Residence Handbook

Res Life Handbook 2018-2019

The Residence Life Guide to Living On-Campus was created with the residential student in mind. It provides important information about living on campus, our policies and procedures, housing contract terms and conditions, and general community standards for all resident students at NSU. We urge you to familiarize yourself with this material as soon as you arrive on campus.
