The Residence Hall and Apartments at Northampton provide students the opportunity to reside on campus to be closer to their classes, become part of the on campus community, focus on their academics and take advantage of the multiple educational and fun opportunities offered to our students.
For students to be eligible to live on campus they need to be registered for a minimum of 9 credits each semester. In addition to maintain their eligibility to reside on campus each semester residents must meet the academic standards outlined in the Residence Hall Handbook.
For students to be eligible to reside in the Apartments in addition to meeting the requirements listed above, students must maintain a 2.5 cumulative grade point average (GPA). Students who fall below the required GPA will be reassigned to a space in the residence hall for the following semester.
The Residence Hall is comprised of mostly double occupancy rooms, however the building does offer triple and quad rooms as well. There are a limited number of single rooms available in the Residence Hall, however our returning students have priority in selecting them.
Each room in the Residence Hall and Apartment is slightly different, we will not able to provide you with specific dimensions of your rooms. However, each student is provided with a bed (XL Twin Mattresses), a dresser, desk chair, desk and closet.
