Funding Sources


Residence Activity Fee

A student activity fee of $6 per semester is included in residence hall room and meal contracts. Of that amount $1 goes to a group of system-wide organizations: The Residence Leadership Council; the UNI chapter of the National Residence Hall Honorary; delegations to the annual conferences of the National Association of College and University Residence Halls and Midwest Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls; and the Programming Board. The rest goes to each hall’s senate, as their Social Programming Account.

Social Programming Accounts

The total amount of the Social Programming Account for each hall is determined by the number of residents who live there. That count is taken once each semester.  The Hall Treasurer and Coordinator manage the day-to-day use of the funds, once the hall senate determines the distribution between the Senate and houses.

How to Spend the Money

The hall treasurer is responsible for notifying the hall executives and RAs about the amount of their semester’s budget and status of their account.
Check with your Residence Life Coordinator or Hall Treasurer regarding the best processes to spend money.
