Live the UNI Experience. Live on Campus!

Students Talking in Panther Village 2019Choosing to live on campus affords students the full college experience. With a mix of traditional, suite-style and apartment-style halls, students will find the accommodations and lifestyle they're looking for as they transition through college, all while placing them in the center of university life.

Our residence halls give students easy access to the events and activities happening around campus, surround them with friends, offer learning beyond the classroom and of course make the walk to class that much shorter. Plus, they're never far from getting something great to eat at one of our award-winning dining centers. Living on campus helps ease the transition to college life, gets students involved and helps them feel connected, all while they earn better grades on their track to graduating in four years.

In fact, students who live on campus for at least two years graduate at a rate more than two times of those who live on campus for just one year. Understanding the importance living on campus has on a student's academic success, we offer the Live 2 Succeed program to all new, incoming students. As part of the program, students commit to living on campus for their first two years and in turn receive additional benefits, such as a Student Success Scholarship and priority room selection in year two. Students can sign up for the Live 2 Succeed program when filling out their housing contract.

Check out our Housing & Dining Guide to find out more. We hope to see you on campus soon!
