Prospective Students


If you are thinking about attending NIU you probably have many questions about your housing and dining options. You may be wondering where you'll live on campus and what amenities you'll have in your room. Or maybe you are trying to create a budget and you need to calculate the cost of living in a residence hall versus commuting from home or off-campus (note that there are restrictions for freshmen living off-campus).

After you've learned about your housing options, contact us with any questions. We want all of our students to feel like NIU is their home away from home. Our attentive and caring staff will give you the info you need to make the best decisions for your future.
