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 over Spring Break.
Winter Break Housing will be available only to International students assigned to Foster-Walker Houses 5-8. International students must indicate on their Housing Contract that they need Winter Break housing and will be assigned to a space in the Foster-Walker complex (Houses 5-8) for the academic year. If you are not an International student, your belongings can stay in your room, but you need to find another place to stay over Winter Break.
Undergraduate residence halls will close at 12:00 noon on Saturday, December 13, 2014, and reopen at noon on Saturday, January 3, 2015. Winter Break Housing is available Friday, December 12- Friday, January 2, 2015. Residents who participate in Winter Break Housing will be charged extra for housing and meal plan service. This charge will be placed on your student account.
