Summer Housing

at NIC's Residence Hall

Now accepting applications for dormitory housing for Summer 2024!

Offering on-campus housing from June through August provides students with a convenient option for academics while they engage in various summer activities and commitments.

NIC's campus on Lake Coeur d'Alene offers many opportunities for outdoor recreation such as swimming, renting paddleboards, and walking to downtown Cd'A. This setting not only provides a beautiful backdrop but also provides extra opportunities for students looking to continue their education over the summer.

Summer housing is calm and relaxing. It provides a place to have fun while studying, working, and being on a sunny campus full of activities to do.

Summer housing is super chill and much quieter than when school is in session. There is sadly no food from the SUB but there are always things to do. One can play at the beach or get student discounts through The Beach Shack. Thankfully,the gym is open, though limited, and comes in handy quite often.
