Residential Life

Northwestern University has a unique system of residential life. In all Northwestern residence halls, there will be a Resident Assistant (RA) to assist you and answer your questions. RAs are undergraduate students who are employed by the university to maintain safety and promote hall community. They are a great resource and are always happy to talk with you

Visit the Residential Services website for additional information about moving in, living with a roommate, resolving conflicts, and submitting a maintenance request.
