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.

Resident Assistants

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 2019-2020 school year are:

Naomi Kosch
Women's 2nd Floor South

Michaela Moriarty
Women's 2nd Floor North

Madison Koperski
Women's 4th Floor

Max Korensky
Men's 1st Floor

Sam Wilder
Men's Floor 3rd North

Colson Kosch

RA on call phone number: 402.981.3865
