Housing and Residence Life
Housing and Residence Life is dedicated to student learning inside and outside of the classroom by creating unique communities for students to call home in the residence halls and on-campus apartments. Office staff, Resident Directors, Resident Advisers & Community Advisers work to make a difference in the lives of the students with whom they interact.
Residence Hall Advanced Payment
Students who are new and returning to residence halls need to pay their $200 advanced payment as soon as possible to secure their room assignment. To do so, log into your MyNMU account. New students choose the Admitted to NMU tab, and click the second link under the Housing section. Returning students open their e-bill under the Student Services tab. Once the e-bill is open, click Deposits at the top of the page, choose the Fall 2017 term, then Residence Hall.

NMU requires all single undergraduate students to live in the residence halls during their first two years of enrollment. Learn more about the housing requirement and why it is so important for students to have this on campus experience.
We are in the process of constructing our new residence hall complex, The Woods. See renderings, floor plans, and a live feed of the construction here!
