The Robert V. Denney Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse is a modern, five-story steel structure in Lincoln, Nebraska. The building is named after the late U.S. District Court judge and U.S. House of Representatives member.

Built in 1974 the building is structured to accommodate almost any space need that a tenant requires. It provides 300,000 square feet of office space in the highly visible and trafficked Central Business District of downtown Lincoln.


All visitors must have a valid photo ID and pass through security screening (both building entrances). All items (including canes, medical devices, laptops, purses, postage items, etc.) will be X-rayed. All visitors, clients and delivery personnel will also be required to pass through a walk-through magnetometer prior to gaining access to the building.
