Student Life

Student Union

Welcome to the new-look Nebraskan Student Union – the heart of campus life and activity for UNK students, faculty, staff, alumni and guests.

The union is the main gathering spot on campus, a place where students connect with each other and the community. It’s one of the first locations future Lopers see when they arrive on campus and a building where students meet throughout their time here to enjoy a meal, grab a cup of coffee, study for that big exam or hang out with friends.

This place is all about making connections.

The Nebraskan Student Union is home to the Antelope Bookstore and offices for multicultural affairs, student engagement, fraternity and sorority life, student government and the Loper Programming and Activities Council (LPAC). It’s also where you get your UNK ID card.

The Market @ 27th Street, the largest on-campus dining facility, is located on the union’s second floor and a Subway with sandwiches for breakfast and dinner can be found on the main level.

There are a couple of new dining options people are pretty excited about, as well.

A fully licensed Starbucks and Chick-fil-A were recently added to the main level.

Fuel up on coffee, espresso, Frappuccino and a variety of other beverages at Starbucks, which also serves breakfast and dinner items such as sandwiches, wraps and pastries, along with an assortment of sweet treats.

At Chick-fil-A, diners will find the restaurant’s popular chicken sandwiches and waffle fries, plus chicken nuggets, salads, milkshakes and other menu selections.

Grab your food to go, pull up a chair or relax for a while in a remodeled student lounge that features a gas fireplace.

All restaurants inside the Nebraskan Student Union are open to the public and available for UNK students to use their flexible meal plan dollars.
