Midland Michigan Residential Campus



Incoming Freshmen

Starting in fall 2018, freshmen will be required to sign a two-year residency agreement to live on-campus during their freshmen and sophomore years.* The addition of new state-of-the-art housing and renovation of existing housing units have resulted in first-class living and learning communities at Northwood, which will not only accommodate students but create an environment where tomorrow’s business leaders can thrive.

*For students whose permanent address is outside of a 50-mile radius of the Midland, Michigan campus.
