Housing Forum

The Northwestern Housing Forum was created jointly by the Office of the Provost and the former General Faculty Committee (now the Faculty Senate) to provide an opportunity to exchange information between Northwestern faculty and staff members who seek or want to publicize available housing.

If you are a prospective, current, or visiting faculty member or a member of the Northwestern staff, you are welcome to peruse the listings. If you would like to add a post about available housing, please submit a form. The website should be used only for available housing near the Evanston or Chicago campuses. Please note that arrangements regarding the use of such housing are private transactions between individuals, and the University is not a party to those matters. The University neither warrants the accuracy of postings nor endorses them.

Visit the Northwestern Housing Forum website

If you have any questions about this service, please contact facultyhousing@northwestern.edu.

Employment Assistance for Faculty Spouses/Partners

Northwestern has partnered with the Greater Chicago Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (GC HERC), which includes other area educational institutions such as the University of Chicago, University of Illinois at Chicago, Argonne, and Fermilab.  Through the sharing of information and resources, the GC HERC supports its member institutions in attracting outstanding faculty, administrators, and staff, with a particular focus on assisting dual-career couples. GC HERC contains a web-based search engine that includes listings for both faculty and staff jobs at all member institutions and is available at no charge to anyone seeking employment in higher education. The search engine allows users to link two profiles and find jobs that match both search criteria.   

Northwestern Career Advancement invites all faculty and their spouses/partners to attend any career-related events and programs on both the Evanston and Chicago campuses.  In addition, spouses and partners can contact NCA for a consultation appointment with the Executive Director.  Please have your academic department office email Mark Presnell, the Executive Director of Northwestern Career Advancement, to request arrangements on your behalf.
