New Student Housing

Welcome to Northwest University Residence Life and Housing. We are so excited to welcome you to your new home! As you know, we are a residential campus with the belief that education is enhanced by the living-learning communities students experience when living on campus. It is proven that students who live on campus form lasting relationships and achieve a greater level of sustained learning and academic success. To facilitate this type of success, all full-time, unmarried, undergraduate students 25 and under are required to live on campus.

Read this Welcome Letter to find out some helpful information as you start the journey of registering for housing! We hope this will help make the process much more clear for you. 

Also, check out Roommate Connector – it is our internal tool to help you find a roommate. You can post a profile, check out others profiles and more. Once you have found your roommate, both individuals must email Don’t want to find a roommate yourself? No problem, we can do it for you!

We will be doing housing placements for incoming traditional students on June 17, July 1, July 22 and August 8. All roommate pairs must be sent in a day before each of these dates to be considered. Students must be registered for Fall 22 classes in order to receive a housing assignment.
