Jump Start Living Community


This residential community located in Noehren Hall gives Jump Start students the opportunity to continue building relationships started during the Jump Start extended orientation program. Jump Start is designed to facilitate the successful transition of students from underrepresented racial and ethnic backgrounds to UNI as well as TRIO or AVID participants. In order to live in the Jump Start community, students must participate in the Jump Start program and complete a housing contract. 



To complete a housing contract, please visit  and indicate that you would be interested in living in the Jump Start community. 


If you previously completed a housing contract and need to make changes, you can do so at  or by contacting Housing and Dining at 319-273-2333.
