Living at North Park
North Park University is at the heart of diverse neighborhood life at the corner of Foster and Kedzie Avenues on the north side of Chicago. Our campus is Christian, urban, and multicultural. North Park's setting is a lush, green, and walkable campus that's home to 1,000 resident students on more than 30 urban acres along the North Branch of the Chicago River.
Students who live on campus are more successful academically, more involved in the community, and more able to take advantage of campus resources. That's why North Park requires freshmen, sophomores, and juniors to live on campus, unless they're living with a parent or guardian. Learn more about Residence Life and Housing and take a look at our "flip book," Living at North Park.
Choose from four residence halls on North Park's campus. Meals for all residents are provided in the University's dining hall in the Magnuson Center, located right along the Chicago River. All residence halls offer a wide range of amenities, plus student-life programs and activities. Each hall also provides round-the-clock security with 24-hour front-desk staff and maintains a no-smoking and alcohol-free environment.
