Parent Information

We are beyond excited to help provide your student with a safe, warm and welcoming environment here at NU. Our goal is to help your student develop the skills needed to make wise decisions, to take responsibility for their choices, and to live in a manner worthy of our calling as Christ-followers.

Roommate Conflicts

Your son or daughter should first talk with his or her Resident Assistant (RA) or Apartment Representative (AR) about roommate issues.  Our RAs and ARs are trained to respond to conflict and may be able to mediate the conflict.  If not, the RA/AR will certainly refer the situation on to his or her supervisor, an Area Coordinator (AC).

Student Conduct

The Dean of Student Development, along with the Area Coordinators and Director of Residence Life are responsible for judiciary sanctions in regards to conduct and campus discipline.  The Student Development office maintains all records with regard to violations of NU policy.  The Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) outlines the release of student records and may require us to notify your student that information about him/her has been shared with you.  In many cases, your student will need to approve the release of his/her records, however we reserve the right to contact parents.

Students will be encouraged at all levels of discipline to share the information with their parents.  Official notification of parents is at the discretion of each Student Development staff member up to the point of citizenship probation.  The parents of a student who has been placed on citizenship probation, suspended, or dismissed from school will be notified unless unusual circumstances exist.

Facilities and Maintenance

Students can and are encouraged to submit maintenance requests through the Eagle website as needed.   Area Coordinators monitor the maintenance needs of the halls and apartments for which they are responsible.
