UNMC/UNO Real Estate With Honors Programs and Events
One possible drawback to living off-campus is the potential to become less involved with campus life, activities, and other university-related programs. UNMC/UNO Real Estate With Honors believes it is important to maintain and even increase your relationship with campus when you move off campus.
In order to foster and grow these relationships, UNMC/UNO Real Estate With Honors offers various off-campus programs and educational events for your participation and enjoyment such as housing fairs, block parties, safe night out/crime prevention events, helpful neighbor programs, first-time renter/first-time buyer workshops, and other programs. All events are free for UNMC/UNO students & staff, the Nebraska Medical Center and UNMC Physicians employees, and all their families.
These programs help off-campus residents enjoy their off-campus experience, get to know their neighbors, and help increase knowledge about real estate issues and living off-campus.
