NIU offers five residence halls ranging from the state-of-the-art New Residence Hall to the affordable Neptune Hall. Dining facilities are located in four of the five residence halls and meal plans are available. All residence halls have on-site laundry facilities.
The Northern View Community offers apartment-style housing for upper division students (at least 2 years past high school), graduate students, or students who have a partner or spouse and/or dependents.
You will receive a housing application after you are admitted to NIU. Be sure to fill it out and submit it, with your deposit, to NIU Housing & Residential Services in order to reserve your room. Because of the social and academic benefits on-campus living offers students, first-year students are required to live in a residence hall for the first full year.
