Summer Housing

Attention Northern View Community Residents

If you are a spring resident of Northern View Community and would like to stay for the summer term (Saturday, May 1 through Friday, August 13) be sure to add the summer session. If you are moving into a different room for the fall, Housing and Residential Services staff will coordinate a change to your fall assignment. The date of the change is subject to apartment availability and will take place during the summer session.

Important note: if you are not returning for the fall semester, although you are still eligible for summer housing, you will need to move out by July 31 in order to accommodate the incoming fall resident.

If you are a current NIU student who will be moving into Northern View Community in the fall and are interested in moving in over the summer please email housing@niu.edu about possible options.
