CHANGING CHOICE!

Location

You can find the college in the Historic Florence District, the oldest community of Omaha, Nebraska. After ten years of being in the Dundee area at 50th and Dodge, the College relocated to its present location of 8702 N 30th Street Omaha, NE 68112, in December of 2005. 


This Florence District of Omaha has more historic sites and historical markers per square mile than any other Nebraska area. At the corner of 30th and Clay Street. The College building is a completely remodeled, 12,500 square foot brick building originating in the 1920s. The facility offers a full massage and bodywork clinic with several private treatment rooms, business offices, classrooms, and even a fully equipped gymnasium.  The building also contains a Conference Center used both for movement classes and regional workshops.

There are an extensive library and full internet access throughout the building. Also, there is a student lounge and kitchen area with two refrigerators and cooking appliances. The entire campus is wheelchair accessible, and there is plenty of new parking in the area. The campus grounds offer a large organic Community Garden enjoyed by students and their families.

The College is just three blocks south of Interstate 680. This would be the last exit (#13) before the Missouri River's Mormon Bridge or the first exit entering Nebraska from the
East (Iowa).


UCHA offers a list from its neighborhood of affordable overnight accommodations. This is for the Hellerwork and Massage Therapy students living outside the Omaha region.


UCHA makes no claims to the conditions of the accommodations. UCHA is not responsible or liable for the choice of accommodation.

Accreditations

Accredited colleges in the US meet the standards of a recognized reviewing agency. Accrediting agencies are private educational associations recognized by the government. These agencies develop criteria and conduct evaluations to determine if a particular college meets the required standards.

Universal College of Healing Arts has institutional accreditation from ABHES, the Accrediting Bureau for Health Education Schools, for the
Massage Therapy/Blended Diploma Program, the Associate’s Degree Program, and the Hellerwork Structural Integration Practitioner
Program.  The ABHES Outstanding Achievement Award was presented to the college on February 27, 2015. ABHES is a non-profit, a national accrediting agency recognized by the US Department of Education to institutionally accredit private institutions offering programs that are predominantly in the allied health field.  UCHA considered other accreditations but felt this best represented what UCHA was all about, focusing on health education.
