Choose Your Campus Living

dormYour home at Northern Michigan University will be just that: Your home. Your space. Your place. The perfect expression of you — and your roommate. 


Learn about housing options at the Housing and Residence Life website. NMU offers 10 residence halls, each with a unique opportunity, and on-campus apartments for upper classmen. Whatever you choose, Northern will indeed be your home away from home. 


Reserve your room online at  or through your MyNMU account. A few weeks before move-in, we'll let you know which of the 10 residence halls (made up of smaller communities we call "houses") or on-campus apartments will be your home. Learn more about NMU's housing requirements at

If you want to live with someone you already know, just tell us and we can take care of it. If your preferences change over the coming months, no problem. Just return to the online residence hall application and change them.


Connect with your roommate and start to design your space. Check out the list and talk with your roommate before you move in to make sure you don't end up with two couches and no TV. 

Your life at NMU won't include a room that feels lonely and cold. Instead, you'll find yourself in a vibrant place full of friends. You can start planning your room today with our interactive residence hall room.
