Staying overnight on campus at North Park is a great way to experience the real flavor of student life here while still participating in all the activities offered during a customized individual visit.
High school seniors and transfer students are invited to participate in an overnight visit experience, beginning on a Sunday through Thursday night during the academic year. No overnight options are available during the summer or on Friday or Saturday nights. In addition, some weeks may be unavailable due to holiday vacations and finals weeks for our students.
What You'll Need
- All overnight student visitors are required to bring with them a valid photo ID, such as a driver's license, state or school ID, or passport. Our living areas are manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by a front desk attendant who checks the ID of all individuals entering the building.
- Students should bring their own bedding, such as a sleeping bag and pillow, towels, and toiletries, as well as enough clothing for a one-night stay.
- It's a good idea to bring spending money for "extras" — like snacks in the afternoon or a purchase at the campus bookstore.
- Overnight guests often like to bring a book to read or some homework of their own. Homework is a daily part of college life and your host may need to spend time studying during your stay. You should bring something to entertain yourself during these times.
Seniors and Transfers Only
North Park University offers this special overnight option for seniors in high school and transfer students.
Your Hosts are Current Students
We're fortunate to have many current students who love to share a taste of college life with students who are considering attending North Park. You'll be staying in a residence hall room for one night — and your host will likely have a roommate.
Remember that you'll need to respect the lifestyle expectations and floor policies of the hall you're staying in. When you arrive, share your schedule with your host so you can coordinate times you'll need to be in their room, and what activities you might participate in together.
Contact the Visit Desk if you have any questions about staying with a host student, or if you already know a current student that you prefer to stay with.
