Campus Living

At North Central College, living on campus gives you instant access to countless experiential learning opportunities outside of the classroom. 

Housing Options

There are over 1,400 resident students living on campus in one of our 9 residence halls. There are community style rooms, as well as suites and apartments that residents can choose from based on their needs and preferences. Residence Life staff members offer additional support to residents to encourage academic success and personal well-being. Through intentional programming, residents are able to build lasting friendships, learn about campus resources, and connect with the campus community.

Living Learning Communities

The Office of Residence Life also offers Themed Housing and Living Learning Communities (LLCs) that are specialized living environments that are centered on a distinctive theme or academic interest area. Resident students can apply to be a part of one of these communities and we hope to continue to add new LLCs in the future. 

  • Honors Program LLC
  • Engineering & Physics LLC
