Preserve the Campanile for generations to come

Support the renovation of our campus icon



Standing at the center of campus, the Campanile has served as a living memorial to all that we hold dear: an expression of our joy, our love and our pride for UNI. As the Campanile nears its 100th anniversary, it is due for care. Through necessary improvements, we can preserve the Campanile legacy and create lasting memories for future Panthers. With your support of the Campanile, you’re adding your name to a long lineage of dreamers across generations who have made this campus icon what it is today: a symbol of our shared UNI experience.

Revive the Campanile

The project consists of two main components: restoring the carillon and reviving the Campanile plaza.

Restore the Carillon

/  Renew and improve our carillon
/  Secure technology to live-cast performances
/  Upgrade interior for players

Revive the Campanile Plaza

/  Rejuvenate overgrown landscaping with new landscape design
/  Improve infrastructure to provide enjoyment of the Campanile for years to come

Fundraising Goals

With these necessary investments, we can ensure the Campanile stands strong for another century for all of campus and the community to enjoy.

$2.2 million  /  Total project cost for carillon and Campanile improvements as well as redesigned and improved plaza 

+ $400,000  /  Once the capital fundraising goal is met, we will seek endowment investments to support ongoing maintenance and seasonal concerts by professional carillonneurs


The Campanile plaza is a fixture of the UNI experience. Your support will help revitalize this high-traffic area and redesign the plaza to showcase the Campanile.
