Why live in the residence halls? They're a great place to meet new people and form lifelong friendships.
Living on campus provides many opportunities to meet people from different cultures, countries and ethnic backgrounds. When you live in an NIU residence hall, you have the ability to quickly become a comfortable, full-fledged member of the NIU community. Your residence hall is your new home, and the Housing and Residential Services staff is committed to providing you with a safe, supportive and educationally empowering residential community.
Living in an NIU residence hall enhances your college experience. Living-learning Communities let you live and socialize with other students who share your academic and career goals. Collaborative partnerships with faculty and student support services enable us to enhance your learning experience so that you can learn, grow and be successful within a complex and diverse world.
