3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Around campus its okay. Don't expect the greatest, unless you are well off. If you have enough money there are some great locations.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: UMKC is right off of the Plaza, and the Plaza has multiple places to eat.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: You have to find parties. If you join greek life you will find parties, but if not then find people who are like minded and like to go to parties. Kansas City is a great place to go to for night life, but most of it happens when you are 21 in the Power and Lights district.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: If you live in the dorms you are required to get a meal plan, which can suck but oh well. The menu is posted on the site, but the food does seem to pop back up often. If you are okay with the meals and don't mind eating it everyday great. A tip I would give is watch your meal plan. I ran out of meals about 3/4 into the semester last year, so I would suggest everyone get the block 15 meal plan. Just eat the caf twice a day every day and you will be fine. There is a couple of decent priced places around campus such as Kin Lin (Chinese), Subway, and Chipotle.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing is good. The Oak dorms are the closest to the cafeteria and all classes, so that is where a majority of students stay. On the other hand Johnson Hall is the nicest in terms of dorm life. After your freshman year you are allowed to move into the school's apartments which are great. In terms of social atmosphere there isn't a whole lot going on unless you are in greek life. Just a side note, greek life isn't the biggest here so don't expect big D1 college parties, but none the less you will have fun. Housing is easy to set up and you are allowed to switch roommates about three weeks into each semester.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Its okay if you go with friends.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I could have applied to more but most of them I didnt meet the requirements.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dining Hall food is terrible and it seems like the put little effort into preparing it.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is not much of a party scene but I am okay with that because I am more of a study-focused student.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I am a transfer and was not allowed to receive any scholarship due to the fact that I transferred with less than 48 hours. WHO TRANSFERS FRESHMAN YEAR WITH 48+ HOURS?!

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: I wish the hours were more flexible and the food was more variable. Sometimes I do not feel that it is fully cooked or okay to eat. The to-go meals are pretty good.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living on campus! The dorms are wonderful and spacious.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm a non-traditional student but I find the school blends well with other students such as myself. This school has lots of commuters, living more than 30-45 minutes from campus.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Lots for nice dinning options in the Plaza and Westport are, just minutes from walking and/or driving.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Need more healthy options that don't involve going to the cafeteria.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: UMKC have a lot of off-campus housing so there is a lot of options for everyone and there always really cheap.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is a lot of food places around UMKC but these places close around 10pm and the fast food places you have to have a car so you can go through the drive thru.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I think that University of Missouri Kansas City have the perfect strickness when it comes to things around campus.

Campus Food: I really think that the food is good but eating it so much makes it nasty.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I liked loved living on campus because there is so many events that happens on campus that you would only know about if you lived on campus. The dorms are really new so you never have to worry about them looking old or ugly. The cost of the dorms are high just because you are required to have a meal plan but other than that its perfect!

College Freshman

Administration: I have only been here a semester

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: More experience will come later

College Freshman

Party Scene: Haven't been to one although being invited to quite a few
