Northern View Community

Take a look at Northern View Community!

Northern View Community offers mostly two-bedroom apartments with a limited number of one-bedroom and three-bedroom apartments.

Housing Options 
Northern View Community Buildings 2, 4, and 6, are known as the Family style buildings and have one, two, and three-bedroom units available. Here residents contract for the entire apartment, they are responsible for finding their own roommates, and are able to have non-NIU student dependents live with them, such as children, spouses and partners, so long as they fill out the appropriate paperwork.
Buildings 3 and 5 are open to all NIU students who are at least 20+ years old or two full years post-high school. Students contract for one bedroom in a single-gender two-bedroom unit, they are typically placed with a random roommate, and these buildings do not accommodate dependents.
Nine- and twelve-month contracts are available; see Northern View Community rates for specific information.
