The most important day at UNI is tomorrow.

Homecoming 2022 is the kickoff to UNI's bolder, more ambitious fundraising campaign to create a brighter tomorrow for future Panthers. And it all begins Homecoming weekend at the heart of our campus — the Campanile.

A Celebration at the Campanile

For nearly 100 years, the Campanile has served as a living memorial to our shared UNI experience. A major renovation of the Campanile will begin with the casting of nine new bells for the carillon. Join us Friday, October 7, to celebrate the renovation kickoff.

  • Free concert at Campanile plaza
  • Food and drinks will be available for purchase.

Stay for Saturday’s Homecoming traditions and make lasting memories with your Panther family!
