The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is looking to enhance a parking structure on campus with private residential or commercial development.
University officials called for proposals Friday.
Vice Chancellor for Business and Finance Christine Jackson says university officials see a market for private housing near campus that would help pay for university programs.
Jackson says the public-private partnership would be unique to campus and include dedicated university parking, private residences and commercial space.
The maximum height of any proposed building is 130 feet.
The university also requires 1,250 parking spaces for student, faculty and staff use.
The developer will also be responsible for assessing the housing market.
The residences will not qualify as university-approved student housing.
