Main Campus Housing Residents

Welcome

Living on campus is part of the full college experience! Our staff is committed to making a living/learning center for our on-campus community. By planning programs, activities of interest, and by advising and counseling, we hope to assist you in your personal growth.

Your Resident Assistant (RA) is a helper; use him/her to help you in any number of ways. For example, they can help you solve a problem or answer a question about campus life, or help you become involved in educational and social activities at NSU.

You should fill out the Housing Contract Release Form for the following reasons:
  • You are moving out of housing mid-contract and leaving the institution*;
  • You are moving out of housing mid-contract but are remaining at the institution**;
  • Your contract terms have expired and you will not be returning to housing.

*Please review the guidelines for more information about cancellation fees.
**Please review the guidelines for more information about buyout fees and page 87 of the Student Handbook for information on the residency requirements.

Form and Guidelines

Parking Permits

There are two types of parking decals/permits available to residential students.  Main campus residential students can receive an Orange parking decal and Rolling Hills residential students can receive a Yellow parking decal.

For more information on Parking Permits, please view Public Safety's NSU Parking Permits page.


Main Campus Residential Parking (Orange)

  • Students living in Goodwin, Commons, Founders, Farquhar, Vettel, and Cultural Living Center can receive an Orange parking decal
  • Students with an Orange parking decal may typically only park in the residential lot surrounding the main campus residence halls
  • Students with an Orange parking decal may not park in the Rolling Hills residential lot
  • At no time should students with an Orange parking decal be parked in any of the other gated parking lots or garages on campus
  • For information on Overflow Residential Parking, please see below

Rolling Hills Residential Parking (Yellow)

  • Students living in Rolling Hills can receive a Yellow parking decal
  • During the day, students with a Yellow parking decal may typically only park in the residential lot surrounding the residence halls
  • Students with a Yellow parking decal may not park in the main campus residential lot
  • Between 5:00pm and 7:00am on Weekdays, students with a Yellow parking decal may park in designated lots on main campus

Overflow Residential Parking

In some instances, if the Office of Residential Life and Housing may determine that there is the potential that more students will bring their cars than there are spaces in the main campus residential lot.  In those instances, our office will work closely with Public Safety to find additional parking lots on campus for main campus residential students to park.  When this information is determined, it is distributed to residential students via their official NSU email addresses.


Residential Visitor Parking

There is no overnight visitor parking for the main campus residence halls.  Even during the weekend, cars parked in the residence hall lot without the designated parking decal will be subject to a ticket and possible fine.  For more information on visitor parking, please visit Public Safety's NSU Visitor Parking page.  You may also check out this interactive map showing the visitor parking lots on campus.
