Living on Campus is AWESOME!

Home » Naturopathic Medicine Student Blog » Living on Campus is AWESOME!

I have lived on campus for about two years. I have absolutely loved it, and greatly appreciate the fact that National University offers on campus student housing. When I first decided to come to school here, I was hoping I would live on campus. Then I found out there was a waiting list and became worried that I wouldn’t have the opportunity. Luckily, there was a two-bedroom apartment available for me. I really loved living in a two-bedroom, but decided to move into a studio apartment this trimester to save a little money. I didn’t want to get a roommate, so this was a good solution.

I love my studio! I can honestly say, now that I have lived in two separate buildings and apartments on campus, I highly recommend living on campus. They allow dogs (under 40 lbs.) and cats, which works really well for me and my pup Lily. She loves to sit outside by the lake and stare at the swans while I study. When the weather is bad, I greatly appreciate being able to walk to class without worrying about traffic or road conditions.

I don’t even own a car since I live on campus. That being said, it does present its challenges sometimes. However, there is a grocery store right next door, and Uber works great for other trips. Most of the time I have my groceries delivered directly to my door (love AmazonFresh!).  So, if you are considering living on campus and can’t decide, I highly recommend giving it a try.  The housing and maintenance staff is amazing, and will be able to answer any questions you have.

My name is Belinda, but I prefer to go by Lindy. I am in my final year as a Naturopathic Medical student at National University of Health Sciences. I’m originally from Maryland and will always consider it to be my home. I live on campus, in the Bucholz building with my dog, Lily. I love the sport of triathlon and will totally geek out if anyone wants to talk bikes or racing with me! I’m looking forward to blogging about study tips, ways to have fun on campus, and all the details of a full-time medical student. I love talking with people, so if you have any questions please email me at [email protected]
