Scott Court features many amenities: wireless internet, basic cable, local phone service, recycling, electricity, sewer, gas and possible weekly housekeeping in individual suites.

The resident halls also have secured access for both the building and parking area, as well as paid utilities. The halls also have common areas with a computer lab, 50-inch flat-screen TV and a presentation whiteboard.

Residents will also have access to the Scott Village basketball/volleyball courts and the optional Scott Dining Hall meal plan.

Dorm residents will also have easy accessibility to the many restaurants, stores and entertainment venues within walking distance: Aksarben Cinema, Aksarben Village, Barnes & Noble, Jimmy John’s and more.

Scott Court will be composed of four buildings, three floors each, for a total of 480 beds. Construction began early 2010. Over the past years, the complex of buildings has grown from a skeleton-size to full-fledge modern campus housing.

While Scott Court dorms will be accommodating, comfortable, and equipped with a plethora of services, the rent will remain affordable for students. The 2010/2011 rates are $4,950 for an academic year lease (these are limited), $6,180 for a monthly payment plan, $5,940 for a semester payment plan, and $5,880 for an annual payment plan. This is less expensive than UNO’s current up-to-date dorms, Maverick Village: $6,492 for a monthly payment plan, $6,276 for a semi-annual payment plan, and $6,136 for an annual payment plan.

“The feedback we have received has been very positive,” Orlich said. “We believe the UNO officials are very excited about what this project will bring to our campus.”
