Our Story

Live the UNI Experience

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

DOR 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.

Live and Learn Together
Living Learning 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 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, PAIRs, RHA executives and Hall Senate.
