As one of six schools in the Big Ten Conference with a dry campus policy, UNL does not permit alcohol possession or consumption anywhere on campus — including residence halls, Greek houses, the Nebraska Union or Memorial Stadium. UNL’s policy is among the strictest.

At many colleges and universities, you will need to live in the residence halls for your first year or two of college. A few schools require campus residency for all four years. Even if your school allows students to live off campus, consider the pros and cons of living on campus before making a final decision.
The tuition charge is $24,000 while room and board is $11,830, books and supplies are $1,044 and other fees come in at $1,962. All price data is sourced from the 2019/2020 U.S. Department of Education National Center for Education Statistics survey.
Yes, most schools require on- campus living for non-local students, but not all do. There are plenty of non-commuter schools that allow freshmen to live outside the confines of campus . “Schools require freshmen to live on campus because it can foster community spirit and keep the student involved.”
Some people think that UNL is a party school – but compared to real party schools like University of Arizona or Arizona State University, maybe one out in California and a few others that I’m sure are out there, UNL is pretty tame.
While off – campus rents may be cheaper than the price of room and board at school in certain cases, rent rarely provides the range of services that a school offers. Living in a dorm eliminates electricity, gas, and water bills, and sometimes even cable and internet bills.
At least two dozen schools, including Brown University, the University of Pennsylvania, Oberlin College, Clark University and the California Institute of Technology, allow some or all students to share a room with anyone they choose — including someone of the opposite sex.
Living in a single also means never having to live with a roommate’s visiting friends or significant others, and never having to clear your own visitors with a roommate first. It cuts down on awkwardness and allows privacy whenever it’s needed.
