For security purposes, the exterior doors of the residence halls lock each night. After the doors lock, they can only be opened from the outside by a valid OneCard ID with proper security door access. Only students who live in that specific wing of the residence hall will be able to enter.
Students who are living in the residence halls automatically have security door access privileges set up on their OneCard ID by NIU Housing and Dining.
For more information regarding after-hours door access to the residence halls, please contact Housing and Dining at (815) 753-1525.
