Life on Campus

WELCOME TO UNI

It All Starts Here

Home. The UNI campus is where journeys begin, discoveries are made and lifelong friendships are formed.

Small enough to feel right at home, but jam-packed with all of the culture, art and entertainment you’d expect in a big city – our campus is a hub of excitement just waiting to be explored.

Catch a Broadway show at the Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center, attend a lecture by a nationally-recognized speaker, conquer the indoor rock-climbing wall at the Wellness Recreation Center or cheer on the Division I Panthers.
