Welcome to Graduate Lincoln—where your intellectual curiosity meets your favorite place to stay.

Team central for Husker happenings, Graduate Lincoln is just a dash to campus and amid all the historic Haymarket District fun. Here, students, faculty and alum can enjoy a cool and comfortable respite from the everyday. It is elegant enough to host Lincoln’s most beautiful weddings, and a smart choice for corporate meetings, educational events and down home fun.

The lobby is decked in vibrant greens and warm rich wood—a nod to Nebraska’s vast parklands and grand landscape with forest green hand glazed tile, cozy emerald sofas, rustic herringbone floors and exposed brick walls. Playful moments include corn print curtains in our rooms and front desk drapery that pays homage to the state’s great late night son, Johnny Carson. Gather your group for vintage pinball and arcade games, or convene at a communal table—the perfect hub for conversation, camaraderie and a cup of joe.

So whether you’re hitting UNL for a meeting or meet up, cheering on the scarlet and cream, or taking in a concert at Pinewood Bowl, consider us your home away from home. Our warm, friendly and whip smart staff (#humblebrag) can guide you in and around town, or tuck you in for a great night or few.

Our rooms are ready for a stay like you’ve never had before, where little moments of surprise and discovery will meet you down every corridor and around each corner. This is Graduate—be ready to be inspired.

Talent alone won’t make you a success. Neither will being in the right place at the right time, unless you are ready. Are you ready?
-Johnny Carson
