Spring On-Campus Housing


The residence halls and Northern View Community apartments are great places to find your niche on campus. Whether you are a new first-year, transfer or a returning upper class student, you'll find that life on campus is both convenient and full of new opportunities to get engaged at NIU!

Why live on campus in the spring?

Your one-semester contract starts in January and ends in May.

No 12-month lease to worry about. You'll get to move in in January and move out in May.

Dining, internet, and utilities included.

Your room rate includes unlimited all-you-care-to-eat dining at locations across campus, NIU Wireless (up to 100 Mbps), and utilities. In most cases you can use financial aid to help cover housing and dining fees.

Safety, security and staff on call 24/7.

On-campus residents enjoy the security that NIU OneCards and controlled door access provide, and our highly trained staff are available 24/7 in each community.

You're already close to your classes. No more hunting for parking.

Many residents walk or bike to class. Or you can take the 2L and 2R bus routes that stop at every residence hall.
