Living and Eating

Campus Life

One of the reasons why international students choose NNU is because of the residential experience.  All incoming students—including international students—are placed in a residence hall by the director of residential life.  There are seven resident facilities, including traditional dorm rooms and apartment-style living.  Your room is equipped with everything you need to study and live comfortably.  All living areas include bathrooms, laundry rooms, internet access, phone lines, community lobbies, and bedroom furniture.  Cooking facilities are only available to students living in upper-classmen residence halls.  Every student is responsible for their own bed linens and personal items.  All residence halls are within a 10-minute walk of the sports center, student center, and academic classrooms.

You may have questions or concerns as valued residents on campus.  All residence halls have live-in staff:  Resident Directors (RD’s) and Resident Assistants (RA’s). RD’s are adult employees of NNU living on the main floor of the facility. RA’s are student staff living on the hall with students. They are both available for any and all questions and needs while living on camps (including maintenance, roommate issues, community living rules and dorm activities).

The student center and cafeteria are important gathering places for the NNU community.  All NNU students living on campus are required to purchase a meal plan.  Incoming international students may choose from one of two meal plans.  The platinum plan ($1,810.00/semester) allows you unlimited meals in the cafeteria, or the silver plan ($1,555.00/semester) allows you 200 meals per semester.  

The student center also includes important services and benefits such as:  campus bookstore, post office, coffee shop, career center, campus life offices, wellness center, and international student center.
