Care Packages

Various care package options

University Catering's care packages are the perfect way to brighten your Husker’s day. Whether you want to celebrate a birthday, help your favorite student through a late night of studying, or send a get well soon, we’ve got you covered!

The care package program is a funding program for the Scarlet and Cream, the university's chapter of the National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH). 35% of every care package purchase goes to NRHH to help fund on-campus programming. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Please allow ten business days for care package delivery.

Frequently Asked Questions about Care Packages

Can I order a care package for someone who does not live on campus?

Yes, we will coordinate with the student via their @huskers.unl.edu email address, which you will be asked to provide when you place an order. They will be asked to pick up their care package at the Herbie's Market at Cather during their regular business hours.

Do you deliver to students living off campus?

No, we do not deliver to off-campus residences. The list of on-campus residence halls can be found on the University Housing website.

How early should I place an order?

We ask for a minimum of ten (10) business days between the date your order is placed and when you would like it to be delivered. This provides our team ample time to prepare your order and get it to the recipient in a timely fashion.

How will a student know their Care Package has been delivered to pick it up?

Students will be notified of delivery via their @huskers.unl.edu email address from housing@unl.edu. They should monitor their email for package notices or check their front desk for care package deliveries.

If I have questions/concerns about care packages, who can I contact?

Please reach out to carepackages@unl.edu or unlnrhh@unl.edu.
