How do I apply?

The Employee Housing Application is entirely online and can be accessed through the My Housing portal of Eagle (found here).

  • Log in with your NU email and password.
  • From the dropdown menu “Applications,” select the “Employee Application.”
  • Complete the application fully; partial applications will not be accepted.
  • Once we have received your completed application, you will be placed on the waitlist and emailed a confirmation to your NU email address.

Waitlist Process:

The waitlist is prioritized for duplex and houses as follows:

  1. New incoming faculty
  2. Current faculty
  3. Staff

Undergraduate student needs are prioritized for the FIRS Family Housing before employee housing applications can be considered.

When a unit becomes available, the housing office will contact the first applicant on the waitlist with an offer letter. Offer letters are sent to the NU issued e-mail address. Upon acceptance of the offer, the resident must submit a $500.00 housing deposit to secure the placement. We cannot guarantee when a home will be available; please keep in mind that the waitlist can be a long process.

If you have any questions, please email us at housing@northwestu.edu.
