Housing is amazing. It was one of my main reasons of going to UNO. All of the housing units are spacious and everyone has their own room. No sharing with another person! It's so nice. All of the units have a full kitchen(sink, island, dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer, garbage disposal, stove, oven), living room, 2 bathrooms, and four decently-sized bedrooms. Also, depending on which living community you are placed, the laundry units are in the same building where you live where you can wash your clothes for FREE. Wi-Fi and cable are also included.

I have loved my experience at UNO thus far! It is a great sized school and a perfect location for me. There is always something going on, and they have a wide variety of majors and clubs that appeal to everyone. My school was recently rated the most military friendly school in the nation, which is of utmost importance to me, as my boyfriend is in the Army and currently studies at UNO to become an officer. I have had some truly great teachers that have taught me valuable information for my career field. I am studying social work and hope to aid the military upon graduation. The social work program at UNO has been a fantastic experience. For the first time in my education, I feel immensely confident in my abilities and competence of this subject. My professors and advisors have been so supportive and helpful. I feel that I am already creating a valuable network among them. I am very confident that UNO is thoroughly preparing me for my future. It means so much to me to be accepted into the social work program and continue my education with peers that value the same things as I do. I truly look forward to school now instead of dreading it, now that I am deep into my field of study and am taking classes that apply to me!

I loved my classes and teachers for the most part, but the social side of my school can be difficult. Its hard to get to know your neighbors in the housing but I know other students in different residence halls have had better luck! My only bad experience at my school is how housing complaints are handled. If I were anything but a straight white female my concerns would be valid. But on the other hand my school is great with international students and has created an open and accepting environment. The camps became smoke free this year and I am very excited!
