3 College Junior

Campus Housing: On-campus housing is very nice in the fact that its right next to classes, however, for the cost and size of the rooms on campus it is not worth it. Furthermore, parking on campus is very expensive and adds to the cost of living on campus if you have a car, if you do not have a car it may be worth it.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I've had a hard time making friends in the dorm and I don't even have a roommate so there's no one to talk to

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I enjoy living on campus. I think that if I had chosen to live off-campus, then I would not have had the chance to meet so many awesome people this past year. I would do it again if I had the choice.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: McConnell Hall is not the best place to live in. The rooms are probably the smallest compared to the other halls. The furniture is old and majority of it is broken. I have been in other halls such as Wilson and their rooms are spacious and their furniture is practically brand new. The atmosphere in my hall is pretty loud, other residence have no respect for others and the bathrooms are nasty in wing 2B. Also, my dorm location is not convenient, all of my classes are on North Campus and there is hardly any good food on South, everything closes early on this side of campus.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus has been a great experience.

Campus housing at NAU is very good, especially after looking at the cost of living off campus. Of the four "Freshman Connection" halls, Reilly and Sechrist are the main epicenters for first-year interaction. These two high-rises on Central Campus are where the majority of freshman students are housed. They both are very clean, feature a number of amenities, and offer a diverse group of people. You'll meet a ton of folks just by leaving your door open and introducing yourself to those who walk by. Cowden Hall, also on Central Campus, carries its own culture. Home to the honors kids, it's generally very quiet and subdued—some might even say boring. McConnell is the redheaded stepchild of the freshman halls. McConnell's isolated location on the south end of campus, confusing floor plan, lack of elevators, and rowdy student athlete population make it somewhat less coveted than other dorms.

Living on campus is a great experience—you can walk everywhere! The halls on campus are all very nice and are all within distance of either the Dub or the Union. Students are able to live on campus for as long as they want, and as they get older, the halls to shoot for are Raymond, Aspen Crossing, Gabaldon, and the Greek hall, Mountain View. Beyond that, there's McKay Village and Pine Ridge Village, both luxury apartment complexes. The luxury apartments are fully furnished and are the best place to be for upperclassmen.

  • Freshman Connection Halls - The four freshman halls are Reilly, Sechrist, Cowden, and McConnell. If you live on campus and are a first-year student, you will likely be placed in one of these halls.
  • Living Learning Communities – In each of the freshman halls, NAU offers students the chance to live and be part of a community with fellow students who share the same interests or academic major. Activities, programs, and get-togethers are commonplace amongst these communities. Example floors include the education majors in Cowden and the forestry majors in Reilly.
Available for Rent
You can rent items to loft your bed if you live in a hall with twin beds! It helps with room a lot!
Did You Know?
  • Flagstaff, though small in most respects, is big on the Hollywood circuit. The 2004 teenybopper blockbuster "Raise Your Voice," starring Hilary Duff, is set in the Flag. Parts of the movie "The Exorcist" were also filmed here. There's even a rumor that Sechrist Hall, the tallest building in northern Arizona, can be seen somewhere in the background of the 1994 movie Forrest Gump.
