Meeting Place and Registration

There will be a registration desk and lunch provided for workshop participants in the UNL City Campus Union from 11:30 am to 12:50pm. Registration is free, but we ask all participants to register. Information packets will be provided at the registration desk. Anyone on campus should be able to direct you to the union. To register online now, click here.


Arrangements have been made for participants who are not from UNL to park in the multi-story parking structure just west of the football stadium on the UNL campus. If you are arriving in Lincoln via Interstate 80, take the Downtown Lincoln Exit (onto I-180). It is difficult to miss seeing the football stadium on your left as you enter downtown Lincoln from I-180. Stay on I-180 past the football stadium until it becomes 9th St. Then turn left on P and left again on 10th. Proceed north on 10th street, keeping to the right hand lane as you pass "Q" street and you will see the stadium (and the parking structure) on your right. We conjecture that anyone in Lincoln will be able to direct you to the football stadium. You will need to collect a parking ticket from a machine as you enter the parking structure: bring this to the registration desk and we will issue you with a voucher that you can use when leaving the parking structure. If you miss getting one of these vouchers, all is not lost: it costs $4 to park in the parking structure for the entire day. Parking on campus is free on Saturday, so you will only need to do this on Friday. But it will be impossible to park anywhere else on campus on Friday unless you are incredibly lucky and find a parking meter somewhere. The alternative to this is probably to leave your car at the Town House if you are staying there and walk to campus: it is approximately a 20-minute walk.


The Department has reserved a block of rooms for Friday, November 19 at the Town House Mini Suites, 18th and "M" Streets, 402-475-3000. (The Town House is adjacent to downtown Lincoln and within one mile of the City Campus.) Rooms are available to workshop registrants at no charge (double occupancy) as long as they last. Check the appropriate item on the registration form to request a room. ALL ROOMS HAVE NOW BEEN ASSIGNED TO WORKSHOP ATTENDEES.
