About:

The University of Nebraska Omaha (UNO) was founded in 1908 and is quite possibly Nebraska’s most fleetingly growing University with its newest campus developments extending into the Aksarben area, including the state of the art Baxter Arena where President Barack Obama spoke in January 2016.

UNO is located in Midtown Omaha, between Dundee and Aksarben, and made up of two campuses separated by Elmwood Park. The north campus is located between Dodge Street and Elmwood Park, while the south campus is located between Pacific and Center Streets. UNO also operates the Kaneko-UNO Library in Downtown Omaha.

UNO currently offers more than 200 programs across 6 different colleges, with new facilities constructed for their business, engineering and information technology programs. In  2011, the Nebraska Board of Regents approved UNO to reclassify from Division II to Division I.
