.
