We're moving to Lincoln in August and thinking about renting a townhouse or condo so the outside maintenance is taken care of. Ideally, we'd liike 3 bedrooms, a garage and even a basement. And we're not students so we don't want to be in a heavily student housing complex. Any suggestions? I'll be working at UNL if that helps location-wise.

Don't have any specific suggestions as I have never lived in Lincoln, but you can always check out the Journal star for listings:

Thanks. We've been looking at the ads but it's hard to tell what kind of neighborhoods they are in. I was hoping someone familiar with Lincoln might have some ideas about complexes that are nice.

suebb - I live in Lincoln so as tpabes said above, if you give me an address, I can tell you about the neighborhood.
In general, you're not going to want anything close to UNL. (Are you going to work at the main campus or east campus?) It's either full of students or not a very good neighborhood. Directly south of "O" street (which is the main vein of Lincoln and only a few blocks south of the main campus) can be pretty iffy.
Do you want a more upscale neighborhood? Middle class? What price range are you thinking? How close to campus do you want to be?

Thanks for the help. You are right I don't want to live in the middle of student housing. I am going to be working at the main campus. Price range: Anywhere from $800 per month to $1200 (tops!). Ideally I'd like to be fairly close to campus. Here are some locations I saw advertisements for:
a townhome at 22nd and Pine Lake
a townhome at 84th and Holdredge
a house at 46th and Van Dorn
a house near Leighton and 67th
40th and Old Cheney
and 7321 N. 17th St.
Any advice on any of those?

See if a Pheonix Properties is still around, they used to have condos.

And if they aren't try looking here. Live Search Local: Condominiums & Townhouses near Lincoln, Nebraska

Alot of these are really new, nice areas. 46th and Van Dorn will be a little older, but still a good area. 67th and Leighton will be the oldest area, but still not a bad area. 22nd and Pine Lake area, you will be 5 blocks from South Point Pavillions and all the shopping that goes along with it, so it could be that nice to be that close to shopping, while far enough away that you won't get all the traffic.

I consider 84th and Holdredge a good location...anyway I live close by and I like it. We have a new Hy-Vee grocery store (opened in March) with a few new businesses popping up. A new Wal-Mart will open in September that will be located couple of miles north on 84th street.
