Rainbow Reception

Rainbow Reception is the annual welcome back celebration of queer and trans life at UNI, taking place this year at the Maucker Union on Tuesday, August 22, from 5-7 p.m. 

All are invited to join us in celebrating LGBTQ+ community at UNI. We especially encourage new students to attend to learn about resources and meet peers. 

Reserve your table

Join us for Rainbow Reception August 22 from 5-7 PM in the Maucker Union. 

If your organization would like to host an informational booth at the Fall 2023 Rainbow Reception, please fill out this form by August 4.


  • Organizations will be asked to set up by 4:45 PM in Maucker Union, but can begin arriving at 4 PM
  • Organizations will be offered a 6 foot table and a chair by default, unless otherwise noted
  • Creative displays are encouraged and can be considered as well
  • Food and beverages will be provided at the event

Due to a limited amount of space, we will be prioritizing organizations that work directly with inclusion initiatives or resources impacting our LGBTQ+ students. Selected booths will be notified of acceptance no later than August 10. If we are not able to offer you a table, we would still encourage attendance for those that wish to celebrate our community to start the school year off on the right note.

For specific questions, please e-mail lgbt@uni.edu
