The university offers several special options for engineering students to live near each other to help acclimate to college life and to serve as academic and cocurricular resources. Being a member of the engineering living community helps students join valuable study groups, be in close proximity to engineering facilities, and enjoy hands-on activities.
Approximately 70 new students in the College of Engineering each year join the Engineering Learning Community in Abel Hall on UNL's City Campus. The residence hall us directly across from the engineering complex.
