Discover Lincoln

This is one of the most exciting times in Lincoln’s history. The Pinnacle Bank Arena and entertainment district opened in September of 2013, giving Lincoln the perks of a big city and comfort of a small town. New living, retail, restaurant and concert spaces are all within walking distance for students—campus is nestled adjacent to Lincoln’s thriving downtown scene. Living on campus, you’ll never be more than a few blocks from the action.

Lincoln’s extensive trails system has been recognized as one of the best in the nation. More than 130 miles of trails are available for walking, hiking, biking and running.
