Northern View Community Center

The Northern View Community Center houses a multipurpose room, game room, playroom, playground, and administrative offices. These rooms are currently open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. – 10 p.m. (play areas until 8 p.m.) and Saturday – Sunday 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. You can also reserve these areas for private use by filling out a request in the office.

There is also a 24-hour study lounge, a 24-hour computer lab, and an AnywherePrinter. Just swipe your NIU OneCard at the west door when the building is locked.

The Northern View Community Center also houses an NIU Police Community Safety Center, providing the convenience of NIU Officer presence right in the Northern View community.


The multipurpose room, game room, kitchen and playroom may only be reserved by Northern View staff and Northern View residents for family-related events. Northern View residents can stop by the main office to find out about reservations.

These areas cannot be reserved by student organizations, but student organizations can find out about hosting an event at another residence hall.
