I’ve been living on campus since starting the ND program nearly three years ago. Recently, my husband and I moved from a one-bedroom unit to a two-bedroom unit. It was quite a process, as this was the longest we had ever lived in one place, not to mention it being a crazy time with midterms! Here’s a glimpse inside our empty unit.
Campus housing has efficiencies, studios, one- and two-bedroom units. For two people, I’d suggest at least a one-bedroom unit. It was a snug fit for the two of us, but we made it work. The main reason we decided to transfer into a two-bedroom unit was to have extra space for when family members visit.
The main things I love about living on campus are:
- no commute
- free internet
- better price compared to off-campus housing
- easy to run home if you forget something
- you can cook and eat lunch during the day
- studying at the library is convenient
- the lease is per trimester instead of annually
Thinking back to before I started the program, my name was on the campus housing wait list for several months. I found out about a month (or a little less) prior to the start of the trimester that there was a unit for us. If you’ve been accepted into any program at NUHS and if there’s the slightest possibility that you’d like to live on campus, contact Marilyn in the housing department sooner rather than later, because the wait list tends to be long.
