Omaha, Nebraska – The University of Nebraska Omaha is proud to be Nebraska's metropolitan university. And we're honored to call the city of Omaha our home. That's why for all of us who live, learn and work here, we are a collaborative force.
Omaha is more than simply our location; the city truly functions as part of our campus. With more than 400,000 residents, and a population of more than 1.2 million within a 50-mile radius, Nebraska's largest city is also integral to what UNO is as a university.
The city is vital to our student life, academics, athletics and mission as a university.
UNO and Omaha have long had a dynamic, fruitful partnership with a shared goal: changing lives of students and residents while enriching the global community.
