Nebraska Union Master Plan
University of Nebraska – Lincoln


The essence of the University of Nebraska – Lincoln and the surrounding community is forward-looking. Conversely, the potential of the existing City Union is obscured by its disjointedly built past. In the development of concepts for City Union’s Master Plan, specific elements of its history will be uniquely incorporated throughout a modern, energized and boldly student-centered facility. The proposed concept will transform the Union’s imposing presence along the highly trafficked corridors to its south and west by opening those facades to the outside, bringing the campus through the building, prominently displaying student life, and creating an experience that is unique to UNL. City Union has every potential to become not only the front door to campus, but also the hub for student activity and a distinct place for discovery, innovation, and inspiration.
