Campus Living

At North Central College, living on campus gives you instant access to countless experiential learning opportunities outside of the classroom. 

Housing Options


There are over 1,400 resident students living on campus in one of our 9 residence halls. There are traditional style rooms, as well as suites and apartments that residents can choose from based on their needs and preferences. Residence Life staff members offer additional support to residents to encourage academic success and personal well-being. Through intentional programming, residents are able to build lasting friendships, learn about campus resources, and connect with the campus community.

Resident students can apply to be a part of one of these communities and we hope to continue to add new LLCs in the future.
