When You Arrive

Whether you fly in to Omaha or Lincoln, there are multiple options for getting from the airport to your lodging or other destination. From the Omaha airport, you can rent a car or take the OmaLink shuttle to any location in Lincoln. From the Lincoln airport, you may take a taxi or shuttle, and rental cars also are available. Some local hotels provide courtesy shuttles to and from the airport. See your hotel’s website for more information about hotel shuttles.



The dorms are known as “The Village” and are located at 1055 N. 16th St. More information on the The Village, including a virtual tour, can be found on their web page.

If you are arriving in Lincoln by plane, the best way to get to the Village is to take a cab to the address above. You’ll find the check in desk (available 24 hours) on the north side of the building. Your dorm stay will include all the linens (sheets, blankets, towels) you will need, and will include full board at Selleck Dining Hall.

We will have bus transportation from the dorms to the Embassy Suites, however, this is walkable. People will be picked up and dropped-off at the Village on the East Side of the building/16th St.

When you check into The Village, the registration desk there has parking tags available for both surface lots and parking ramps.
