Dancer closing

Following the spring 2019 semester, UNI will be taking Dancer Hall temporarily offline for master planning purposes. This will allow the university to evaluate the building’s needs as part of its continuous efforts to provide the most desirable on-campus housing for students. This will have no impact on UNI's ability to provide housing for all students who wish to enjoy the benefits of living on campus.

Dancer 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 and is home to First-Year Experience and STEP Residential Communities, with a total of 11 houses. Dancer is a mixed gender hall, where students primarily live in double rooms with a roommate; however, both single and super single rooms are available. Meal plans are required for students who live in Dancer Hall. Dancer is connected to the Rialto dining center and Towers Center, with easy access to the WRC and the bus terminal. (Please note that for safety reasons, air conditioners cannot be installed.)
