CMI Fellows Information

Note that the information on this page is subject to change and will be posted as it becomes available. Check the page on a regular basis for updates after you have been accepted to attend the Institute. Westbrook Music Building is located one block west of 1104 R Street in Lincoln.


The University of Nebraska–Lincoln is a tobacco and alcohol-free campus. All tobacco products (including cigarettes, e-cigarettes, cigars, chewing/pipe tobacco, and vapor products) are prohibited in all indoor and outdoor areas of campus. Likewise, all forms of alcohol and illegal drugs are similarly prohibited in all areas of campus.


All Fellows will stay at The University Suites during the Chamber Music Institute. The residence hall located at 1780 R Street in Lincoln (see the interactive campus map.) The University Suites is part of the Robert E. Knoll Residential Complex. It is an apartment-style residence hall equipped with en suite bathrooms and small kitchens. Appliances are provided (microwave, refrigerator), but not pots, pans or dishes. The University Suites will provide bedding (pillow, linens and blanket) and a daily towel service. The residence hall does not provide clothing hangers.

See the Conference Services web site for more information about campus housing and visiting the city.

Wired and wireless internet service is provided free of charge. The front desk will provide campus connection instructions.


The Institute will open with a banquet on Sunday, June 3 in the Steinhart Room at the Lied Center for Performing Arts. All other meals, unless otherwise noted on the schedule, will be served in the University's newest dining hall, the Cather Dining Complex, which is just north of the University Suites.


We ask that you wear business attire (coat and tie / dress / suit) for the opening banquet, performances and finale reception. You will not need to bring formal concert wear. Casual clothing is permissible for work sessions. The weather in Nebraska can vary greatly. It would be a good idea to bring a light rain jacket and/or an umbrella.


In August of 2017 a number of changes were made to vehicular traffic on campus. 16th Street is now a two-way street; stoplights at 16th and Vine, 16th and S, 16th and R, and 17th and R have been replaced with stop signs; and 17th Street is no longer a through street between R and Vine Streets. The intent is to slow and divert traffic through campus to increase pedestrian and biker safety. We will post instructions on how to approach the University Suites soon.


The local airports are Eppley Airfield in Omaha (approximately 60 miles from Lincoln) and Lincoln Municipal Airport. The Lincoln Municipal Airport is 10 minutes from the University campus. We strongly suggest that Fellows arrive in Lincoln on Saturday, June 2 and depart after breakfast on Monday, June 11 to prevent travel difficulties from impacting full participation in the Chamber Music Institute events. Housing will be provided from June 2 through the night of June 10. Also, breakfast will be provided on Monday, June 11.
