If you do not wish to sign a contract online, you have the option of completing it by mail:

  1. Download and print your 2024-2025 contract (PDF)
  2. Review and sign the contract.
  3. If you are under 18, have a parent or legal guardian sign the parent/guardian section of the housing contract.
  4. Prepare a $150 housing prepayment as a check or money order made out to Northern Illinois University. If you are a fall applicant, you do not need to make a prepayment if you were living in the residence halls during the previous spring semester.
