Living in the Roos Community

The city is our campus!

With our location in the heart of a thriving metropolitan area, UMKC students have great opportunities to extend their learning beyond the classroom and into the Kansas City community.  From internships at companies that are regionally and nationally known, to research opportunities in community organizations, our location gives our students an edge.  UMKC is also home to the internationally recognized Supplemental Instruction program, which was developed right here on campus more than 40 years ago to provide academic support to students in some of the more challenging college classes.  To ensure you get the most out of college, there are numerous opportunities to engage with faculty in research and participate in a number of leadership development programs.  From our residential life to Greek Life to a wide range of student organizations, there are multiple ways for you to become involved at UMKC and find success!
