Life in Lincoln

Lincoln is one of those great big little cities:  big enough to have a wide variety of shopping, dining, internships, jobs, and cultural and entertainment opportunities, but small enough to drive across town without burning a tank of gas. In our mini-metropolis of nearly 300,000 people, we have hundreds of restaurants, a plethora of stores, and 128 miles of bike and hiking trails. Click here to get a taste of the city. We like it here, and we think you will too.

Best cell phone service—While you can use any cell phone carrier, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and US Cellular provide the best reception on campus.

Transportation to campus—Need help getting from the Lincoln or Omaha airports to Union College? No problem! We provide free airport pick up for new students and their parents. Please email visit@ucollege.edu with your itinerary and cell phone number at least 1 week before your flight departs. The earlier you can email your itinerary, the better.
