Services

Student services

Welcome to the Division of Student Affairs at UNI!  We provide connections and resources for students to be successful on their educational journey.  We aspire to develop partnerships that build a welcoming, equitable and engaging environment, and connect in-the-classroom learning with out-of-classroom opportunities.  By collaborating with others across the campus community, we challenge students to grow to their full potential.  Join us on this journey as we contribute to the development of students to become better leaders of today and better citizens of tomorrow. 

Housing services

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, the food court in Maucker Union, our cafe in Rod Library, a food cart or convenience store. Living on campus helps ease the transition to college life, gets students involved and makes them feel connected, all while they earn better grades on their track to graduating in four years.

Library services

Rod Library's many services and resources require the creativity and energy of dozens of faculty, staff, and student employees.  

ICT services

The mission of the IT Service Desk is to provide the University's students, faculty, and staff with a centralized point of contact for all supported products and services.
