Spring 2017 International Student Move-In Guide

Welcome! First, please fill out the arrival form through the New Student Enrollment office.

We're now accepting Intercultural Aide applications for the 2017–18 academic year!


2017 International Student Welcome Card

Official Spring 2017 University Housing contracts start on Friday, January 6. International students who move in before January 4 will be temporarily relocated to Selleck Residence Hall until January 4. Starting January 4, students can move into their permanent room assigned in their contract. Students will need to pay an extra fee ($32/night) for each day they're moved in prior to January 6. Please check with University Housing to arrange early arrivals by emailing housing@unl.edu. You can also request early check-in in the housing portal, which is located at myred.unl.edu.

SPRING SEMESTER MEALS:

Dining Services will start serving meals on January 9. Serving times, and any changes to serving times, can be found on the Dining Services Hours webpage, on the dining menu app and at the dining halls.

Please be prepared to purchase some food supplies and pay for meals at restaurants. We've prepared some welcome activities where students can get light meals. Please check the Spring Welcome Card for more information.

GETTING TO CAMPUS:

International students need to arrive on campus no later than Thursday, January 5 in order to attend International Student Orientation sessions. UNL New Student Enrollment recommends international students fly into the Lincoln Municipal Airport (LNK) on January 3, 4 and 5 because UNL will provide a free shuttle from the Lincoln airport to UNL’s City and East campuses on these days.

The free shuttle will be available on these days only.

Please look for the UNL Welcome Desk at baggage claim if you have questions when you arrive at the Lincoln airport. Students who would like to use the free UNL shuttle service must complete the arrival form.

If you choose to fly into Omaha's Eppley Airfield, you can choose to travel with OMALiNK. OMALiNK is a safe, licensed shuttle service that specializes in airport transportation. You must complete the reservation on omalink.com or call +1 877.473.5465 before you depart from your home country to ensure there will be a shuttle available when you arrive.

Price: $45/student, one-way from the Omaha airport to UNL’s City or East Campus. Please visit OMALiNK’s website for more detailed pricing information.

Please be sure to have your on-campus address written down and provide it to your driver. When you arrive on campus, please check in at your residence hall to get your room key and temporary linens if needed.

University Housing Intercultural Aides will welcome you at the front desk area, guide you to your room and provide you with any necessary help in your residence hall
