Living On Campus
Northern Michigan University could be your home away from home. Whether you are a returning student or new to NMU, you will find that the experience of living in a residence hall community will add significantly to your college experience.
Our residence hall staff will help you achieve your academic goals, learn more about yourself, and deal effectively with the challenges associated with being a college student. You'll meet new people, build lasting friendships, and experience a positive, well-rounded community.
NMU's Housing Requirement
Northern Michigan University’s requirement for on campus residency is intended to provide students with a living environment rich with opportunities for personal growth and social development. Residence hall communities, primarily through the unique interpersonal environment and opportunities for involvement and participation, maximize opportunities for social involvement for students and it is that involvement that accounts for the contributions made toward the gains they experience.
NMU has a two year housing requirement for undergraduate students. Learn more about NMU's housing requirement here.
