Housing and Dining

Living on campus 

Northeastern’s Oakland campus gives you a home base that’s at the center of the city’s action and connects you with the people and resources that will help you flourish.


You’ll find a range of safe and secure housing options, from traditional residence halls to family apartments, all set on a beautiful residential campus. 

First-year undergraduate students typically live in our historic Warren Olney and Orchard Meadow residence halls in the center of campus. Students build a strong community there that helps them adjust to college life, explore campus, and experience the Bay Area and beyond. Transfer, graduate, and other undergraduate students find a welcoming home on our lush, 135-acre campus, where they’ll reside in one of our historic Mediterranean-inspired halls or our Craftsman-style apartments.


Our campus dining options are not only delicious, but also environmentally sustainable. Much of our food is made with seasonal ingredients from local farms (including a community farm located on campus), so our chefs can cook from scratch in small batches and keep dishes fresh and healthy. Meals are served cafeteria-style at Founders Commons or cafe-style at the Tea Shop.
