Bender Hall

Welcome to Bender Hall.

Bender Hall, part of the “Towers”, was built in 1969 and stands 12 stories tall on the north side of campus. One of UNI’s traditional residence halls, it houses mostly first-year students in double rooms with a roommate and is home to First-Year Experience and Returner Residential Communities. Meal plans are required for students who live in Bender Hall with easy access to Rialto dining center and Towers Center, as it is connected by skywalk. (Please note that for safety reasons, air conditioners cannot be installed.)

Residential Communities

First-Year Experience


‌These communities house first-year students (new to college) and help enhance entering students’ transition to UNI while creating a peer reference group, academic experience and enhancing students’ academic and social success.




‌These communities provide an opportunity for our returning, second-year+ students to interact with other upper division students, live in a supportive environment and collaborate in their studies.
