Graduate Housing

Welcome, graduate students! We're excited that you've chosen NIU to continue your education and path to success. Because graduate programs can be very demanding, we believe that living in the residence halls will be one less worry for you.

By living in the residence halls, you'll always have easy access to campus. You'll also have a weekly meal plan, so you won't have to worry about groceries. We believe that Gilbert Hall, Stevenson Towers and Northern View Community would be a great fit for you as a graduate student. (If you live in Northern View Community, you do not receive a meal plan.)
