We are so glad you're here.

The Newman Center – St. Thomas Aquinas Church has served the spiritual, social, and leadership formation needs of Catholic students attending the University of Nebraska–Lincoln for over a century.

Having outgrown the original facility, the beautiful, new Newman Center - St. Thomas Aquinas Church was constructed in 2015 on the corner of 16th and Q streets on campus. Since expansion, our existing ministries have thrived and many new ones have begun! Check out all that is going on at the Newman Center by clicking a ministry area below.

"The Newman Institute went beyond presenting facts and knowledge and encouraged us to be seekers of truth." -Tessa Contrares, Psychology Major

The Newman Center has been such a powerful and pivotal place for me. My faith truly wouldn’t be what it is without having the Newman to mold me these years in college.
