Our Story

Live the UNI Experience

Welcome to our Community
The University of Northern Iowa Housing and Dining department provides an all-inclusive campus living experience, engaging and supporting students from the day they move in to their new UNI home.

Mission and Diversity Statement

Find Your Place
With a mix of traditional, suite-style and apartment-style residence halls with single and double rooms, students are sure to find a place to call home while attending UNI. Residence halls are open for residents to reside 24/7/365 - they do not close over breaks or during the summer.

Live and Learn Together
Residential Communities in each of our residence halls provide social and academic opportunities through interaction with faculty, advisors and resident assistants. Residence hall floors are focused on developing welcoming communities and vibrant student life on campus.

Eat Well
Recognized in 2016, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 as the #1 Best College Food in Iowa, students are never far from getting something great to eat at one of our many dining and retail locations across campus. Students that eat together, stay connected together.

Lead with Purpose
We attract, develop and retain a diverse group of collaborative and supportive leaders with the same end goal in mind: student success. In addition, our resident students are also a diverse group of passionate leaders and are committed to fostering an inclusive on-campus experience. Residence Life student leaders include Resident Assistants, RHA and NRHH executives, and Hall Senate.
