Living on campus:
No one said that moving away from home and onto a college campus wouldn’t be a dramatic change. At Nicholls, we think that you’ll quickly forget any worries and start enjoying the benefits of living on campus. You’ll meet new people, be within walking distance from classes and campus hot spots, and undoubtedly discover interesting campus activities to participate in while not in class. Becoming a campus resident helps you keep your thumb on the pulse of campus. You’ll enjoy independence and freedom all with the help and support of our welcoming housing staff.
Choosing on-campus housing:
Nicholls offers a number of housing options to suit your preference and your budget. No matter where you choose to live, each residence hall offers on-site computer labs, instant WiFi, kitchen areas, media rooms, laundry facilities and private bathrooms. Rest easy knowing that your hall is protected by ID card reader entry systems as well as a help desk that is manned 24 hours a day by members of our housing staff. Check out more details by selecting a residence hall option below.
You can submit the Housing and Food Service contract as soon as you receive your acceptance letter from the Office of Admissions. Housing and meal plan costs are incorporated into your total cost of attendance. View our price comparison chart to decide which housing option suits you best.
Going hungry is not an option at Nicholls because we’ve worked hard to make sure that campus dining provides the variety and convenience that college students want. Galliano Dining Hall offers tons of options, from fresh-cooked pizza and pasta to home-style entrees, many of which are prepared right in front of you. You can build your own salad in the union, drive through for a delicious, over-sized muffin and a hot cup of coffee at Jazzman’s Cafe, stop in for a smoothie at the student recreation center (coming Fall 2012), or treat yourself to a plate of wings at The Colonels Retreat, our pub-style sports bar right here on campus.
Choosing a meal plan:
You select your meal plan when you complete the Housing and Food Service contract. Dining services offers a number of plans that let you take advantage of the dining hall and all of our retail eateries. Most students select a meal plan based on the number of meals they like to eat per day and the number of days they’ll be on campus each week. The plan will guarantee you a certain number of meals in the dining hall per week, and offer Munch Money to spend at retail establishments. Munch Money varies in amounts depending on the plan selected. This amount is a declining balance, which means your expenditures will be deducted from the predetermined amount that came with your meal plan.
