Summer Housing

Are you looking for summer housing on campus?

We can help you! We offer students in need of summer living accommodations with affordable and convenient housing in our residential hall, New Hall West. To sign up for summer housing, all you need to do is complete the summer housing contract online. After your contract is finalized, you will be assigned a room by the Housing and Residential Services Office. Summer contracts will be available on March 21, 2022, at 9 a.m., and room assignments will be put in place by mid-April, for early contracts.

Northern Illinois University will continue to closely monitor activities and developments related to the spread and management of coronavirus (COVID-19) in coordination with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Illinois Department of Public Health and the DeKalb County Public Health Department. This could include required surveillance testing. More information will be shared with contracted students closer to the end of the spring semester.
