We suggest you bring an additional blanket for cooler nights. The beds in Northwoods apartments are full size; the beds in the residence halls are twin extra-long. The College does not provide televisions nor telephones; however, all rooms have a cable TV and internet hook-up and wireless is available in all residential spaces.  

Apartments have four bedrooms with two shared bathrooms.  Apartments have a sofa, chair and coffee table, dining room table with chairs, and an “unfurnished” kitchen; there are no pots, pans, dishes, nor flatware.  Due to fire code, we are only able to have 4 adults per apartment.  No cots nor cribs are available for children, however children may share the full size bed with an adult. The beds in the Northwoods are raised so that our students are able to have storage space under the bed. If you have mobility concerns getting in and out of a raised bed, please choose the Residence Hall option, where the beds are normal height. Please click here for general photos and information on the The Northwoods Apartments.

Residence Halls have suite-style bathrooms. This means that up to four to six rooms share one bathroom, which includes two sinks, a toilet, and a shower with a door. Bathrooms are cleaned Monday-Friday. Please click here for photos and information on the Residence Halls.

If you have any concerns with getting around campus (restrictions walking and/or maneuvering stairs), we would suggest you choose a first floor room in the residence halls. There are no elevators in apartments nor in residence halls. Please note any restrictions on the registration form so we may best accommodate your needs. The residence hall is located closer to the dining hall and meeting spaces on campus than the apartments. The apartments do have stairs in them, and walking from the apartment to the main part of campus, you will encounter stairs and hills.  Additionally, the parking lot for the apartments is a short, one-minute walk. It’s less than a five-minute walk to the dining hall, and the classrooms and vendors are another minute or two beyond the dining hall. If you prefer no stairs and less walking, please choose residence hall accommodations.

Bathrooms: The residence halls in whole are not same sex. It is possible, depending on how the registrations come in between male vs. female, we may be able to do assignments by floor - one floor male, one floor female. More likely however, will be that we assign males to a suite and females to a suite - in either case, bathrooms would be single sex. The exception to this will be couples, and we would cluster couples together, not with single gender requests, and those rooms with couples would have a shared bath.

Please note:  The residence halls and apartments are strictly residential spaces; all business-type activity is prohibited. 

 Meals in the Murray-Aikins Dining Hall

The walk from the dining hall to the classroom and vendor building is an easy one-to-two minute walk. Additional meal tickets may be purchased for guests upon arrival. Door prices are listed below:

Additional information for those attending with children under the age of 18

There is a place on the registration to note the name and age of any children under 18 years-old who will be accompanying you in the residence hall or apartment. When choosing accommodations with children, please note that the child may share a full-sized bed in an apartment with an adult. Residence hall rooms have twin beds only. We do not have cots nor cribs available, and we do not supply linen for anyone under the age of 18. Guests under the age of 18 do not receive an ID/room key/meal card, and guests under 18 are not admitted into the Sports Center unless accompanied by an adult at all times.
