Incoming Students

Nepalese Student Association (NSA) strives to provide the feeling of being in a home, away from home. We understand that leaving our family to study abroad can be a challenging task for many of us. It might even be the first time leaving our family for a lot of us. There are so many things that we have to worry about when studying abroad and it can get overwhelming. So, it is one of our main missions to ease your transition from living in Nepal to studying abroad. We have compiled a list of Frequently Asked Questions for you to browse below. If you have any further questions or would like to simply contact us, feel free to do so at

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q. What kind of place is Lincoln?

A. Lincoln is a small university-centered town. Usually, it is a quiet place and you probably won't see a lot of people walking around, except around the university when classes are running and in downtown during weekends. There are a lot of international and American students living in Lincoln and a lot of people that you will meet here are really friendly and cooperative. Lincoln has a rather limited number of places to go overall but there are plenty of events happening everywhere and a lot of them are for students like us.

Q. What about my Housing while I am studying at UNL?

A. First of all, if you are an undergraduate student who will still be under 19 when classes start, you need to stay on campus. If you are or will be above 19 when classes start, you can still stay on campus, however, it will be more expensive than living off campus.
If you are planning on living off campus, Nebraska provides one of the cheapest apartments and other housing services as compared to the other US States. Browsing through the housing type of your choice online can give you an idea of how the prices are in Lincoln. Also, we are always here to help you find your apartment.

Q. How can I find roommates for me?

A. Before the beginning of every semester, we usually have a facebook group which includes everyone who has contacted us and wants to come to study at UNL from Nepal. If you would like to join the group and get to know other Nepalese like you, contact us at
