You aren't just choosing a university. You're also choosing a place to call home. At NU, we are dedicated to creating a close, supportive, and safe community for all students. A place where you'll learn how to live life well with others. A place where you can thrive academically, spiritually, and socially. A place that feels like it was made just for you. Because it was.
Gray and Beatty offer a diverse community of first-year students and seasoned upperclassmen. The two independent buildings are joined together by a large lounge area that features a large-screen HDTV (great for movie nights) with Comcast Cable service, a pool table, and a small, private study room.
The beautifully renovated Gray/Beatty basement features an HDTV with surround sound speakers, a shuffleboard table, and a modern kitchen. This space can accommodate an entire floor of students for events.
Guy, Perks, and Crowder Halls (GPC) house both first-year students and seasoned upperclassmen throughout nine floors. The three independent buildings provide the following common areas for NU community use:
At NU, our residence hall rooms are created for comfort and functionality. Here is a list of what we provide each student:
Our student apartments are nestled in the woods on the upper east side of campus. They offer a more private and independent residential experience for upperclassmen. They consist of two- or three-bedroom units that are spacious, partially furnished, and include utilities.
The floors of all of our residence halls are separated by gender. Students must live on-campus for their first two years at NU: students 18–25 years old in residence halls, 21+ and junior status students are eligible to live in the student apartments. Pricing information for on-campus housing can be found in our Housing Price List.
A trained student leader called a Resident Assistant (RA) lives on each floor in all our residence halls and serves as a resource for residents. Our RA's are committed to walking with you throughout your university experience — and are trained to create an atmosphere where you can make friends, live responsibly, and create the memories of a lifetime!
Each apartment building has a trained student leader called an Apartment Representative (AR) living on site to serve as a resource for residents.
