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 12 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 2.75 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.

Laundry Rooms are available in the Residence Hall and are available to all on campus residents for use. Students that reside in the on campus Apartments also have access to the washers and dryers in the residence hall, as they do not have a separate laundry room located in the apartments. All of the machines are high efficiency machines, so please buy HE detergent when you are buying supplies to bring to campus (laundry detergent pods are a great choice)! All washers and dryers are free of charge to residential students so need to worry about having quarters or putting money on a laundry card!
There are multiple lounges in the Residence Hall that provide space for studying, socializing and relaxing. Each lounge is equipped with a large screen TV, couches, chairs and tables. Students can utilize these spaces 24 hours a day and the Housing Staff use the spaces as well for evening and weekend programming. In addition, there is also a game room located in the residence hall for student use.
Each resident student will receive a mailbox number when they arrive on campus. Mail is delivered to the residence hall Monday through Friday each week while classes are in session. Students that receive packages will receive an email to their Spartan email indicating they need to stop by the College Mail room located in College Center to pick up their package. Mail sent to students should be addressed as follows:
