Residential Communities & Employment

Welcome from the Director

If your passion lies in helping college students define who they are, find purpose and meaning in their college experience, identify their values and beliefs, and embrace living in a diverse community, the path to your passion is at Northern Illinois University.

The Housing & Dining staff is a group of student affairs professionals who truly embrace the Core Values of NIU's Division of Student Affairs & Enrollment Management: student-centered service, partnerships focused on student learning, establishing an inclusive community, and actively building collaborative relationships. NIU allows you to work side-by-side with talented, committed student affairs colleagues; personally and professionally grow in your position; be a part of a dynamic work environment; and engage with a diverse student population.

This Web site will provide information that will guide you through the Housing & Dining professional staff application processes. Join us and pursue your passion at Northern Illinois University!
