Themed Housing & Living Learning Communities
Maverick Village (Dodge Campus)
Honors Living Learning Community
Students interested in this opportunity will be grouped with other students in the Honors Program within housing at Maverick Village on UNO’s campus. Students living in this community will be committed to Honors courses in both fall and spring—but there are choices and all Honors-only courses also offer general education credit. Students can thus study and live with their peers in classes—and planned activities will help the community work together. The Honors community in Maverick Village is the longest running group—and students reflect positively on the friends they make living and learning together.
Students will take courses together, live together, and learn together. Housing and Residence Life will provide students with opportunities to grow as student-citizens on campus, with all the convenience and opportunity residence hall life offers. The professors of the Honors classes are committed to working with each student and the entire Honors group, with possibilities for additional learning opportunities through exciting extra-curricular activities as well as additional housing programming for the community.
