Housing Handbook & Policies

Student Career Success Lives Here!

Welcome to the NIU Residence Halls and Dining Centers! At NIU, we take our mission seriously. To that end, we invite you to live and grow with us! It will make your residential experience a transformative one that puts you on the pathway for a successful journey.

In an effort to build safe, caring, inclusive communities in our residence halls, we provide you with this handbook that outlines the expectations for responsible behavior in our residential communities. In addition to residence hall policies, there are other resources available to you regarding housing procedures, housing contract terms and conditions, University guidelines, and technology support. These resources include:

  • Student Code of Conduct
  • ResTech Connections Technology handout you received when you moved into the residence halls
Additional information, as well as on-campus living news and updates, is available at the Housing & Residential Services website.

If you have questions concerning this handbook or any of the Housing & Residential Services policies and procedures, please consult your Community Advisor (CA) or Hall Director. They will be happy to assist you.

I hope that your residence hall experience will allow you to maximize your experience here at NIU and create wonderful memories and friendships that will last a lifetime.

In Huskie Pride,

Patricia A.R. Martinez
