Residence Halls and Rates
HNU’s Residence Halls At-A-Glance:
When you live in the residence halls you’re part of the campus: close to the library, computer labs, and classrooms. Best of all, your friends—old friends and the ones you haven’t made yet—are right around the corner. Most residence halls are mixed-class halls, which means first-year students, sophomores, juniors, and seniors live in one shared community. The number of residents on each floor ranges from 30-60 students.

The Office of Housing & Residence Life is pleased to offer theme housing within our residence hall communities. Students with a shared interest live in close proximity to one another to create a more inclusive and active floor community. Residents have the option to select a themed community to live in during the housing application & selection process.Important Dates
We offer several communities within the residence halls that are gender-specific and have only one gender living on a particular floor. Male-only and Female-only floors are found in Dunn, Feehan, and Founders Halls All other floors are co-ed.
Gender Inclusive Housing
Students may choose to live in gender inclusive housing. Gender inclusive housing allows students to choose to share a community style floor and bathroom regardless of students’ legal sex or gender. Gender inclusive housing is not intended for romantic couples. Rather, it provides options for a variety of students: such as those who:
- may feel uncomfortable rooming with members of the same legal sex
- may be in the process of discovering their gender identity
- may feel they would be more compatible with a roommate of a different legal sex or gender
- do not want legal sex or gender to be a primary factor in choosing a roommate
Gender inclusive housing intends to help create a campus climate that is welcoming, inclusive, and supportive of all students.
For the purposes of our policies, the Office of Housing and Residence Life defines “gender inclusive” housing as that which allows for students to room together regardless of legal sex or gender identity.
While students are not required to disclose their gender identity, students who apply for housing without requesting a gender inclusive housing assignment will be placed in a space based on their legal sex. When determining what a person’s “legal sex” is, the Office of Housing and Residence Life will default to what has been officially reported in the college’s student records.
