Jump Start Living Community

Are you signed up for Jump Start?


Are you living on campus?


If you answered YES to both questions than consider living in the Jump Start Residential Community!


This residential community is for both first year and transfer students!


Students living in the Jump Start residential community will have the opportunity to continue the relationship-building and programming started during participation in the Jump Start extended orientation program. Jump Start is designed to facilitate the successful transition of under-represented students to UNI, specifically students from racial and ethnic minority groups, students from low-income and/or first generation backgrounds, and/or students with disabilities. Participation in the Jump Start extended orientation program is required.
