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, guess what? It was.
Guy, Perks, and Crowder Halls
Guy, Perks, and Crowder Halls (GPC) house primarily first-year students throughout nine floors. The three independent buildings provide the following common areas for NU community use:
- Perks Lounge features a large-screen HDTV with Comcast Cable service, an air hockey table, a fireplace, and a large piano.
- Perks Hall also provides our student government (NUSG) members with office space, where they are available as a resource for fellow students.
- Crowder Lobby is a smaller lounge with comfy couches for studying or hanging out with friends.
- The GPC community kitchen provides a full kitchen, lots of counter space and tables for cooking or studying, comfortable couches, and a wall-mounted TV with DVD player.
- GPC also offers two private piano practice rooms.
Gray and Beatty Halls
Gray and Beatty offer a diverse community of 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.

Area Coordinators and Resident Assistants
Each residential community has a professional live-in staff member called an Area Coordinator, who serves as a resource for students, oversees RAs, and helps create a great student experience.
A trained student leader called a Resident Assistant (RA) lives on each floor in all our residence halls and in each building of the student apartments and serves as a resource for residents. Our RAs are committed to walking with you throughout your university experience — and are trained to create an atmosphere where you can make friends and create the memories of a lifetime!
