You could also use a very handy and small bit of proc code hooked directly into your LOGIN entry or called from there:

001 PQ (or PQN)
002 M
003 Oyour_text_here+
004 IP #1
005 P
006 GO B

This code (M)arks an entry point, outputs whatever text you want while inhibiting any line feed, and waits for the user input, which is stored into the output buffer (IP #1) then executed (P), after which it loops back to the (M)ark point.

If it helps, I can assert with certainty that there is nothing in UniVerse that allows this.
It's easy enough to roll your own; a small BASIC program into which you trap your users.
CRT myprompt
INPUT command
WHILE command <> 'QUIT'
GOSUB processcommand
