Why live in the residence halls?

Residence halls are great places 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 & Dining 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.

You can sign up to live in Stevenson, Grant, New Residence Hall, Gilbert, Neptune, or Northern View Community. Not sure which hall is best for you? Compare the residence halls at NIU.
