Incoming Undergraduates

Welcome to Northwestern! We are excited to welcome you to campus in September. 

Here are a few important steps to be aware of:

  • Submit your housing deposit to gain access to the housing contract
    • The timing of your housing deposit does not provide an advantage for receiving your top preferences, but you must submit your housing deposit to gain access to the contract and by June 1
  • Between March 1 and June 1, go to the housing portal to submit your housing preferences and contract, along with any roommate and housing accommodation requests. 

What can you do now?

Students have so much to look forward to before arriving on campus, especially the residential experience. While perusing these pages, keep in mind that there is no rush to make decisions. Look things over. Come back to them in a few days.

  • Have you thought more about the type of room you're interested in?
  • Have you checked the room rates for the different room types and buildings you're considering?
  • What questions haven't occurred to you but might be important to think through?
