Housing

Housing

During their time in Omaha, exchange students reside on campus in self-catering apartment style dorms. All residence halls have laundry facilities available which use both coins or student ID card for payment.  Exchange students are usually placed in Opus Hall or Davis Square Apartments.  More information can be found here, and housing rates for 2017-18 are available here.  Exchange students can pay for housing online via the NEST after arriving on campus, and housing costs in Opus/Davis will be individually determined based on the move-in and move-out date.
