Being in the JPII Newman Community allows you to surround yourself with other students of similar faith and values. We offer dedicated study and prayer spaces, and a host of activities such as Bible studies, guest speakers, daily Mass, service trips and more. Here, you can stay connected to your peers and grow in your faith. You can also live here at Newman Hall, affordable, apartment-style housing.
Access to campus is as easy as hopping on the UNO shuttle (which stops right at our front door!) or riding your bike to the Dodge and Scott campuses for your classes, recreation and meals.
Get involved in the community in a variety of ways:
Resident Assistants (RAs) are students who live on each floor and assist the resident manager in their role of making Newman Hall a safe and vibrant home for each of our residents. An RA is on call each evening and spends time at the front desk and making rounds in the building. RAs are a resident’s first call if they have a question about resident life, are in need of something in particular (ie, if locked out of one’s room, have a maintenance request, etc.) or are looking to get more involved in the life of the Newman Center.
The RAs for the 2020-2021 school year are:
Women's 2nd Floor North
Women's 2nd Floor South
Women's 4th Floor
Men's 3rd Floor South
Men's 3rd Floor North
Men's 1st Floor
RA on call phone number: 402.981.3865
Interested in becoming an RA next year? Contact the Resident Manager for more details.
