Experience Life on Campus

Community. Inclusion. Student Learning. Excellence.

Live Here

Living on North Central College’s campus offers the opportunity to engage in learning experiences outside of the classroom that foster relationship building and networking with fellow peers and campus leaders. The Office of Residence Life strives to meet student needs by implementing a student-centered approach in each residential community. Our residence life staff is here to help as you evolve throughout your college career and participate in our living learning communities, have questions about accommodations, and learn more about housing options!
