Information about meal plans will be available later this summer. You can find out more information regarding dining on campus on the Dining Services web site. All freshmen living in on-campus housing have a 14-meal-a-week meal plan to start with, to insure that they can access the Dining halls immediately.
The housing contract is electronic, and the link to it is sent to you via your Northwestern email account. You sign it by entering your Student ID number where prompted on the contract, and clicking the submit button.
All students may stay in their room during both Thanksgiving Break and Spring Break. The residence halls close for Winter Break.
