Northwestern University
Dining Arrangements
Transportation Arrangements
Northwestern Unversity
On May 31, John Evans, Grant Goodrich, Henry W. Clark, Andrew Brown, Orington Lunt, Jabez Botsford, Richard Haney, Richard H. Blanchard, and Zadoc Hall met to establish a university under the assistance of the Methodist Church.
1851 (Founded)
John Evans and the eight other businessmen, lawyers and Methodists leaders founded Northwestern to serve the Northwest Territory- an area that now includes the states of Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan and parts of Minnesota.
16 presidents have been in charge of Northwestern in the years since.
Northwestern University-
A Private Institution/School
A Co-ed school/institution
Founded by strong Methodists, but later it wasn't affiliated with the Methodist church.
Located in Evanston and Chicago in Illinois
Evanston= 240-acre campus (Main campus)
Chicago= 25-acre campus
Operates on a quarter system, (Fall, Winter, and Spring Quarter) and students have finals three times a year. There is also a Summer Session where students take their summer classes.
Housing Options
14 Traditional Residence Halls
11 Residential Colleges
2 Residential Communities
Traditional Residence Hall
There are 14 traditional residence halls on campus.
Ranging from residences with as few as 11 students to larger residences with more than 500.
Each building has its own character, spirit, and unique advantages.
There is a building and a style to fit just about everyone’s preference in living style
Residential Colleges
There are 11 residential colleges on campus, ranging from 40 to nearly 300 students.
Some have a single unifying theme such as international studies while others are multi-thematic.
Each college is headed by a faculty member who serves as the Faculty Master. Masters and student officers recruit faculty members for the fellows program, which supports faculty presence through meals in the college, presentations known as “firesides,” and outings around campus and Chicago.
Residential Communities
There are 2 residential communities on campus; located at Allison Hall and Elder Hall.
These communities focus on student engagement, student-driven programming, and live-in faculty involvement while providing students with a comfortable place to live, learn, and grow
Special Interest Housing
Special interest housing is for students who choose to live with others who share a special academic or personal interest.
A special interest housing group may be located on a wing of a residence hall or have “exclusive use” of a small house.
The following are special interest housing options within University Housing:
My dilemma is that i am not able to study or focus on my assignments, because my roommate is constantly having company over.

My plan is to politely ask if she could meet with her friends somewhere else. If she continues to bring in company while I am trying to study, then I plan to move to a different room.
Because I am a freshman, I will have to wait until the first day of classes of Winter Quarter to officially have a room change.
Until then, since I already live in the Jones Residential College, I will fill out a waiting list to request a room change- within the Jones Residential College.
On the waiting list, I plan to specify that I request the room type to be a double.
It holds 121 students
It's available to all undergraduate students
It has room types of Single and Doubles- open suite style
And both men and women live in suites that are clustered by gender
I have been assigned to
JONES Arts Residential College.
I have been assigned one roommate- in the room type of a double
And it has a(n)-
Performance Room
Small Theater
Arts and Crafts Studio
Dance Studio
Music Practice Rooms
Computer Lab
And a Kitchenette
Gender Open Housing
Allows students, regardless of sex, gender, or gender identity, to share a room or suite in select areas of our residence halls.

Open Housing is not intended- and in fact
is highly discouraged- for romantic couples.
A community of students interested in living sustainably and being actively engaged with the world around them.

Residents of GREEN House do service together, install efficient infrastructure in the house, and educate others about their impact on the planet as Northwestern students and as citizens of the world.
Substance-Free Housing
The use of alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, and other forms of smoking materials is not permitted.

Residents and their guests are not allowed to return to the residence under the influence of or in possession of any prohibited substances
Interfaith Hall
Builds religious awareness within the hall and in the Northwestern community at large.
Residents represent diverse religious traditions.
3) Once all housing prepayments have been made, the next step will be to fill out the online housing contract. You may list your building and roommate preferences; or if you know who you want to be your roommate, you may add your roommate’s name. This contract will be made available on the Residential Services website on May 1, 2014, at 5:00 PM. This application must be completed by June 2, 2014, at 5:00 PM. Once you’ve made all prepayments and after you have completed the online housing contract then CONGRATS! You contracted for a space in housing!
4) Freshmen will participate in the online self-assignment room selection process in late June and early July and know their assignment and roommate information immediately after choosing their room. For those who choose not to participate in the self-selection process, Residential Services will send an email to the Northwestern email account of those students containing the room assignment and roommate information by the first week of August.
This Residence and Board Contract establishes a legal, binding agreement between Northwestern University and the student for use of assigned space and facilities.
The Contract does not guarantee assignment to a particular type of accommodation (room or apartment) or assignment to any preference indicated by the student. Student's preferences are requests only - room, apartment, occupancy, and University's granting of roommate requests cannot be guaranteed.
Contract for 2015-16 Undergraduate Housing
Requesting a Roommate
Changing a Roommate
Items I Can and Cannot Bring
Electrically or battery-operated or any other items that are considered by the University to be a safety or health hazard- are not permitted.
For example; washers, dryers, ceiling fans, dishwashers, pace heaters, treadmills, large appliances, etc.
No animals of any kind are allowed on campus.
Any personal belongings that are not considered a safety or health hazard are permitted.
Students can add themselves to waiting lists for up to 3 buildings, and can specify what type of room (i.e. a single or a double) that they wish to wait for. If you wish to move with a specified roommate, you should both turn in room change paperwork together.

You should fill out a waiting list request form even if your asking to change rooms within the same building, or are planning on a mutual room swap with another student.
Curfew or Visitor Restrictions
I may not have any overnight guest staying in my room except such guest as (a) be of my sex and (b) first be officially registered as an overnight guest which in no event may be without written approval of all my roommates.
Establishing quiet hours. The students in each residential housing deter­mine their quiet hour standards at the beginning of each academic year. Using either a hand vote or secret ballot, students may determine quiet hours for their area; however, the hours cannot be less than

Midnight to 8:00 a.m., Sunday through Thursday nights and
1:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., Friday and Saturday nights.

Additionally, during finals weeks, all residents are expected to comply with 24 ­hour quiet hours.
Although voting may be done on a floor basis, voting for the whole building is highly recommended.
Residents are also encouraged to create quiet hours for lounges and public areas in close proximity to student rooms.
Defining quiet hours. Quiet hours identify times when quiet is essential and required. Generally, during quiet hours, any noise that prevents a resident (who is in his/her room with the door closed) from sleeping or studying is unreasonable.

Once you have been admitted into Northwestern University and have been accepted into one of the six undergraduate schools, you will receive your schedule.
Northwestern University will tell you which dormitory you have been assigned to and let you know what financial arrangements are offered.
The undergraduate school that you have been accepted into will hand you the courses you have to take along with your schedule. They will also give you the Undergraduate Student Handbook- telling the rules and regulations of that undergraduate school.
