Living on campus creates a small community feel within the larger UNO community.

Over 2,000 students live in on-campus housing. All residence halls are suite style apartments with 4 private bedrooms. Suites in Maverick Village, University Village, Scott Village, and Scott Court feature full kitchens, living rooms and two bathrooms. Each room is fully furnished and rent includes basic cable, internet, and utilities. Maverick and University Village also provide laundry facilities.

All residence halls have a full-time, live-in Residence Assistant who acts as a peer mentor to their residences. Residence Assistants develop a trusted relationship with the students and serve as mentors, advisors and confidants. They plan and supervise activities for the hall, and generally maintain an atmosphere conducive to academic pursuits and college social life.
