New undergraduate students, both entering freshmen and transfer students, apply for housing at Northwestern University as part of an integrated admission process.
If you are admitted to Northwestern, you will be asked to confirm your intent to enroll by paying a non-refundable $400 tuition deposit. After this deposit is received, you will then be asked to pay a second non-refundable $200 housing prepayment if you requested and have been granted campus housing.
The Office of Undergraduate Admissions will contact you via e-mail on how to pay your housing prepayment online. Please pay attention to the deadline!
Housing application materials, including descriptions of Northwestern's residence halls and residential colleges, and the online application form, will be made available on this web site.
You must complete the online application by June 7, 2013. When making arrangements for travel, etc., between the third week of May and June 7th, please ensure that you have a way to access the internet in order to complete this application.
Housing assignments, including the name of your residence hall, your room number, your telephone number, the rates for your assignment, and the name and address of your roommate(s), will be sent out to all new undergraduate students, via their Northwestern e-mail accounts, during the first week of August. That e-mail will include a link to the online Residence and Board Contract, which you must sign within two weeks.
You are encouraged to observe all of our prepayment and contract deadlines. Failure to meet these deadlines may result in the cancellation of your housing status.
If you have additional questions, you may call us at 847-467-4663, or send an e-mail to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
