Hello, and thank you for your interest in the Northwestern University Guest Rooms.

1856 Orrington, which is the building that housed our guest rooms, is being used as the temporary home for The Black House, while it undergoes an extensive renovation. It is an exciting time for our students and campus as the renovation kicks off, but it does mean that we are no longer able to offer guest rooms for our students to reserve for family and friends. Please visit Chicago’s North Shore for other housing options in the area.

About Guest Rooms

Northwestern University has a limited number of guest rooms on campus, for guests of students and University departments. Guest rooms are only available during the academic year when classes are in session. The cost is $80 per night. Rooms are paid for through a student account or departmental chart string. Cash, check, and credit card are not accepted.

Please note that guest rooms must be reserved at least one week prior to the requested dates. They are for short-term stays only.
