We believe that life outside of the classroom is just as important as in. Which is why we strive to provide a healthy living environment where you can expand and grow as an individual. Living on campus lets you connect in a deeper way with the Northland community and imparts a sense of place, stability, and stewardship.
Theme Communities are a long standing tradition at Northland. Each spring, groups of four or more students apply to live together under a central theme. Theme Communities are an enriching experience for those living together, and they also bring passion, knowledge, and resources to the campus community as a whole. Living in a Theme Community is available for returning students only; first-year students can be a part of them for their sophomore year and beyond.
Each community works with a faculty or staff advisor and hosts a variety of theme-driven outreach and education events throughout the year. Residents of these communities work with the the Residential Life staff on programming and community development.
