We're looking forward to welcoming you to campus.
We're taking many steps to prioritize your health and safety, including:
There are three steps to this process:
Students who have positive test results will not be permitted to move-in to their campus residence until they have been released from their isolation period by their primary care provider and/or local health authority. Housing and Residential Services will assist the student in re-scheduling their move-in date and time.
Students who are told by their testing agency that they cannot receive a hard copy/electronic copy of their results, or are having other concerns with the testing process should contact the NIU Center for Student Assistance at firstname.lastname@example.org or call them at 815-753-8300 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
To ensure the well-being of our community, we advise you to follow CDC guidelines in the weeks before you arrive on campus. This includes:
You must take a COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test before you can move into your room.
You can move in on the following dates:
Up to two family members can help you move in. Everyone must wear face coverings and practice social distancing. Volunteers will not be available to help with move-in this year.
We're working to reassign students from double rooms into singles. Though you won't be sharing a room with your roommate this fall, we'll try to place them on the same floor or in the same residence hall as you.
If you planned to be in a double room with a roommate, the person who submitted their signed contract first will stay in the original room. The other person will be relocated, possibly to a different hall due to space limitations.
If you live in a suite or mini-suite, you'll have your own bedroom and share common spaces with another student.
If you live in a two- or three-bedroom unit at Northern View, you'll have a roommate or roommates. Each person will have their own bedroom.
You'll pay the double room rate for your single room. If we reassign you to another hall with a higher double room rate, you'll need to pay that higher amount. Compare room rates.
If you don't want to live on campus and already signed a contract, you can request a release from your contract. You may have to pay a cancellation charge:
If you haven't signed a contract, you can request an exemption to the residency requirement.
