University of Nebraska-Lincoln officials say students will save about $85 a semester if the university transfers health center control to a private contractor.

In September, Chancellor Harvey Perlman announced plans to seek a private operator to build and operate a new University Health Center. On Tuesday he answered students' questions while offering an update on the negotiations with Bryan Health.

Bryan Health submitted the only bid, proposing to spend $14.4 million to build a 40,625-square-foot center.

A survey related to the proposal will be included on the ballot for the Association of Students of the University of Nebraska on March 6, and the NU Board of Regents is scheduled to vote on the privatization proposal on March 15.
