Welcome to Lincoln
New is Now in Lincoln
Opportunities for teaching and research are expanding in Lincoln, a community poised for continued growth:
Steady population increases to more than 250,000 residents
Big Ten university with a dynamic mix of education and human science programs
130 miles of biking, running and commuting trails
More parkland per capita than Austin, Portland and all but a handful of U.S. cities
New is now
Lincoln voted for bigger concerts and events, and now the Pinnacle Bank Arena is here.
Around it, the Historic Haymarket has expanded from being a hotspot to buzzing entertainment district. More restaurants. More options. More fun. What remains the same is the short walk from campus.
