Please note that Northwestern does NOT offer housing on a 'first come, first served' basis. We want our new students to have a chance to look over all the information we provide online and take the time to make informed decisions regarding where they want to live. Please do not feel that you need to fill out the application the moment it becomes available online.
Housing assignments are sent to incoming freshmen during the first week of August, via your Northwestern e-mail account. The entire housing process, from application to assignment, will be an online process. Check your Northwestern e-mail account and Undergraduate Housing regularly for updates and information.
