Northwest Undergrad

Housing at NU: Welcome Home.

You aren't just choosing a university. You're also choosing a place to call home. At NU, we are dedicated to creating a close, supportive, and safe community for all students. A place where you'll learn how to live life well with others. A place where you can thrive academically, spiritually, and socially. A place that feels like it was made just for you. Because it was.

One Community, Many Options:

Gray and Beatty Halls

Beatty Hall at Northwest University

Gray and Beatty offer a diverse community of first-year students and seasoned upperclassmen. The two independent buildings are joined together by a large lounge area that features a large-screen HDTV (great for movie nights) with Comcast Cable service, a pool table, and a small, private study room.

The beautifully renovated Gray/Beatty basement features an HDTV with surround sound speakers, a shuffleboard table, and a modern kitchen. This space can accommodate an entire floor of students for events.

Guy, Perks, and Crowder Halls

Crowder Hall at Northwest University

Guy, Perks, and Crowder Halls (GPC) house both first-year students and seasoned upperclassmen throughout nine floors. The three independent buildings provide the following common areas for NU community use:

  • Perks Lounge features a large-screen HDTV with Comcast Cable service, an air hockey table, a fireplace, and a large piano.
  • Perks Hall also provides our student government (NUSG) members with office space, where they are available as a resource for fellow students.
  • Crowder Lobby is a smaller lounge with comfy couches for studying or hanging out with friends.
  • The GPC community kitchen provides a full kitchen, lots of counter space and tables for cooking or studying, comfortable couches, and a wall-mounted TV with DVD player.
